90% LTV Mortgages for first time buyers
There’s no question that the top 90% Loan to Value (LTV) mortgage deals for first time buyers are starting to look better at last as more and more lenders begin to offer 90% mortgages again creating healthier competition and better deals.
High LTV Mortgages, such as the 90% mortgages discussed here enable first time buyers with a low deposit to put down just 10% of the property value as the deposit. There are quite a number of 90% mortgage deals now available, each with potentially different mortgage lending criteria, interest rates, lending charges and conditions. It can be quite a chore to search through the lenders deals yourself, and as comparison websites don’t always have access to the lenders best deals, so it is always a good idea to speak to a knowledgable mortgage broker – such as Ascot Mortgages to make sure you are getting the best mortgage available.
Lending criteria for 90% LTV Mortgages
90% Mortgages do usually come with stricter lending criteria which can vary between lenders – but fortunately as the mortgage market is beginning to ease up (2013) this lending criteria is gradually relaxing. However a good credit score is generally essential with all lenders.
Word of caution – not all 90% mortgages can be considered a “good deal” – it can be quite common for 90% LTV mortgages to have higher than average lending charges, higher interest rates, and /or expensive extended tie-in. So if you are considering taking out a 90 percent mortgage you should speak to a reputable mortgage broker such as Ascot Mortgages who will be able to make sure you are getting the best mortgage deal available.
