Can I apply for a first time buyer mortgage?
As long as one person applying has never owned a property before, you can apply for a first time buyer mortgage with Reliance Bank.
• You must be buying a UK property
• You must be a UK resident or have rights to reside in the UK
• You must be at least 18 years old to apply for a mortgage, and your mortgage must usually end before you reach 75 years of age. If your mortgage term extends past your UK State Pension age or your expected retirement age – whichever happens sooner - we'll need to look at your retirement income or your employment income, if you are still working, the bank will need to work out whether it thinks you can afford the monthly payments
• If you’re taking out a joint mortgage, it’s the age of the oldest person that’s taken into account.
When you complete the application, please provide evidence of the above so that we can provide this offer to you.
