Mortgage guarantee scheme

Now you only need a 5% deposit, you could be living in your ideal home sooner than you thought.

We all need a helping hand occasionally.
Well, buying your beautifully designed, thoughtfully finished Dandara home just got that little bit easier.
From April 2021, thanks to the new government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, 95% mortgages will be more widely available, meaning you only need a 5% deposit.
What’s more, the scheme is available to both first-time buyers and those moving on from an existing home.

Dotting the Is and crossing the Ts on the mortgage guarantee scheme. 

To help home buyers struggling to save a high mortgage deposit in the current environment, the government is offering lenders incentives to encourage them to offer 95% mortgages. Understandably, they want to make the scheme as simple as possible so more people can access it. But there are a few conditions, which we’ve summed up here for you. It must:

  • Be a residential mortgage (not on a second or buy-to-let home) taken out by an individual or individuals rather than an incorporated company. 
  • Be on a property in the UK with a purchase value of £600,000 or less. 
  • Have a loan-to-value between 91% and 95%. 
  • Be originated between the dates specified by the scheme. 
  • Be a repayment mortgage and not interest-only. 
  • Meet standard requirement in terms of the assessment of the borrower’s ability to pay the mortgage, for example a loan-to-income and credit score test.
