Bishop Auckland is a quaint market town situated 30 miles south of Newcastle upon Tyne and 25 miles north west of Middlesbrough.

  • Approval in principal (AIP)
  • Mortgage in principal (MIP)

Mortgage Broker Tip 

Moving regularly can decrease your credit score

Frequent changes of address are likely to result is your credit score decreasing. It can affect your credit rating if you haven’t been registered at one address for an extended period of time.

Lenders favour stability over constant changes of address as inconsistency increases your risk profile. You will often be asked “Have you lived at this address for longer than 3 years?” so they can judge the likelihood of you making repayments regularly.

Offset Mortgage

Offset mortgages let you link your savings with your mortgage. In doing so, you will only pay interest on the value of your mortgage that surpasses that of your savings. Interest rates are often slightly higher for offset mortgages, but the benefits include being able to reduce your monthly payments or shorten the period of time you are paying back your mortgage.

It is commonly thought that offset mortgages are restrictive and expensive but you can get at your money quickly, shorten your mortgage significantly and you don’t have to have all your savings in one account.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

Buying a leasehold property? Request your vendor to get their management information pack when your offer is accepted.

Your solicitor needs to examine the leasehold management information very carefully as it deals with matters like service charges and how well the freehold has been run. 

Very frequently the freeholder or managing agent may take weeks to compile and return the material which may form the basis of enquiries from your solicitor which in turn need to be answered.
