Loan to Value

LTV (Loan-to-value) shows the ratio of the mortgage amount to the value of the property, as a percentage. It can go up to 90% of the purchase price and/or value of the property, unless:

  • The property is classified as a new build (one that has been built or converted within the last 24 months or that has been built longer than this but never occupied since construction/conversion). In this case, we can only offer up to 80% LTV for flats/maisonettes and up to 85% LTV for houses/bungalows.
  • You are looking to borrow additional funds, for example for home improvements, in which case we can only lend up to 85% LTV.

Additional criteria apply for loans above 85% LTV.

The following additional criteria applies for loans above 85% LTV:

  • 2 years accounts for self employed applicants
  • Minimum property value £75k
  • The property should be of standard construction, habitable, structurally sound and the valuer must not see any resale issues
  • Fees can only be added to the loan up to the maximum of 90% LTV (with the fee included)
  • All applications are subject to our credit score and affordability checks.
