Don't make multiple applications for credit

If you apply for lots of credit then every company you apply to will check your credit file. This could indicate that you are desperate for money and will have an impact on your credit score. Banks and building societies even check your credit score when you open a bank account.

Don’t worry, checking your credit score through Experian, Equifax or CallCredit will not affect your credit score.

95% mortgages

As a rule, 95% mortgages are those which offer a 95% loan to value ratio (LVR) i.e. a lender grants you a loan of 95% of the purchase price of the house you're looking to buy.

Because the standard deposit is 10%, 95% is clearly a larger LTV than normal and you can expect to pay higher interest rates than normal on your mortgage.

You should bear in mind also that if house prices decline just 6%, you will technically be in negative equity; this is more acceptable if you're intending to stay put for a number of years (you might 'ride out' the price fall until prices rise again) but if you're intending to move again in the shorter term, you face selling your house for a lower price than you bought it for.

Brent 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.
