Deposit Boost Scheme
If you have a 10% deposit, we could boost it with a further 5% - meaning you only need an 85% mortgage.
Increase your deposit by 5%
This means you need to borrow less from a lender and could even secure a more competitive mortgage rate.
Here’s an example of how Deposit Boost works:
If you were looking to buy a £160,000 home you would need to have at least a £16,000 deposit (10% deposit). We could then top up to an additional £8,000 (5% deposit), giving you a total deposit of £24,000. You would then need a 85% mortgage.
