Frequently asked questions

An 85% LTV mortgage, which is sometimes called an 85 LTV mortgage, is on the higher end of the loan-to-value scale but they are more common than 95% or 100% LTV mortgages. We look at how they work and what you need to be aware of before applying.

What is an 85 LTV mortgage

An 85% loan-to-value mortgage means your total borrowing is 85% of the property value. The remaining 15% is the deposit you put forward.

An 85% LTV mortgage is considered one of the higher loan-to-value ratio mortgages, so you will pay a higher interest rate on your borrowing than someone who puts down a 25% or more as a deposit. This because the more you put down as a deposit the less risky a lender will consider you to be.  

What are the best 85% LTV mortgages?

You will need to compare different mortgage deals to find the best deal for you but be aware that an 85% LTV mortgage will end up being more expensive over the lifetime of an entire mortgage term - normally 25 years - as not only is the interest rate higher, but the total amount to be paid back is also higher.

  • An 85% mortgage will usually be more expensive than an 80% mortgage of the same amount, but cheaper than a 90% mortgage

Can I afford an 85% loan-to-value mortgage?

What you can afford is largely determined by what you can put forward as a deposit and what you can afford to pay back each month, but not exclusively.

When taking out a mortgage you should always leave yourself some wiggle room – typically 5% to 10% is advised – to account for extra and unexpected costs.

For instance, if your property is over the Stamp Duty threshold you will have to pay stamp duty. This is a tax that is charged as a percentage of the property’s purchase price. You will also have solicitor and mortgage arrangement fees to consider, as well any potential repairs you may have to undertake.

  • When buying a house you have to factor in unexpected costs, it’s also a good idea to have 3 to 6 months worth of household bills and expenses (including your mortgage payments) in an accessible savings account.

What is 85% LTV?

An 85% LTV mortgage is a loan worth 85% of a property’s price, so you, the borrower, will be putting in 15% deposit of your own money. This is also known as the equity share.

How does an 85% mortgage work?

Say you want to buy a property worth £150,000, then to borrow 85% LTV you would need to be able to put down a deposit of £22,500, so you would borrow the remaining 85%, or £127,500. 

Is an 85% LTV mortgage better than a 95% LTV mortgage?

The more deposit you can put forward the better, as the lower your LTV, the lower the interest rates charged, and also lenders tend to offer more deals on 85% LTV mortgages than they do on 95% mortgages.

Can you get 85 remortgage deals?

If you already own a home and are looking to switch your mortgage or remortgage then you would need a minimum of 15% equity in your home, you would not be able to remortgage if you only had a 5% equity share in your home.

Can I get an 85 LTV buy to let mortgage?

No, you can't get an 85% LTV buy to let mortgage with a 15% deposit. Most buy to let lenders require a minimum deposit of at least 25%. Although some buy to let mortgage lenders do have specialised mortgage deals for portfolio landlords who may have several properties, 

Lending criteria for 85% mortgages

Most lenders have a limit on how much they will lend, based on the LTV requested. Mortgage lenders will have an upper ceiling on the amount they will lend, for example mainstream lenders may offer up to £750,000 if a borrower is putting in a 15% deposit but would increase the amount to over £1m if the deposit was 25% or over.

Of course lending criteria is also based on salary and the credit score of the mortgage applicant, each lender will have their own criteria. Some more specialised lenders, such as sub prime lenders may have more available deals to borrowers with a small deposit.

Other criteria might include:

  • Whether the property is a new build

  • Whether you have another mortgage
