Mortgage Broker Tip 

Lower your credit utilisation ratio

The credit utilisation ratio is how much credit you've taken up as a portion of how much credit you've been offered. Your credit score will generally rise the lower this ratio is. As a general rule, you should always keep the ratio below 50% overall and considerably lower if possible.

If you have more than one credit card you should also be aware of the utilisation ratio overall and per card, because credit reference agencies take all the measure into account.

Capped Rate Mortgage

Capped rate mortgages are variable rate mortgages with an agreed cap on how high the rate – and therefore your repayments – can rise.

The rate can fall, meaning your payments become cheaper, and cannot rise above a certain agreed level, making it easy for you to budget and more predictable.

You should be very clear about whether you can afford to make the repayments at the level of the cap, which might be set quite high and the interest rates offered may be less competitive than for other variable and fixed rate mortgages.

Capped rate mortgages may also be for a particular fixed time period and if they are, you may have to pay a large sum if you choose to leave early.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

For fast conveyancing in Gillingham, the trick is to choose the right solicitor from the outset.

  • Whilst this may seem like an obvious one, it's not just the standard of reviews that means a solicitor is good. It is also the volume of work. 
  • You need someone who values high communication levels and will work with your best interests in mind at all times. If a solicitor is overworked, your case may get overlooked, which can increase the chance of delays and poor prioritisation of clients. 
  • At SAM Conveyancing we aim for completion within 6-8 weeks. For us, we make sure your deadline is as achievable as possible.
