Use payment reminders where possible if they help you

Many lenders offer payment reminders (using e.g. text messages and emails) to tell you when a payment date is approaching. These can help you to coordinate making the correct payments on time.

If the lenders offer an automatic payment facility, this may also be worth using although you should check whether the facility only makes the minimum payment as larger payments are the best way to pay down a debt more quickly!

Tracker Mortgage

Tracker mortgages are variable rate mortgages normally pitched at a few percentage points above the Bank of England base rate. Depending on the product, the tracking may be set for a fixed time period.

You might benefit over a fixed rate mortgage initially in terms of a cheaper interest rate although you would be betting on the rate not rising too much, in which case you would have to fork out more in repayment costs. For this reason, tracker mortgages might suit those with more room to manoeuvre financially and with a higher risk profile.

If there is a fixed tracking period, it is highly likely that if you want to leave before this period has expired that you'll have to pay a substantial early repayment charge.

Crawley Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

If you're buying, getting a structural assessment (Building Survey) of your property in Crawley from a RICS Surveyor is key and can save you £1,000s by highlighting defects that can be shared or negotiated with the seller. 

All too often buyers choose to not get a Building Survey thinking that their Mortgage Valuation will cover them for this. Sadly the mortgage valuation doesn't highlight structural defects or risks.

Once you realise this and then choose to get a Building Survey you may find that you are pushed to get this done in time for exchange of contracts because you have waited so long. This is especially annoying as your conveyancing solicitor needs some of the information from the survey to complete your legal work.

The best advice for fast conveyancing in Crawley is to book your Building Survey at the same time as you instruct your conveyancing solicitor

Surveyors are in high demand at the moment and bookings can often take 7 to 10 days and then the report 3 to 5 days after that so the sooner you book, the quicker you'll know if there are any defects with you property - plus you'll be set for a fast conveyancing completion!
