Guarantor MortgagesA guarantor mortgage is an option available to borrowers with very little in terms of deposit. This is a type of mortgage in which a family member or friend will act as guarantor and place themselves on the mortgage with you, this is a good way in which a parents can help their children make that first step on to the property, this does have the negative impact of possibly making the guarantor responsible for the mortgage if payments are missed, so should be considered carefully. Either You or they will still need a decent deposit between you to qualify.
Gifted Deposit MortgageAn alternative way for a parent to help their loved ones is `gifting` them the initial deposit for the purchase of buying their first home. Many lenders will accept a gifted deposit, this will also enable you to purchase a property with 0 down from yourself, with a little help from your family or friends. First Choice Finance have a number of lenders available for home buyers who may want to use a gifted deposit.
If you haven`t got the help of friends or family to give you that first step up onto the property ladder, the government have a number of home buyer schemes available, some created specifically for first time buyers.
Help To Buy SchemeHelp to buy is a scheme brought in from the government to allow you to borrow money for the initial equity for a property from the government, up to 20% of the property value (40% in London). You will however require a 5% deposit yourself, but this scheme does widen the range of properties available to you. First Choice Finance work with an extensive panel of lenders offering mortgages available via the help to buy scheme.
Shared OwnershipThis is a scheme brought in to help buyers purchase new build houses from property developers / builders. You purchase a percentage of the property while the rest of the property will be owned by the local authority / housing association. You will pay a mortgage on the amount of equity that you own and rent to the local authority on the remainder of the equity.
Buying Council House With No DepositIf you are renting a council property then you may be able to purchase your property via the government right to buy scheme without a deposit, the right to buy scheme allows you to purchase your council house with a deposit granted depending on how long you have lived in the property, this deposit can be used instead of a initial down payment or deposit.
All these options are available for consideration if you are looking for around 100% to 95% mortgage. Although in many cases the best cause of action is to try and save the initial deposit yourself, this will allow you to have many more options when looking for a property and mortgage and may enable you to find mortgage offers at lower rates than having no deposit.
