Mortgages for first time buyers

Mortgages on new build properties

With the Government funding various incentives for buying new build properties, lots of prospective buyers are looking to these kind of properties to make their homes; especially first time buyers. Finding a mortgage for a new build property can sometimes be a little trickier than if you were buying an older property but the mortgages that are out there often require a smaller deposit due to the various Help To Buy schemes currently available.

It can be a bit confusing but you don’t have to tackle the project alone – let TaylorMade find you the best deal on your new build property.

Upfront Fees

Whether your new build property has been built or not, developers will often ask for a reservation fee to be put in place to secure your plot. This is non-refundable so if you decide against buying the property, or your mortgage application doesn’t complete in time or falls through, you will lose this fee.


Time is often a factor when looking to buy a new build property. If your home has already been built, there’s usually a 28 day period to exchange legal contracts and to have a mortgage in place. With the usual mortgage application taking between 2-4 weeks it is essential to factor this in.

On the other hand, if you’re buying a plot that has yet to be built, you often don’t have to submit your full deposit until the property is near completion. This gives you time to continue saving for a bigger deposit which would significantly reduce your monthly repayments.

With a wealth of different incentives and schemes geared towards new build properties and first time buyers coming into effect, it can be a little overwhelming trying to figure out the best option to take.

If you’d like to get some expert advice on new build properties and the types of mortgages that would be most suitable; as well as up to the minute knowledge of all the latest government schemes available, contact one of our advisers at TaylorMade.
