High Street lenders are now starting to offer mortgages to borrowers offering a deposit of just 5% - under a new Government guarantee scheme.

The policy, announced in the Budget, is designed to help more first-time buyers secure a home.

Reacting to the news, Mustafa Nurettin, Managing Director of Uniform Mortgages said “a larger number of mortgage lenders are now participating in the 5% deposit mortgage – this now means more choice.”

He added: "The 5% deposit is a very positive move as this will obviously allow people to buy property with a smaller deposit.

“As independent mortgage advisors, we will have access to the whole market place on behalf of our clients. So, we would suggest clients and potential/new clients call us and we can carry out an affordability and criteria check and then find the best fit for them.

“That’s as opposed to a busy person looking to get a mortgage having to trawl through the entire market and offerings off their own back. Let us do some of the hard work for you!”
