Be wary of 'quick fix' credit improvement organisations

Some companies offer to fix your credit score in little or no time. You should be extremely suspicious of spending any money on these as the hard truth is that a credit score cannot normally be fixed quickly.

Anything that one of these companies claim to be able to do you can do yourself. If there's a mistake on your report, you yourself can work to fix it by communicating with the agency with appropriate evidence. You don't have to pay a company a fortune to do it for you. And if you've got credit problems, these can be fixed, by you, over time.

Fixed Rate Mortgage

A fixed rate mortgage is one where the interest charged on your monthly repayments is fixed for a particular set period; 2, 3, 5 and 10 years are the most common. You benefit by knowing exactly how much money you'll have to have put aside each month without having to worry about what is happening in the capital markets and whether the Bank of England base rate will rise (thus making your repayments more expensive).

When the set period comes to an end, your mortgage then becomes subject to the bank's standard variable rate (SVR) which means that it then moves in line with an index, which is most commonly the Bank of England's interest rate, referred to above. You can then opt either to stay on the SVR or to take out a new fixed rate mortgage, either with the same provider or with a new one.

Interest rates charged on fixed rate mortgages are often initially higher than for those chargeable under the SVR, however the repayment sum cannot rise higher meaning there's more peace of mind. You should be wary, however, of leaving a fixed rate mortgage before the fixed period has finished, because you'll normally have to pay a hefty early repayment charge to do so.


East London is part of London and includes the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Greenwich, Hackney, Havering, Havering, Lewisham, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

It contains the 'East End' which consists of areas which are closer to the City of London. It has two counties on its borders, Essex and Hertfordshire. It is bounded by the River Thames to the south.

The East End has seen many transitions in its population and has been the main first place of settlement for many immigrants, including the Hugenots in the 17th century, East European Jews at the end of the 19th century and Bangladeshis and many other people from the Indian subcontinent in more recent years. It was once the headquarters of the Suffragette movement.

It contains a university, the University of East London, the Olympic Stadium of London's 2014 games, football teams such as West Ham United and a huge shopping mall in Stratford - Westfield Stratford.

East London Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Selling? 'No chain' means less chances for delays..

If an estate agent tells you that, regarding a potential buyer, there is 'no chain', it means that that buyer doesn't have to sell another property in order to buy yours.

The more 'links' there are in a chain, inevitably there are more chances for delays as there are more people who have to coordinate any purchase with a balancing sale.
