I am short of a 10% deposit on my flat purchase in Whaley Bridge , but I am anxious proceed. What can I do?
One option is to try and agree a smaller deposit. Many sellers will agree to a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
