However, it’s important to note that even if you inherit a property, you’re still classified as a first-time buyer until you buy your first property.

The size of your deposit for a first-time buyer mortgage will depend on whether you use a first-time buyer scheme. Generally, you will need a minimum of 5% of the property value. However, the larger your deposit, the lower the interest rates you may receive, as you are considered a lower-risk borrower. Family members can gift your deposit to you, and some lenders may accept a family member as a guarantor if they own their own property.

The amount you can borrow for a first-time buyer mortgage depends on various factors, including:
