Can I get a mortgage with a small deposit?
There are two ways you can look at this. Either you need help securing a mortgage with a smaller deposit, or you need help boosting your deposit. Either way, there are government schemes to help you, but only if you are buying your first home. You cannot use them for a second home, to move home, or to purchase a buy-to-let property.
The first scheme will allow you to buy your first home with a 5% deposit. The second is an ISA account that will top up your savings, up to the value of £3,000. The first scheme can only be used on new build homes, so it can limit your choices.
