Having a deposit is usually essential when obtaining a mortgage. However, the type of deposit can vary quite substantially. For those who have held a repayment mortgage for a while, it could mean sufficient equity in their property to only need to borrow 50% of their property value. For others, it’ll be the first step to pay off their mortgage. At Ipswich Building Society, we offer a range of different mortgages dependent on deposit, a number of which are tailored towards those who have at least 20 per cent of the property’s value ready to go.
20 per cent is considered a good level of deposit, meaning that some good value interest rates can be obtained.
We offer a number of deals to suit different buyers. Because it’s a larger proportion of the total sum, 20 per cent deposits are usually suitable for those that are moving onto their next property, whether through their need to move (perhaps as a young family seeking a larger home) or relocating for work. On some occasions, first time solo buyers may also put down this level of a deposit. It may be that you are a landlord looking for a buy-to-let mortgage. Our buy-to-let mortgage range varies so it’s a worth regularly reviewing our products for the latest offers.
