Re: Mortgage deposit %

offer to pledge assets like a UK pension. Discuss it with the smaller, local lenders.

I did 5% cash deposit and 15% pledged for my first house.
They won't accept a UK pension unless your over 55 as it can't be converted to cash, only 25% can be taken as cash. The early retirement age just changed this year for people who are 50 now, there will be a few people aged 52-54 that can also draw now.
