Mortgage Broker Tip 

Check your credit file after receiving any rejection for a credit application

If you don't find out why you've been rejected by checking your credit file and make further applications, each application worsens your credit score in turn.

If you discover an error, you might be able to get successive searches wiped but you'll have to negotiate with the relevant agency and lenders and success isn't guaranteed.

Tracker Mortgage

Tracker mortgages are in the wider class of variable rate mortgages and normally, the rate is a few percentage points above the prevailing Bank of England base rate. There is often a fixed term during which the arrangement operates, which is something in common with fixed rate mortgages.

The fixed term carries with it an early repayment charge if you choose to leave before it is ended. The interest charged at the outset is normally cheaper than for a fixed rate mortgage, however you are taking the risk that the rate might rise sharply, increasing the cost of your repayments in the same way. They therefore might not be attuned to buyers who have limited finances who cannot accommodate a sudden rate rise.

When a tracker mortgage has a lifetime – or length of the mortgage – term, there won't be an early repayment charge for leaving, but the risk of rates rising and making repayments very expensive remains.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

Let your mortgage lender know if you are needing to work to a deadline.

If you need to get moving quickly and are using a mortgage to purchase your home in Leicester, you need to speak to your mortgage lender for advice on whether this deadline is achievable. This could actually even influence your choice of mortgage lender and mortgage product itself!

It is so important to get your mortgage valuation booked in as soon as possible. It can take up to 2 weeks to receive the valuation and you do not want to be stuck in a position where you are ready to exchange but cannot proceed because you have no valuation in as yet.
