How to get a mortgage - or remortgage - in Colchester


Colchester is a town and the largest settlement in Colchester Borough in Essex and is 51 miles nort-east of London. It has many historical associations - it is said to be the oldest town in Britain - and used to be England's capital city in Roman times (Camulodunum). It is well-equipped in terms of shopping, cultural diversions and open spaces.

One diversion is Colchester Castle in Castle Park - it's a fine example of a complete Norman Castle. The Mercury Theatre in Balkerne Gate has two auditoria and hosts a number of theatrical productions by highly talented orchestrators. Castle Park itself is an excellent open space and 'a green oasis in the town centre'!

The mortgage application process has 4 stages regardless of which mortgage lender you use:

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

Mortgage Broker Tip  

Check your credit report for any issues

Getting a recent credit report will show you how your credit worthiness is viewed by lending companies. This is particularly worthwhile if you haven't already done so and have been turned down for credit.

Depending on what you find on your file, you can take action to improve your credit, principally by ensuring you make timely repayments on existing credit you have taken out. Every application for credit you make which is turned down will in turn negatively impact your credit score.

Repayment Mortgage

Residential home buyers take out repayment mortgages, which involve making monthly repayments where part of the payment goes towards paying for the interest on the loan and part goes towards paying down the capital. At the end of the term, normally 25 years, assuming all payments are made correctly, the mortgage is fully paid back so the ex-mortgagor then holds the full equity of the property involved.

The act of developing more equity over time has the advantage that any future remortgaging should be cheaper in future and applications more likely to be successful.

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.
