Reduce any debt you are in

Seems obvious of course – and always easier said than done – but this will do much more for you than simply improving your credit score.

Stop using credit cards, find out all the accounts you have and determine exactly what you owe on each one and what you're being charged in terms of interest etc. Create a payment plane which directs your finances towards repaying debt on the highest interest accounts but always covering all your minimum payments.

No Deposit Mortgage

No deposit mortgages enable you to get a 100% loan to value ratio on your mortgage, i.e. the lender grants you a mortgage which covers the seller's full purchase price with no deposit required from you.

These mortgages normally work by requiring an associate of yours (often a family member) to leave some money in an account for a set period of time with the account being controlled during that time by the lender. If you default on your repayments, the lender has recourse to the money in the linked account, which the associate risks losing. Another method is requiring an associate to put up their house as security in case you default.

Interest rates on these products are likely to be higher than normal. Click on No Deposit Mortgages to find out more.

Barking Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Book your mortgage valuation as soon as you've had your offer accepted

If you're buying with a mortgage, you won't be able to complete unless the funds have come through to your solicitor. You have to apply for a mortgage, be accepted/get a mortgage in principle but then, once you've had an offer accepted, your mortgage lender has to value the property and only after this, assuming all goes to plan, do you get your mortgage offer with funds in readiness.

You can therefore minimise lost time by booking your mortgage valuation on the day you have an offer accepted. It may take around a week or so for the valuation survey to take place, then you have to allow for a few days to elapse before you have your offer. If you delay, the whole process slows down. 

Additionally, if there's any issues, like your lender undervaluing your property or making you a conditional offer, there might be further delays.
