Only withdraw cash from your credit card in an emergency

If you withdraw cash from your credit card the action goes on your credit report and repayments tend to be very pricey.

Lenders will see this on your report and, unfortunately, may see this as you managing your money poorly. So only do it in an emergency!

Capped Mortgage

A capped mortgage is a type of variable rate mortgage with a difference – there is a maximum, or a cap, on how much the interest rate can increase. Your repayments are free to fall, but they can only increase so much.

The cap does tend to be rather high. This means you need to make sure you can still afford your maximum increase if it were to hit that level. There is usually a fixed time period at which the cap operates, and the fee for leaving before this period early is over is usually rather large.


Abbey Wood is an area of South East London situated 13 miles east of Waterloo, 7 miles north west of Dartford and just south of the River Thames. Despite its station being in Zone 4, Abbey Wood is in the Historic County of Kent, but it now is considered to be in Greater London. This area takes its name from Lesnes Abbey Wood, an ancient woodland in southeast London.

The former Lesnes Abbey which used to stand within Lesnes Abbey Wood is now a ruin site. The Abbey’s foundations were lay in 1178 and it closed in 1525. The only burial at the Abbey is of Richard de Luci, who was the founder.

Abbey Wood Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Book your home buyers survey as soon as you have your offer accepted.

Getting a RICS home buyers survey is always recommended because you get an expert opinion on whether a property you want to buy has any defects which may give you grounds to bargain for a lower price with a vendor or even pull out.

Once you have instructed a RICS surveyor, it may take perhaps up to 10 days before they can carry out their inspection and then they may take five working days (or more) to get the report back to you. You should therefore keep delays to a minimum by booking your survey as soon as possible.
