How it works

The Home Builders Federation and its members have joined together to create a housebuilder owned insurance scheme, with insurance provided by Gallagher Re. This means that they offer competitively priced mortgages for low deposit new build homes supporting first and second hand market buyers to own their homes.

Upon completion of buying your new home which is offered as part of the Deposit Unlock scheme, the housebuilder pays a percentage of the purchase price into an insurance policy.

How it works

This new scheme protects the lender from a proportional of potential loss in the event of a default in payment. Customers only need to put down a 5% deposit and can purchase a property up to £833,250* with no restrictions on location, subject to lender’s approval. Deposit Unlock is currently available with participating bank lenders including Nationwide and Newcastle Building Society**.
