Getting A Good Mortgage Deal

What Is a First-Time Buyer?

A first-time buyer is someone who is purchasing a house for the very first time and doesn’t already own (or hasn’t previously owned) property before. Couples qualify as first-time buyers, so long as neither person owns (or has owned) a house in the past.


If you’re buying your first house and own (or have owned) commercial property such as a shop, bar or restaurant, you still qualify as a first-time buyer, provided that the commercial property has never had living quarters attached to it. The realm of first-time buyers refers only to residential properties.
Who isn’t a first-time buyer? If you’re buying your first house but you’ve inherited a house or someone has bought a house for you, you don’t qualify as a first-time buyer, even if you’ve never technically bought a house before. You also lose first-time buyer eligibility if you’re planning to rent out the house you’re buying (what’s known as buy-to-let).


Getting a mortgage (particularly your first mortgage) is a huge financial decision that requires careful thought, research and number-crunching. It’ll have a huge impact on your financial future, which is why it’s important to seek expert advice before making a decision. Green Mortgage Services are Cheshire mortgage brokers who can guide you through the entire process and find the first-time buyers mortgage that’s right for you.
