A helping hand

Nationwide launched an assistance program this week for borrowers looking to stretch the amount they could borrow named ‘Helping Hand’.

Specifically designed for first-time buyers (which they classify as not owning a property in the last 3 years), subject to certain criteria, they will lend clients up to 5.5 x their joint salaries when purchasing with a deposit as little as 10%.

The scheme is not available for the self-employed but for one or two employed applicants looking forward to future salary increases.

This is a real help especially with prices increasing. Nationwide aren’t the only lender offering up to 5.5 x salary so if you would like to establish your position, please get in touch.
