Depending on your personal circumstances, some lenders may let you borrow 5 times your salary.


Lenders usually cap the amount they lend at 5.5 times your salary, so it’s unlikely you’ll be able to borrow more than this.

Remortgage Deals with a 5% Deposit

In the current lending climate, few lenders can offer a remortgage at up to 95% of Loan to Value (LTV).

Help to Buy has meant that more first time buyers can borrow as high as 95% of the value of their property, but securing a remortgage of this value is more specialist - with the main barrier being the risk analysis criteria that each lender must consider.

Business finance broker does work with niche lenders who can offer high LTV ratios, and who will consider a remortgage application leaving 5% equity in your property. To secure a 95% remortgage, it is vital to work with an experienced broker who can liaise with the right lenders.

How Can I Remortgage my Property at a 95% Loan to Value?

When remortgaging, the biggest challenge is always ensuring you get a rate that is lower than the one you are currently paying. If you have a mortgage on a competitive rate, deciding to remortgage might mean being offered interest charges at higher than they are now.

Typically, a residential mortgage will have a fixed interest period, but then after this initial time, reverts to the lenders Standard Variable Rate (SRV).

SRVs can range from 3-5% with most lenders, and upwards of 6% in some cases.

Remortgage rates with LTVs of 95% are around 5% plus on the current averages, which means there is a greater chance you won't find a mainstream lender who can remortgage at lower than your current rates.

To find a competitive interest rate on a high LTV remortgage, you can:

  • Look at paying some of the existing mortgage balance off, to reduce your remortgage application to 90% LTV; and thus, be able to apply to more lenders and secure better mortgage rates.
  • Work with an experienced broker to identify lenders who can offer 90%+ remortgages at around 3.5% interest rates (currently the best deals on the market).
  • Ensure you only apply to lenders who will remortgage at a higher LTV, and compare the eligibility criteria to ensure you don't spend time on an application that won't be accepted.

If you're struggling to find a lender who fits your needs, the Revolution team is always on hand to help!

What Remortgage Rates Should I Expect to Pay on a 95% LTV?

Remortgage rates change daily; and published rates may not be offered, depending on multiple other criteria.

Lenders will consider:

  • Your equity in the property.
  • The reason(s) for the remortgage.
  • Your credit score and credit history.
  • Other loans and obligations.
  • Income and affordability.
