What is a NatWest Agreement in Principle?

An Agreement in Principle (AIP) is when a lender gives you an indication of how much they specifically will be willing to lend to you without harming your credit score. It isn’t a guarantee that they will lend to you, however it will give you a rough estimate specific to NatWest – or with whichever lender you choose to check with.

What size mortgage deposit will I need with NatWest?

NatWest offer mortgages with a minimum 5% deposit – sometimes referred to as a 95% mortgage. With that mind though, depending on your circumstances, you may need to have a 10% deposit (90% mortgage).

For example, if you wanted to buy a £200,000 property, a 5% deposit would be £10,000 and a 10% deposit would £20,000.

Although it can be tricky to save up such a large amount, putting down a larger deposit can have its advantages. This is because it can make more mortgage products available to you that have lower interest rates. This could then lower your monthly repayments.
