Checked one score? Check all 3!

Remember that in the UK there are 3 main credit reference agencies: Experian, Equifax and CallCredit. All 3 use different methods to produce a credit score and one or all may be consulted by a lender about your credit-worthiness.

It therefore makes more sense to check your score – and file – for all 3 so you have a complete picture of how your profile is viewed and can take any necessary steps to keep your credit score as high as you can.

Repayment Mortgage

You have to take out a repayment mortgage if you are a residential home buyer. You are granted a mortgage loan normally conditional on your saving a deposit of a minimum of 10% of the purchase price (in certain circumstances a lower percentage or even no deposit may be acceptable) and you commit to making regular monthly repayments over an agreed term, frequently 25 years, during which you pay back the loan.

For each payment you make, a portion of the money goes toward paying the interest on the loan and the rest goes towards paying down the capital. You accumulate more of the underlying capital over time so the interest element becomes less and the portion devoted to paying off the principal increases.

The biggest advantage of a repayment mortgage is that as long as you make all the payments, you can rest assured that at the end of the term you'll own the full equity of your property. This is not guaranteed to be the case with an interest-only mortgage; these mortgages are now only open to commercial customers.


Coventry is a city and borough in Central England in the West Midlands. Landmarks include Baginton Roman Fort, St Mary's Guildhall and its three cathedrals. St Mary's, the first cathedral, is a monastic building which is predominantly in ruins. The second and th‏ird are both called St Michael's; the first of these is a 14th century Gothic church which was reduced to a shell - and kept as a monument - by bombing in the Second World War, the other replaced the first. The city has two universities, Coventry University and the University of Warwick.

Coventry Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

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.
