Are there any 95% Loan-to-value Mortgages available in Northern Ireland?

It is hard to save for a deposit in today’s economy regardless whether you are a First Time Buyer or a Home mover.  It is difficult if you own a property with little or no equity and want to get a remortgage while the rates are low.  Almost on a daily basis I get asked if there are there any 95% LTV mortgages available in Northern Ireland.

I thought this post might help even more people find the answer.

95% LTV Mortgages Northern Ireland (NI)

As a Financial Planner & Mortgage Adviser I always like to point out the risks with mortgages with such low deposits.  The Northern Ireland market is at best in the early stages of an economic recovery but what if NI house prices drop again? 95% loan-to-value mortgages could very quickly become negative equity mortgages.  It’s important to consider if you afford a bigger deposit?

So assuming you are comfortable with the risk; can you get a 95% loan-to-value Mortgage in Northern Ireland (NI) in the current market? The answers are shown in the table below depending on the type of mortgage you are looking for; Buy to Let, First Time Buyer, Help to Buy, Let to Buy, Remortgage, Self-Build or a Homebuyer mortgage.

As you can see 95% loan-to-value mortgages are few and far between and you need a good credit rating to get one.

Rates, Fees and Affordability

As with all mortgages the rates, fees and affordability calculations will vary from lender to lender.  For a 95% LTV mortgage in the current market, expect the fine tooth comb approach.

Good news for First Time Buyers, Help to Buy and Homebuyers with low deposits across Northern Ireland. Alas everyone else will have to save a little more or pay down their existing mortgages
