On your own
Struggling to save a house deposit? Use your track record of paying rent each month to get a 100% mortgage. Meaning you can stop renting, and start building up equity in your very own home.
If you're currently renting but are struggling to save a house deposit, Skipton Building Society's Track Record Mortgage could be for you.
If you can evidence that you've paid your rent and household bills in full and on-time for 12-months, Skipton will consider lending you the full value of the property - no deposit needed. Like all schemes, Skipton's No Deposit Mortgage is subject to affordability and credit score checks.
All mortgages have risks and benefits. Here are some key factors you should know before applying for Skipton's Track Record Mortgage.
Buy a home with no deposit
With Skipton's 100% Mortgage scheme, you can get a mortgage without having any savings in the bank. If you do have a deposit, it must be less than 5% of the property purchase price - this includes any gifted deposits.
Get on the ladder sooner
On average, it takes a buyer 8 years to save up for a house deposit, and with the cost of renting rising - it's only getting harder to save. With Skipton's Track Record Mortgage, you could buy your first home without having to spend years saving up for a deposit.
Buy with another renter
If you've been renting separately, you can still apply for Skipton's Track Record Mortgage together providing you've both been paying 100% of the rent & bills in your rentals.
Start building up equity
Providing the home you buy doesn't go down in value, you'll begin to build up equity as you make your monthly mortgage repayments. Research shows you'll be £350,000 better off over a 30 year period by becoming a homeowner vs someone that rents.
You could end up with negative equity
Because you are not putting in any or very little downpayment, there is a much higher risk of ending up with negative equity - this is when you owe more to your mortgage lender than the home is worth.
You might not be able to borrow what you need
Skipton will look at your 6-month average rental payments to determine how much you can borrow. They'll compare that to your affordability using their regular calculator. Whichever number is lower is the amount they'll lend.
It's not suitable for housesharers
You'll need to demonstrate that you've consistently paid all of the rent & household bills for at least 12 months in a row during the last 18 months. This means people renting in a house share are not eligible for this scheme, neither are couples who lived together but are now splitting up.
You cannot buy a new build flat
New build flats are not eligible to be bought using Skipton's 100% Mortgage scheme (new build is classed as anything new or converted in the last 3 calendar years). However, new build houses are acceptable.
