Don't take up more than half of the credit available to you

As a general rule, you should not take up more than half the credit available to you on, say, a credit card because it will negatively impact your credit score.

When you take up more than 50% of the credit offered to you, lenders start to view you as overextended and therefore more likely to default on a debt repayment or to make a payment late in future. They therefore downgrade your credit score accordingly, making any future potential borrowing more expensive or worse, any future applications for credit less likely to be successful.
Help to Buy Mortgage
A Help to Buy mortgage is required to cover the rest of the purchase price of a New Build you're looking to buy within the scheme which involves you having to produce a minimum 5% deposit and for which the Government provides an equity loan (repayable) of up to 20% (up to 40% for London Help to Buy) of the purchase price of the property.

The Help to Buy mortgage you require is therefore likely to be for a maximum loan to value (LTV) of 75% (55% for London Help to Buy) of the purchase price of the property. This is a lower LTV ratio than for standard mortgages, leaving you less exposed.

Ely Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Let your mortgage lender know if you are needing to work to a deadline.

  • If you are using a mortgage to purchase your home in Ely and want to get completed quickly, your mortgage lender should be able to advise you on whether or not this is possible. This could influence your mortgage lender and the mortgage product itself.
  • Taking a mortgage out can be a protracted process, especially since the Mortgage Market Review introduced greater restrictions, so it is important to get your valuation completed as soon as you can. 
  • This can be ordered via your bank or mortgage adviser and it can take around 2 weeks to receive the valuation. 
  • Please note the mortgage valuation and a building survey are two different things.
