What is a 75% LTV mortgage?

A 75% LTV mortgage refers to a mortgage loan where you borrow 75% of the property’s value and put down a 25% deposit. In other words, the Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio in this scenario is 75%. 

For example:

– Property value: £300,000

– 25% Deposit: £75,000

– 75% Mortgage: £225,000

This type of mortgage is quite common in the UK and offers a balance between competitive interest rates and deposit requirements.

Mortgage Repayment Calculator

How do 75% LTV mortgages work?

The Basic Mechanics

  1. Determine Property Value: The first step is to determine the property’s value you intend to buy.
  2. Calculate 25% Deposit: You will need a 25% deposit based on the property’s value.
  3. Apply for Mortgage: Once you know your deposit amount, you can apply for a 75% mortgage to cover the remaining property cost.
  4. Rate & Repayment: The lender will offer you a rate and repayment terms based on your credit history, income, and other factors.
  5. Finalise Deal: Once you agree to the terms, the deal is finalised, and the mortgage process commences.

Types of Repayments

– Repayment Mortgage: You pay both the interest and principal amount monthly.

– Interest-Only Mortgage: You only pay the interest monthly, and the principal is paid at the end of the loan term.

Why get a 75% LTV mortgage?

Competitive Interest Rates

One of the best reasons to go for a 75% LTV mortgage is that lenders generally offer more competitive interest rates compared to higher LTV ratios. This can save you a substantial amount of money over the loan term.

Lower Monthly Repayments

The more you pay upfront as a deposit, the less you’ll have to borrow. This usually translates to lower monthly repayments.

Easier Approval

A 75% mortgage can also make it easier to get approved for a loan, as it represents lower risk for lenders.

Greater Range of Lenders

This LTV ratio typically attracts a wider range of lenders, giving you better options to choose from.

What types of 75% LTV mortgage rates could I get?

Fixed Rate

With a fixed-rate mortgage, your interest rate remains the same for a predetermined period, usually between 2 to 5 years.

Variable Rate

The rate changes according to your lender’s standard variable rate (SVR), or it might be tied to the Bank of England’s base rate.

Tracker Rate

This is a type of variable rate mortgage where the interest rate tracks a specific index typically the Bank of England’s base rate.

Discount Rate

This offer gives you a discount on the lender’s standard variable rate (SVR) for a set period, usually 2 to 5  years.

Remortgage

Remortgaging is applied when you keep

living in your present property while applying for another mortgage deal with a new lender. Before finding out how to remortgage and get the best offers from experts like Ascot Mortgages, you have to check meeting what parameters of the deal that can help you succeed the most. The range of background factors varies a lot — from the recently changed loan-to-value ratio or your existing agreement coming to an end.

Whether you are trying to get a more beneficial deal or searching for funding to improve your home conditions, remortgaging is one of the most advantageous scenarios to consider.

Advantages of 75% LTV mortgages

Financial Benefits

  • Lower Interest Rates: One of the best 75% LTV mortgages advantages is the prospect of lower interest rates.
  • Cost Savings: Lower interest rates mean you’ll save money over the life of the loan.

Flexibility

  • Overpayments: Some deals may allow you to make overpayments without incurring a penalty – generally 10% of the mortgage balance.
  • Loan Portability: Easier to switch properties and transfer your existing mortgage.

Risk Mitigation

  • Less Risk for Lender: Lower risk often translates into faster approvals and fewer hurdles.
  • Equity Buffer: You start off with a 25% equity in the property, offering a cushion if property prices fall.

Disadvantages of 75% LTV mortgages

Initial Costs

  • High Deposit Requirements: Accumulating a 25% deposit is not easy and requires substantial upfront money.

Opportunity Cost

  • Locked-in Capital: The money paid as a deposit could have been invested elsewhere for potentially higher returns.

Market Fluctuations

  • Interest Rate Risk: Unless you lock in a fixed rate, you are exposed to fluctuations in interest rates.

Fees and Charges

  • Application Fee: Most lenders charge an application fee.
  • Early Repayment Fee: If you decide to pay off the loan early, you may be charged a fee.

Navigating the mortgage landscape requires expert advice. It’s crucial to weigh the pros and cons of a 75% LTV mortgage to determine if it’s the right fit for your financial situation. From rates to repayments, understanding the terms is vital to securing the best mortgage deal for you. Feel free to reach out to Ascot Mortgages; we’re always here to help!

FAQ

A 75% LTV mortgage is versatile and can be used to finance a range of properties. This typically includes:

– Primary Residences: Your main home where you live.
– Second Homes: Additional properties used for holidays or other personal purposes.
– Buy-to-Let: Investment properties that you intend to rent out.
– New Builds: Newly constructed properties.
– Always check with the specific lender about any property type restrictions they might have, especially for unique properties like listed buildings or those with non-standard constructions.

The maximum loan amount for a 75% LTV mortgage depends on the total value of the property you’re looking to purchase. As the name suggests, a 75% LTV means you’re borrowing 75% of the property’s value. For instance, for a property valued at £400,000, the maximum loan at 75% LTV would be £300,000. However, other factors, such as your income, outgoings, and creditworthiness, will also influence the exact amount you can borrow.

Yes, many lenders allow overpayments on a 75% LTV mortgage. However, it’s important to note that there might be early repayment charges (ERCs) if you choose to repay a significant portion or the entirety of the mortgage before the end of any fixed or discounted period. The specifics of these charges will be outlined in your mortgage agreement. It’s always wise to consult your mortgage terms or speak with your lender before making early repayments.

Certainly! If you have a 75% LTV mortgage, you can consider switching lenders or refinancing, especially if you’re looking to secure a better interest rate or change the terms of your mortgage. This is commonly known as remortgaging. Before making a switch, ensure you’re aware of any fees or early repayment charges with your current lender. Working with a mortgage advisor can provide a clearer understanding of potential benefits and costs associated with refinancing.
