What is a new-build home mortgage?

A new build mortgage is the roughly the same as a mortgage for an existing property except that some lenders could reduce the amount you can borrow as the loan is seen as riskier.

They factor in that the value of the property could fall slightly after purchase as it will no longer be brand new. You may also have to meet tighter deadlines once you have reserved the property. You could also be eligible for so called “green mortgages” that offer incentives for brand new more energy efficient homes.

We have a specialist new build mortgage team who work with the UK’s leading house builders to make sure we can find you a mortgage to meet any timescales agreed with the developer.

Frequently asked questions

  • Is it harder to get a mortgage on a new build property?

    Most lenders will lend on a new build house, but a few will not lend on a new build flat. We can advise on availability before you make your reservation. As with all mortgages you will need to meet the lending criteria.

  • What is the minimum deposit for a new build property?

    It is usually 15% or the purchase price but some lenders will require 25%. There are some schemes available from a selection of lenders such as Deposit Unlock where only a 5% deposit is required. Our specialist advisers can tell you more about this scheme.

  • Is there an advantage to getting a mortgage for a new-build over an pre-owned property?

    The process could be quicker as you can avoid an upward chain, however, if you are buying off plan there could be an issue with delayed completions and the mortgage offer being invalid after three months. If you pull out of the purchase, you could lose the reservation fee paid to the house builder.
