Residential Mortgage

A residential mortgage is a large loan used to help one or more people buy a home. However, you won’t be able to buy the home to rent out or use for business purposes because the property must be used as a residence by the applicant taking out the mortgage.

A minimum deposit of 20% to 30% of the property’s worth is required to qualify for the cheap residential mortgage rates. So to get the best rates on a £200,000 home, you’ll need a deposit of £60,000 or more. Some lenders, however, may issue residential mortgages if you have a 5% to 10% deposit or £10,000 to £20,000 on a £200,000 house but the interest rates might be higher.

An offset mortgage is a mortgage connected to your savings account, providing you to use your savings to lower the cost of your mortgage. You will reduce the interest charged on your mortgage rather than collecting money on your savings. As these are considered repayments against the overall balance rather than savings, an offset mortgage is also a tax-efficient choice for homeowners who may have been liable to pay tax on savings deposits.
