Set up payment reminders

Your credit score is highly sensitive to whether you make your credit card payments on time. Some lenders offer payment reminders through their online portals that can send you an email or text message reminding you when a payment is due.

You might also want to consider enrolling in automatic payments through your credit card and loan providers to have payments automatically debited from your bank account. Be aware however that only the minimum required payment on your credit cards might be made – in the longer term, you should always be careful to manage your finances well.

Offset Mortgage

Offset mortgages link up your savings to your mortgage so you only pay interest on the mortgage loan on the debt which exceeds your savings balance. You therefore benefit by being charged less interest than normal so you can look to pay off your mortgage sooner than normal and save possibly thousands of pounds in interest repayments.

Interest rates are often higher than normal for these products and you won't be able to spend the interest you earn on your linked savings.

Basildon Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Getting financial help towards your deposit from a family member?

To save yourself delays in the conveyancing process further down the line:

1 The family member must decide whether it's a gift or a loan.
2 If it's a gift, you must ensure that the person gifting fills out a gifted deposit letter with the correct information.

The correct information must be set down and the letter must be signed by witnesses. The giver will also have to provide ID and proof of funds. If the giver isn't a family member, you must tell your mortgage lender as this can sometimes cause issues.

For further information about these matters, including a useful template, please click on Gifted Deposit Letter
