How to get a mortgage - or remortgage - in Forest Gate


Forest Gate is an area of Newham Borough, 7 miles north-east of the capital's centre. It lies between Stratford to its west and Manor Park to its east and Westfield shopping mall is 1.5 miles away as is the Olympic Park of 2012 fame. You can learn to dance Swing at Swing Patrol (Hampton Road) or, if you're really brave, take a tumble down the ArcelorMittal Orbit slide in the Olympic Park mentioned in Stratford.

The mortgage application process has 4 stages regardless of which mortgage lender you use:

  • Approval in principal (AIP)
  • Mortgage in principal (MIP)
  • Mortgage valuation
  • Mortgage Offer

Mortgage Broker Tip  

Get on the electoral roll – you're unlikely to get credit if not

Being on the electoral roll will not only improve your credit score but more importantly is normally necessary to be granted credit at all.

If you're not on the roll, a credit agency's score might indicate that your credit rating is excellent, but in practice, you won't normally be granted credit if you apply because of fraud scoring, Lenders invariably use the electoral roll to check IDs and addresses.

Repayment Mortgage

All residential mortgages are repayment mortgages as opposed to interest-only mortgages. The mortgagor, typically over a 25-year time period, makes regular monthly payments which involve a portion being made to pay off the interest on the loan and a portion used to pay off some of the capital.

The mortgagor, as time progresses, pays off an increasing amount of the capital. At the end of the term, assuming all repayments are made, the loan is fully paid off. Repayment mortgages have the advantage that you are developing a larger equity stake each month and this can make it easier to get a cheaper mortgage deal in the future.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

The trick is to order your property searches as soon as you instruct.

Searches can take some time to get back, namely the searches from the local authority. So you may find yourself all ready to exchange but not able to proceed because you are waiting for your searches to get back.

Being organised and booking your searches early can mean you get the essential information you need back to you and your solicitor as early as possible. 

Thereby you can make a fully informed, good decision about whether to proceed with your purchase in Forest Gate or not.
