I have a 10% deposit to put down but require a large mortgage, what are my chances?

Q: I have a 10% deposit to put down but require a large mortgage of £990,000.00. What are my chances of getting a mortgage?


In the current post credit crunch mortgage market, it is difficult to obtain a 90% loan-to-value mortgage for a loan size of over £ 500,000 through high street lenders. If you are eligible for a Professional Mortgage i.e. you are a fully qualified and practising medical doctor, dentist, accountant, solicitor, veterinary surgeon, teacher, pharmacist or ophthalmic optician registered with the appropriate UK professional body, then we may be able to arrange a 90% mortgage for this loan size. Alternatively, if you have a high income which would make it affordable for you to reduce the loan-to-value of your mortgage down to 65-70% loan-to-value within the space of a couple of years, then we may be able to approach a Private Bank on your behalf. Otherwise I would recommend that you aim to put down a minimum of 15% deposit and you will be able to access a much wider choice of mortgage lenders.
