Now, High Street lenders have started offering mortgages to borrowers, offering just 5% of their deposits under the new government's surety program.The policies announced in the budget are designed to help first-time buyers get more security in their homes.But the opening comes as the average UK house price continues to hit record highs.Analysts also suggest that there are cheaper offers for those who can deposit 10%.

New offers

The program is slotxo similar to previous policies to stimulate the housing market and the economy, as well as to support first-time home buyers.The new scheme will be available to anyone purchasing a home costing up to £ 600,000 unless it is a second home.The government offers some guarantees, typically 15%, to compensate lenders if the borrowers default on their debt.The guarantees are designed to give lenders confidence in offering 95% worth of loans, most of which were withdrawn during the COVID crisis.

Lloyds, Santander, Barclays, HSBC and NatWest begin introducing the product this week, and Virgin Money will do it next month.However, some lenders such as Halifax, part of Lloyds Banking Group and Barclays, have said these products will not be available for newly built properties.Chancellor Rishi Sunak said: “Every new homeowner and mover supports jobs in the housing sector. But saving enough of that deposit can be difficult, especially for first-time buyers.By giving lenders an alternative to government guarantees for 95% of mortgages,

there will be many more products available,promoting the sector, creating new jobs, and helping people achieve their homeownership dreams." Yourself However, the lender will still investigate the ability to pay. Anyone who is unemployed or has sporadically increased incomes due to the impact of the employment disease epidemic may find it difficult to mortgage.House prices rise - partly due to government stimulus, and there are concerns, too, about the potential for some to fall in negative equity if this is followed by a sharp drop in property value.

Some of the new mortgage rates are close to 4% on a two-year fixed rate agreement. Analysts said this could drop significantly,with as much as 0.75 of a percent for borrowers who could raise their deposits by 10 percent.As more lenders are ready to launch deals for this sector of the market, [borrowers] 'option levels will likely increase," said Eleanor Williams of Financial Information Services Moneyfacts.Increasing competition within higher value-to-loan levels will hopefully translate into more competitive rates for these borrowers
