Since the financial crisis in 2008 lenders have been reluctant to offer high loan-to-value mortgages which has resulted in many of us being unable to afford our dream homes or take our first step onto the property ladder.
For first-time buyers, it has become incredibly hard to take that important first step onto the property ladder. According to research by Halifax, the average house deposit has increased by a staggering 71% from £19,364 in 2008 to £33,127 in 2018.
I recall clearly as the credit crunch came to a welcome close, buy to let transactions were a welcome kick start for many lenders, brokers and of course their new owners! The lending and purchases were straightforward deals for adviser and customer alike.
