5% deposit? We can help

Your Move estate agents has launched a new campaign which is geared to helping local people who want to buy a home but who have only a small deposit available for a mortgage.

The campaign, which is running from now until 30 September, should be of particular interest to existing tenants or first time buyers who, despite only having five per cent deposit, will now be able to gain the support and advice of Your Move’s local financial advisor in sourcing finance to buy - something the company knows many are only too eager to do.

Rob Taylor of Your Move in Langney said, “Our parent company, LSL Property Service plc has only just reported that 96 per cent of registered tenants want to become homeowners but that 45 per cent of those surveyed saw the inability to save for a deposit as being the main obstacle to this. It’s clear, therefore, that while many want to own a home, it is the lack of a substantial deposit that is of concern and that’s where we can now help. And, unlike some Government Schemes, which are only geared to supporting the purchase of new build properties, we can assist in finding funding for any property of the customers choosing.

“In addition, the benefit of using Your Move is that we can research literally thousands of mortgage products from a lender panel that is representative of the whole of the market. It means we can help the customer to identify the product that is most suitable for their individual needs - so they don’t have to. And it’s not just about finding a mortgage either. Your Move will also be able to offer ongoing support while the mortgage application is being processed including making any necessary phone calls and identifying potential problems before they occur to minimise their impact. At all stages we make sure the client is kept informed. It’s at no extra cost to the customer but simply part of our award winning mortgage service which we can’t wait to tell new customers – including those with the smaller deposits.”
