Shared Equity

A mortgage where a buyer purchases a percentage of the total value of the property and is repaid at a slowly during the term or when the property is sold or remortgaged. Typically nothing will be repaid for the first five years and after this point the interest will be serviced, which is why some choose to remortgage their property to repay their shared equity loans at this point. Speak to our Wakefield mortgage advisers to find out more.

Bad Credit Mortgages for First Time Buyers

If you have had defaults, CCJs or missed payments in the past it can be very difficult to secure a first time buyer mortgage. It may be that you have already been turned away by your high street bank. Working with our mortgage brokers we can advise on specialist mortgage products for people with less than perfect credit.

Exclusive First Time Buyers Deals

There are mortgages that are designed especially for first time buyers that can include exclusive rates and cashback which can help to pay for solicitors. Be sure to take mortgage advice from an expert, as these may not always be the best option available on the market and in some cases there can be cheaper products out there.

Shared Ownership for First Time Buyers

This mortgage scheme is where you purchase a percentage of the property, for example 50 or 75% of the overall value and pay rent on the remaining portion which is owned by the housing association. You mortgage need a mortgage for your share, so if the property was worth £100,000 overall and you purchased 75% you can borrow up to 95% of your share, which would be £75,000.

Right to Buy

A scheme where the council offers their tenants the option to purchase their property at a discount. You need to have lived in the property for a certain amount of time and have met a number of qualifying criteria. A deposit is not always necessary to secure this kind of mortgage. Our expert mortgage brokers can tell you more.
