The Mortgage Guarantee Scheme FAQ's

If you have any questions about the Mortgage Guarantee Scheme that are not listed below, please give one of our mortgage advisors a call on 0191 359 2270 or drop us an email.

Am I Eligible?

The mortgage guarantee scheme is available to first-time buyers and home movers across the UK. You’ll need to be buying a property to live in yourself – second homes and buy-to-let properties are not permitted. Both new-build and existing properties priced up to £600,000 are eligible.

Do I Need A Good Credit Score To Be Accepted?

A lender will always look at your credit record as part of the mortgage application. They want to see how risky it might be to lend to you, by understanding if you have had any previous debt problems or adverse credit.

When a mortgage has a high Loan to Value mortgage lenders are willing to take less risks, but your credit score doesn’t have to be spotless. Each lender has its own criteria guiding whether or not you will be accepted and our mortgage adviser will be happy to assist you in assessing if you are eligible for a 5% deposit mortgage.
