What is a 65% LTV mortgage?

Loan to value (LTV) is the ratio between the loan you take out and the value of the property. 

A 65% LTV mortgage lets you borrow 65% of the price of the property. 

You’ll pay the other 35% as a deposit before you start paying your mortgage.

If you’re remortgaging onto a 65% LTV mortgage, the 35% could be the equity in your home if:

The higher the LTV, the more you’ll pay in interest. This is because the more you borrow the higher the risk to the lender.
