If you’re looking for a first time buyer mortgage then we can help! Perhaps you have found your first home or  just need to find out how much you can borrow?

How much can you borrow on a first time buyer mortgage?

Depending on the lender you may even be able to get a mortgage with no deposit at all. There are such things as 95% mortgages (5% deposit) and even 100% mortgages where you personally would not need a deposit, however family members may need to help out.

There are also plenty of Government Help to Buy schemes to get you onto the housing ladder whilst spending as little money as possible.

By sitting down with a mortgage advisor you will be able to understand how much you can afford to borrow. The figure can always vary but some of the things mortgage lenders look at are:

  • Your monthly income
  • Your rough monthly expenditure
  • Any loans or unpaid credit cards
  • Any other debts, if any
