How to buy with Deposit Unlock

This means that they offer competitively priced mortgages for low deposit new build homes supporting first and second hand market buyers to own their homes. Upon completion of buying your new home which is offered as part of the Deposit Unlock scheme, the housebuilder pays a percentage of the purchase price into an insurance policy.

This new scheme protects the lender from a proportional of potential loss in the event of a default in payment. Customers only need to put down a 5% deposit and can purchase a property up to £833,250* with no restrictions on location, subject to lender’s approval.
