Compare Cumberland Building Society Mortgages
Cumberland Building Society’s mortgages are designed to meet the needs of many different types of borrowers. Which will work best for you will depend on what you need the money for and your own financial circumstances.
First Time Buyer mortgage
Raising a deposit is often difficult for first time buyers, making it tough to get onto the property ladder. Cumberland Building Society offer mortgages of up to 85% of a property’s value as well as discounted rates on some of their mortgages, helping to make things a little easier for first time buyers.
Buy to Let mortgage
Cumberland Building Society offer two types of buy to let mortgages. These are aimed at both professional landlords (those with 4 or more buy to let properties) and non-professional landlords (with 3 or fewer buy to lets). They offer mortgages of up to 60% of a property’s value to non-professional landlords and more bespoke deals for professional landlords.
Remortgaging with Cumberland Building Society
Thinking of moving your mortgage to Cumberland? You may be able to get a better deal or borrow more by remortgaging, allowing you to reduce your monthly repayments or end up with a lump sum left over once your old mortgage is paid off.
Second charge mortgage
If you need to raise extra funds, for example for home improvements, remortgaging isn’t your only option.
If you have a good deal on your current mortgage, it can be cheaper to take out a second secured loan, separate to your existing borrowing. This is commonly called a second charge mortgage and can allow you to take your borrowing up to as much as 90% of your home’s value.
Loan to value ratio
Curious how much you might be able to borrow? One of the determining factors is likely to be your loan to value (LTV) ratio.
This shows what percentage of your property’s market value you are aiming to borrow.
So, if you need a mortgage on a house worth £100,000 and want to borrow £50,000, your LTV would be 50%.
Increase your borrowing by another £25,000 with a second charge mortgage or through remortgaging and your LTV will increase to 75%.
Most lenders will be inclined to offer you lower interest rates on mortgages with a lower LTV.
