First-time buyer mortgages explained

One of the questions we’re always asked by first-time buyers is: what will it cost? Instead, we flip it round and look at what you can afford and the amount you want to spend each month on your mortgage repayments.

What interest rate you pay will depend on your deposit – usually 5%-10% – and your personal circumstances. There’s a choice to be made between fixed and variable rate mortgages, and the length of your mortgage too.

The aim is to maximise your borrowing potential, minimise your payments and ensure you can manage your mortgage throughout the lifecycle of your mortgage.
