Halifax for Intermediaries has lowered the minimum deposit borrowers require to qualify for its new-build mortgages.
The bank expects a minimum deposit of 15 per cent to access its new-build flat and new-build house mortgages rather than a 20 per cent deposit. As part of the improvement, Halifax has also introduced £500 cash back for its specific new build rates.
Lloyds Banking Group has committed to lend £10 billion to first-time buyers this year and these changes will help it meets the target.
