95% Residential fixed for 5 years

Secure your Residential mortgage with a 5 year fixed rate and just a 5% deposit required.

A 95% loan to value (LTV) mortgage allows you to borrow up to 95% of your property value or the purchase price, whichever is lower – this means that you only need to contribute a minimum 5% deposit.

95% mortgages are only available on our residential product range if you’re purchasing a property with a loan size of up to £500,000. The maximum amount we will lend will depend on your individual financial situation and other circumstances.

We will purchase additional security in the form of an insurance policy which protects us and not you in the event that we suffer a loss on the possession and sale of the property. The premium for this policy is included in the rate we charge for the mortgage.

 

The mortgage listed below moves on to our Standard Variable Rate, currently 4.9% (variable), after the initial rate period. There may be a limit on how low your interest rate can fall. This is called an ‘interest rate floor’. The interest rate floor applicable to your loan will be specified in your loan documentation.
