If you need to go with a specialist or subprime lender you may find this restricted to 80% or even lower.\r\n<h2 id="rates-lower">Why is the LTV rate for new builds lower?<\/h2>\r\nNew build properties are usually built to a quality standard and therefore have better energy efficiency than older homes. Despite this, getting a mortgage for one can be more difficult than for older properties.\r\n\r\nThe value of a new build property can quickly decrease so some mortgage lenders are less willing to loan larger amounts of money for them.\r\n\r\nThis protects them against losing money in the event that the borrower defaults on their mortgage and they have to repossess. If the property sells for a lot less than they loaned for, the lender will lose money.\r\n<h3>New build properties that haven\u2019t been built yet<\/h3>\r\nAs well as this, if the new build home you wish to buy hasn't been fully built yet, then lenders might be more reluctant to lend to you.\r\n\r\nThis is because the standard of the property cannot be fully assessed which makes it difficult for the lender to calculate how much they could resell it for in the event of repossession.\r\n\r\nAdditionally, if the property hasn\u2019t yet been built, a surveyor cannot assess the risk of the property having faults that may need costly repairs.\r\n\r\nAny unforeseen repairs could affect the borrower\u2019s ability to pay their mortgage, which poses a risk to lenders. Because of this, many are reluctant to loan larger amounts for new builds and offer loan to value rates of 85%.\r\n<h2 id="affect-rate">What can affect my LTV rate for a new build?<\/h2>\r\nA lender wants to be confident that you can afford to pay your mortgage, so if you pose a risk, your LTV rate can be lower, meaning that you are offered a smaller loan.\r\n\r\nFor example, if you are on a lower income, have unsteady employment or have a lot of debt, lenders may view your\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/mortgage-application\/">mortgage application<\/a>\u00a0as risky, which potentially means a higher rate of interest and a larger deposit is required.\r\n<h3>What if you have multiple issues on your application?<\/h3>\r\nIf you have multiple issues at once, this will often further restrict the number of mortgage lenders available, making it harder to find a mortgage which will cover the cost of the property you want to buy.\r\n\r\nIf you have any issues on your application, don\u2019t feel disheartened and give up as it doesn\u2019t necessarily mean that buying a new build property is impossible.\r\n\r\n<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">Speak to an expert<\/a>\u00a0for advice on what other factors can affect your LTV rate and how to get a new build mortgage with an affordable LTV.\r\n<h2 id="100">Is it possible to get a 100% mortgage for a new build home?<\/h2>\r\nIn some very rare circumstances, it may be possible to get a mortgage with no deposit for a new build property. That being said, there are only a small handful of lenders who may be willing to provide <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/deposits\/no-deposit-mortgages\/">a 100% mortgage<\/a>.\r\n\r\nSome of the lenders that offer 100% mortgages require security, which may involve a family member who owns their own home to be named on the mortgage too. Alternatively, they may be required to put up assets or equity of their own as collateral.\r\n\r\nThis would mean that if you fall behind on your mortgage payments, your relative would be liable and may lose their home.

See our <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/95-ltv-mortgages\/#new-build">guide to 95% LTV mortgages<\/a> for more information.\r\n<h2 id="harder-flat">Is it harder to mortgage a new build flat?<\/h2>\r\nUnfortunately, it can be difficult to find a lender who will provide a mortgage for a new build flat and for the lenders that will, often they only 85% of the property\u2019s value.\r\n\r\nThis can be frustrating for buyers, especially as often there is a misconception that it will be easier to mortgage a flat rather than a house because they can be cheaper.\r\n\r\nEven if a flat were cheaper than a house, lenders view new-build flats as more of a risk. This is because some flats can be harder to sell in the event that the lender has to repossess the property to recover the money they loaned.\r\n\r\nNew builds are notoriously more difficult to sell in general, especially if there are still available new plots on the land it is built.\r\n\r\nTherefore, a flat that has already been lived in can appear less attractive to other buyers, making it harder for the lender to sell.\r\n<h3>Can you find a lender for a new-build flat?<\/h3>\r\nAlthough new build flats can be harder to mortgage, there are lenders who will consider loaning for them.\r\n\r\nYou may need to be prepared to save up a bigger deposit than if you were buying a house but the advisors we work with will take the time to search through the current rates and conditions to ensure you find the best deal.\r\n\r\n<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">Contact one of our team<\/a>\u00a0here and they can put you in touch with a specialist.\r\n<h2>Can you get a mortgage for a new build that is a \u2018non-standard\u2019 construction?<\/h2>\r\nMany new homes are built with materials and techniques that make them \u2018non-standard.\u2019\r\n\r\nLenders can also be wary when it comes to loaning money for mortgages on <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/property-types\/non-standard-construction\/">non-standard construction<\/a> builds because this too can affect the property\u2019s saleability in the event that they have to repossess.\r\n\r\nThis is because certain <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/property-types\/">property types<\/a> can be expensive to maintain or repair as specialist craftsmanship and materials may be needed. This can often put future buyers off.\r\n<h3 id="non-standard">Are there lenders who will mortgage a non standard construction new build?<\/h3>\r\nPotentially, yes, as all lenders have different criteria when it comes to non-standard construction properties.\r\n\r\nSome may have rules that allow them to accept certain types of properties or materials whereas others may not. Many will rely solely on the valuer\u2019s comments.\r\n\r\nBecause of the varying criteria between lenders, it\u2019s advisable that you\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">speak to a mortgage broker<\/a>\u00a0as they will know what each lender will accept or reject.\r\n\r\nAlternatively, see our<a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/property-types\/non-standard-construction\/">\u00a0non-standard property<\/a> section here.\r\n<h2 id="credit-checked">Will I be credit checked when I apply for a new build mortgage?<\/h2>\r\nYes. <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/bad-credit-mortgages\/mortgage-credit-check\/">Credit checks<\/a> are an unavoidable part of applying for a mortgage as lenders will want to assess the risk you pose to them as a borrower.\r\n\r\nIf you have \u2018bad credit\u2019 some lenders may see you as a risk and can reject your application.\r\n\r\nThat being said, the severity and date of your \u2018bad credit\u2019 can have an impact on whether or not you are accepted or rejected by any given lender.\r\n\r\nThere are some lenders who may be happy with your \u2018bad credit\u2019 whereas others may not be so lenient.\r\n\r\nIn these cases, sometimes a larger deposit can improve the likelihood of acceptance as well as the range of lenders to choose from.\r\n\r\nFor more information on this see our\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/bad-credit-mortgages\/how-to-get-a-mortgage-with-bad-credit\/">bad credit mortgage<\/a> section here.\r\n\r\nAlternatively,\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">make an enquiry<\/a>\u00a0and we\u2019ll refer you to one of the experts for the right advice.\r\n<h2 id="find-lender">How to find lenders that offer the best LTV rates for new build mortgages<\/h2>\r\nTo find the best LTV rate for a new build mortgage, you should\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">speak to a mortgage advisor.<\/a>\r\n\r\nThis is because the rate you are offered can vary depending on many factors such as whether you have bad credit, are in retirement age, are a sole applicant or if you're looking for a <a href="https:\/\/www.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/self-employed-mortgages\/">mortgage while self-employed<\/a>.\r\n\r\nAn experienced broker will be able to assess your situation in depth and suggest lenders that can offer you the best deals.\r\n\r\nThis can help you avoid any nasty rejections on your credit file as well as make the process of finding a lender much faster.\r\n<h2 id="how-help">How can a mortgage broker help you?<\/h2>\r\nWhen seeking professional advice about your new build mortgage application, it is crucial that you speak to a broker who has real experience in negotiating mortgages for new builds.\r\n\r\nGetting incorrect or poor advice from a broker can cost you money and can also result in your mortgage application being unnecessarily rejected.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Negotiate with mortgage lenders who provide 90% LTVs on new builds<\/li>\r\n \t<li>Talk you through the pros and cons of each lender and their conditions<\/li>\r\n \t<li>Find lenders who will potentially accept you even in instances where you may have been rejected from high-street lenders such as Natwest, Halifax and Santander<\/li>\r\n \t<li>Source the best deals and ensure that the terms and conditions of the mortgage are affordable and suitable for you<\/li>\r\n<\/ul>\r\n<h2 id="speak">Speak to an expert today<\/h2>\r\nIf you have questions about which\u00a0mortgage lenders have the best LTV for new builds or just want to speak to an expert for the right advice, call Online Mortgage Advisor today on 0808 189 2301 or\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/enquiries.onlinemortgageadvisor.co.uk\/match-me-with-a-specialist-broker">make an\u00a0enquiry here.<\/a>\r\n\r\nThen sit back and let us do all the hard work in finding the broker with the right expertise for your circumstances.\u00a0We don\u2019t charge a fee and there\u2019s absolutely no obligation or marks on your credit rating.
