New to credit and want to increase your score? Get a credit card – and use it wisely

If you haven't had credit before, you won't have a very high credit score. You can help this by taking out a credit card and paying out a small amount on it each month (such as a subscription to Netflix). Ensure you set up a direct debit to repay the full amount each month so you don't get involved with having to repay the money subject to a large APR.

You don't have to ever use the card to take out money – this is very expensive and will actually hurt your credit score – and each time you make a repayment, your credit score will incrementally improve.

Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor Mortgage

A person may wish to buy a home but their salary multiples may mean that they can't get a sufficiently large mortgage to do so. One strategy they can use is to make a joint application for a mortgage, involving someone who can get a mortgage, and that other person then does not appear on the legal title. A joint borrower sole proprietor mortgage is the term for the mortgage the pair apply for.

There are legal risks involved in this strategy and at the very least, both participants are well advised to draw up a deed of trust to protect their individual interests.

Berkshire Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Communicate using the fastest and most efficient methods.

This way unnecessary delays are avoided. It would be awful if you were ready to exchange on your property in Berkshire but couldn't go ahead as some documents were still outstanding in the post.

Modern society allows us to contact each other with the touch of a button, be it via email or telephone. If you have a question, it is often quicker to call. If you need to send some documents, an email with scanned attachments can be faster than the post.

If you are using the post, always use the most rapid options and make sure it is recorded or you could risk losing important, essential documents. The nominal extra cost is utterly worth it. It's important to note that a lost or even delayed document can set you back 2-3 weeks, and time is precious in a home move.
