How much of a deposit does a first-time buyer have to put down?

Under Central Bank rules introduced in February 2015, first-time buyers can borrow up to 90 per cent of the value of a property. This means that they will need to have saved at least 10 per cent of the purchase price of their new home.

Both applicants must be first-time buyers for a joint mortgage to be a First Time Buyer mortgage.
