At Mansfield Building Society, we’re proud to support first time home buyers with a range of mortgage products and a flexible approach that can help you get your foot on the property ladder.

If you’re looking to buy your first home we have flexible criteria that could really help you buy the home that you’re looking for.

Low deposit mortgages are a major benefit for first time buyers and there are a number of ways that we can help. We can accept deposits that have been gifted from a family member and offer mortgages with as little as a 5% deposit.

These days, first time buyers looking for a mortgage may need this to extend beyond joint borrowing with partners, friends or siblings.

At The Mansfield, we allow up to four people on a mortgage application and that can include a family member acting as a guarantor to meet the mortgage payments in case the borrower may not be able to meet them. We can also allow circumstances where a close family member can contribute to the mortgage and not have any ownership rights on the property, this is something called a Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor mortgage.

As well as our flexible approach, there are various types of mortgages for first time buyers. Below is a selection from our range of mortgage products for first time buyers available in the UK across England, Wales and Scotland*.

*Postcode restrictions apply in Scotland, please see our Residential Mortgages – Important Information guide within the product details to find out more.

Definitions

1. Initial Rate

The Initial Rate is the rate available during the initial term of the mortgage. Once the initial rate term has expired, the mortgage will either revert to our Standard Variable Rate (SVR), or a follow-on rate that is a discount off our SVR. Our SVR is set by us and is currently 8.89%, as a variable rate it may go up or down. Our follow-on rate is 1.74% below our SVR and is currently 7.15% variable. Our follow-on rate will go up or down with changes to our SVR.

2. Overall Cost for Comparison

The Overall Cost for Comparison is given as the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) and includes all charges incurred relating to the mortgage. The APRC is intended to help you as a borrower compare the interest rates on different products.

3. Max LTV

Like all other mortgage lenders, we will allow you to borrow against a proportion of the overall property value. This is known as Loan to Value (LTV) and is expressed as a percentage. For example, if you want to purchase a property at £100,000 and you would like to borrow £85,000, then you will need a mortgage available at 85% Loan to Value (LTV). The available LTV can vary depending upon the type of mortgage. Shared Ownership mortgages will offer two percentages under LTV - the proportion of the property value and the proportion of the share being purchased.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
