Become a homeowner

The government has announced a new mortgage guarantee scheme to support a new generation in realising the dream of home ownership. This means that homebuyers can pay just a 5% deposit on their new home.


The aim is to increase the availability of 95% mortgages, enabling more households to access mortgages without the need for large deposits. Until recently, most lenders were only offering 85% mortgages.


As the scheme is backed by the Government it means the risk is reduced for the lender. The hope is more first-time buyers will use this as a chance to get onto the property ladder and own their own home.


The scheme is available to buyers of properties costing up to £600,000 and the mortgages will be available on homes purchased from April 2021 until 31 December 2021. Buyers will still need to go through the usual affordability checks too.
