Poll: Are mortgage lenders working hard enough to attract first-time buyers?
Halifax launched its £1,000 cashback for first-time buyers and home movers this week and Accord also offered its low 'upfront cost' range, so this week's poll asks if mortgage lenders doing enough to help novice buyers swing on to the ladder?

 

 

On 22 November 2017, chancellor Philip Hammond unveiled a sweetener for first-time buyers by announcing stamp duty would be cut for properties up to £300,000, which has already saved 69,000 first-timers an average of £5,000.

Alongside the fact mortgage lenders have clearly been targeting this market with criteria sweeteners this year and rates and affordability are at their lowest ever, is it also easier than ever to place cases?

 

Vote now in this week’s poll.

 

Is lender competition creating better first-time buyer mortgages?
