First time buyers

The Loughborough’s range of mortgages, specially designed for First Time Buyers, mean you could borrow up to 95% of the value of the property you want to buy.  If you have a larger deposit, there will be other mortgages in our range available to you.

How much can I borrow?

How much can I borrow and what would it cost?

Our mortgage calculator is designed to show you how much you could potentially borrow and how much your monthly payments would be. The amount is based solely on your income without deducting household expenses and financial commitments. Your mortgage adviser will take you through the application process and will calculate the amount you can afford to borrow based on your income after the deduction of those expenses and commitments. Further restrictions may apply for specialist products.
