First Time Buyer Mortgages

Here at The Mansfield Building Society we’re proud to support First Time Buyers with a range of mortgage products that will help you get your foot on the property ladder.

We offer mortgages up to 95% Loan To Value (LTV), meaning that with just a 5% deposit you could get a mortgage for your first home.

We are delighted to be involved in the Help to Buy Scheme in England and Wales which is available to qualifying applicants up to a maximum of 75% loan to value, subject to the purchaser(s) providing a minimum cash deposit of 5% of the value. The scheme offers an equity loan provided by the Government of up to 20% of the cost of the property.

We offer a range of shared ownership mortgage products to allow you to purchase a share of the property and pay rent on the remaining portion. These products are not listed in the table below, please visit our shared ownership mortgages page to find out more.

Below is a selection from our range of mortgage products available for First Time Buyers in England and Wales. You can compare our full range of mortgage products online or contact our sales team for further help and advice.

Representative Example

A mortgage of £112,000 payable over 30 years initially on a fixed rate of 3.95% for 3 years and then on our current standard variable rate of 5.34% for the remaining 27 years would require 35 monthly payments of £532.26 and 324 monthly payments of £618.50 plus one initial interest payment of £303.01.

The total amount payable would be £220,255.11 made up of the loan amount, plus interest and fee(s) totalling £108,255.11. This includes Application Fee (£199), Legal Fees (£255), Chaps Fee (£25), Completion Fee (£300) and Redemption Administration Fee (£150).

The overall cost for comparison is 5.2% APRC representative.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage


1 The Initial Rate is the rate available during the initial term of the mortgage. Once the initial rate term has expired, the mortgage will revert to our Standard Variable Rate (SVR).

Our SVR is set by us and is currently 5.34%, as a variable rate it may go up or down.

2 The Overall Cost for Comparison is given as the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) and includes all charges incurred relating to the mortgage. The APRC is intended to help you as a borrower compare the interest rates on different products.

3 Like all other mortgage lenders, we will allow you to borrow against a proportion of the overall property value. This is known as Loan to Value (LTV) and is expressed as a percentage. For example, if you want to purchase a property at £100,000 and you would like to borrow £85,000, then you will need a mortgage available at 85% Loan to Value (LTV). The available LTV can vary depending upon the type of mortgage.

Shared Ownership mortgages will offer two percentages under LTV - the proportion of the property value and the proportion of the share being purchased.
