Having difficulty making repayments and on time? Speak to the lenders concerned

You may be in a situation where you are finding it difficult to make the repayments specified on the debt you've taken on. If so, you should get in touch with the companies you owe the money to as they might accept lesser payments from you or give you a grace period (an extension on the deadline by which you must have made a repayment).

Remember that defaulting on payments or making payments late lowers your credit score. If you can come to an arrangement with your creditors, your credit score is much less likely to be harmed.

Interest-only Mortgage

The basic premise of an interest-only mortgage is that your monthly payments purely cover the cost of servicing the interest on the loan and are not put towards paying down the capital itself.

To pay down the capital, the mortgagor is obliged to save money in another investment vehicle which hopefully generates sufficient cash by the end of the mortgage term to pay off the capital – this is not guaranteed.

Only commercial property buyers such as buy to let investors can access interest-only mortgages at the present time; the higher risk profile of these mortgages is thought to be too dangerous for residential buyers to be involved with.

Derby Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Consider booking your searches as soon as you have an offer accepted

If you're buying a property with a mortgage, your lender will normally expect you to book four standard property searches (local authority, environmental, chancel indemnity and drainage) and you are advised to get searches anyway so you have as much information on your property as possible.

Although you could choose to delay getting your searches to space out your conveyancing-related payments, you are more likely to save time on your conveyancing if you do not.

Your solicitor needs the information detailed in the searches as part of their extensive checks on the property you're looking to buy. As soon as they have this, the quicker they can carry these out and the sooner you'll be able to exchange contracts with the vendor, all going well.

Should you or the vendor choose to pull out of the sale for any reason, the searches can be sold on to any other prospective buyer of the property in question.
