Mortgage without a deposit

You can get a mortgage without a deposit in Nottingham
These days it is unusual for any lender to offer a mortgage without a deposit. However, Lloyds bank has stepped up and is now offering a new deal to help first time buyers.
Sometimes called a 100% mortgage, the first time buyer will not need to have saved a deposit when they apply. There is a catch though, and one of their family members must have 10% of the purchase price in their Lloyds savings account.
The property will still be in the first time buyer’s name and will still legally own the property.
What are the repayments like for a mortgage without a deposit?
Generally 100% mortgages can cost more. The interest rate is fairly high compared to other fixed deals and at the time of writing is 2.99%.
The mortgage deal is fixed for three years which means payments will never change throughout this time. The family member will also get their savings back at the end of the three years, as long as all repayments are made throughout the term. The savings cannot legally be retrieved until this time.
What does this mean for first time buyers?
Saving for a deposit is often one of the biggest hurdles for those looking to get onto the property ladder. Lloyds have stated that this mortgage deal is part of a £30bn commitment to help first time buyers.
Other lenders such as Barclays are also offering great deals for those looking to buy their first home, however most of those require at least a 5% deposit.
