Criteria Update

Great news! We’ve enhanced our approach to Incentives on New Build. From Monday 20 March, we will be saying ‘yes’ to more New Build applications at 95% LTV.

Key Changes
  • Where the value of the financial incentive is up to 2% of the purchase price/valuation (whichever is the lower), there is no impact to the maximum LTV of 95% on New Build houses and 90% on New Build flats.
  • If the value of the financial incentive is more than 2% of the purchase price/valuation (whichever is the lower) then the maximum LTV is reduced by 5%.
