95% LTV mortgages explained

At a glance

  • The LTV is the percentage of the mortgage you need to borrow against the total value of the property you are buying.
  • 95% LTV mortgages for first-time buyers can be a useful way to get on the property ladder as they require only 5% deposit.
  • These types of lower deposit mortgages generally have higher interest rates than the lower LTV alternatives.
  • Our tables below allow you to compare 95% LTV mortgages, so you can understand how much you would pay each month and any fees connected to applying for the mortgage.
  • Don't forget the additional upfront costs of buying a home, such as stamp duty and any solicitor's fees.

Advantages of 95% LTV mortgages

  • Low deposit. You only need a 5% deposit with a 95% LTV mortgage.
  • Potential savings each month. You may find that your monthly mortgage repayments are lower than any amount you could currently be paying for rent. However, you should remember that your total costs with interest over the term of your mortgage may be more expensive.
  • More choice. Lenders are increasingly offering 95% deals to meet first-time buyer mortgage demand.

Disadvantages of 95% LTV mortgages

  • Higher interest rates. Although the rates for 95% mortgages have fallen, they're still higher than the lower LTV alternatives.
  • Strict lending criteria. You'll need to make sure you have reviewed your affordability before applying for this mortgage.
  • Be careful of potential negative equity. If house price conditions change, and values fall, this could result in your house value dropping at a greater rate than you are paying off your mortgage.

Check your credit score

Before you apply for a mortgage it's important to check your credit score.

Moneyfacts tip

Moneyfacts tip Leanne Macardle

If you’re still not sure what kind of mortgage is right for you, you could consider using a mortgage broker. Not only can they provide valuable advice, but they may also have access to 95% LTV mortgage deals that are not available directly on the Moneyfacts charts.
