Mortgage Broker Tip 

Don't use unauthorised overdraft facilities

If you've set up an authorised overdraft facility with a bank, don't exceed your limit. Fees and interest charged on unauthorised overdrafts are generally extortionate and can damage your credit rating.

You should either restrict your outgoings to keep within your limit or, if you have to, find a cheaper source of finance, such as a loan.
Top Mortgage Lenders 

Family Offset Mortgage

These mortgages, which are a type of offset mortgage, typically involve family members placing their savings into an account linked the mortgagor's mortgage, and their savings interest is deducted from the mortgage interest, making the mortgage cheaper.

The lender often requires that the savings are 'locked in' for some considerable time (can be many years) until, for example, 75% of the mortgage is paid off. During this time, the family members cannot use the savings interest as income at all – it is tied in to being deducted from the mortgage.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

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

  • If you are using a mortgage to purchase your home in Wakefield and want to get completed quickly, your mortgage lender should be able to advise you on whether or not this is possible. This could influence your mortgage lender and the mortgage product itself.
  • Taking a mortgage out can be a protracted process, especially since the Mortgage Market Review introduced greater restrictions, so it is important to get your valuation completed as soon as you can. 
  • This can be ordered via your bank or mortgage adviser and it can take around 2 weeks to receive the valuation. 
  • Please note the mortgage valuation and a building survey are two different things.
