WHAT IS A MORTGAGE?
A mortgage is a special type of loan that you will take out from a financial provider so that you are able to buy property or land.
Mortgages on average run for 25 years but the term of the mortgage can be shorter or longer depending on your requirements.
You’re able to be leant the money through the loan as it is ‘secured’ against the value of the property whilst you pay it off in full over the term.
It’s vital you keep up with your mortgage repayments because if you don’t keep up your monthly repayments to your lender they can take back (repossess) your property which they can then sell on in order to reclaim the money they are owed from the mortgage.
HOW MUCH DO I NEED FOR A DEPOSIT?
When you are buying a new home you’ll need to pay for that property with a deposit.
This will be a good amount of money that you put down towards the overall cost of the home you are looking to purchase.
As a rule of thumb, the bigger the deposit you have for buying your home the lower your interest rate could be when getting your mortgage from your lender.
Here’s a quick example, a £10,000 deposit of your own money on a £100,000 property is 10% of the price of the home and your then pay for the rest of the property with the mortgage against the remaining 90% of the value.
