Popular First Time Buyer Mortgage FAQs in Southampton

Do I count as a first time buyer in Southampton?

Accorion Arrow

If you have never owned a home previously, you count as a first time buyer. Typically, the demographic for these types of mortgages are younger applicants. On the other hand, it is very normal for older applicants to still count as first time buyers.

If you are a current homeowner that lives with their partner who qualifies as a first time buyer, you may be able to apply for a joint purchase under the first time buyer classification,

Unusually, some lenders may put you into the first time buyer category if you haven't been in the market for a long time.

What do I need to buy my first home in Southampton?

Accorion Arrow

When purchasing your first home or any property in the future, you will need some sort of deposit. The deposit total that you will need is entirely dependent on the price of the property. For example, £210,000 property with 5% deposit = £10,500 deposit.

We'll measure your affordability and eligibility in order to try and find you the perfect mortgage deal. We will also help you select a conveyancing solicitor to carry out the legal proceedings that come with buying a home.

How much deposit do you need for a first time buyer mortgage in Southampton?

Accorion Arrow

If you are a first time buyer in Southampton with good credit, you would expect to be asked for a minimum of a 5% deposit. If you have bad credit, you may be asked to provide 10%-15%.

If you are fortunate enough to receive a gifted deposit from your family members or friends, you could put that towards your deposit. A gifted deposit is simply a lump sum of cash gifted to the buyer to use towards a deposit. This is strictly a gift and not a loan that will need paying back.

If you have good credit, putting down a higher deposit than suggested could open you up to more favourable interest rates. Your own deposit combined with a gifted deposit could stretch your deposit over the 10% mark.

Is it better to get a mortgage from a bank or a mortgage broker in Southampton?
