Flats and maisonettes will remain at the current maximum LTV of 85 per cent.
Barclays has also increased its LTV cap on shared ownership loans from 85 per cent to 95 per cent on amounts up to £500,000.
The lender is also raising its cap on like-for-like shared ownership remortgage applications from 85 per cent to 90 per cent LTV.
Barclays is also removing its £10,000 minimum annual bonus threshold for residential and buy-to-let loans.
The lender will now accept 50 per cent of applicants’ sustainable annual bonus for affordability.
Legal & General Mortgage Club new build manager Craig Hall says: “This news provides further choice to customers that are seeking to purchase a new build house with a larger deposit without requiring the support of the Help to Buy scheme.”
