Try not to use all of the possible credit available to you

To credit agencies, a person who has taken up all available credit can look overextended financially.

This can negatively affect a credit rating as the person will be regarded as statistically more likely to miss payments or make them late.

Capped Rate Mortgage

These are a type of variable rate mortgage, based on a lender's standard variable rate (SVR), but one where the rate cannot become higher than an agreed level (and therefore the repayments more expensive).

You can gain from these types of mortgages if the lender's SVR comes down, however you need to be sure that you have enough finance to make monthly repayments as high as the level of the cap, which may itself be set quite high. You often find also that the rate itself is generally higher than for other variable and fixed rate mortgages.

Grove Park Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Book your mortgage valuation as soon as you've had your offer accepted

If you're buying with a mortgage, you won't be able to complete unless the funds have come through to your solicitor. You have to apply for a mortgage, be accepted/get a mortgage in principle but then, once you've had an offer accepted, your mortgage lender has to value the property and only after this, assuming all goes to plan, do you get your mortgage offer with funds in readiness.

You can therefore minimise lost time by booking your mortgage valuation on the day you have an offer accepted. It may take around a week or so for the valuation survey to take place, then you have to allow for a few days to elapse before you have your offer. If you delay, the whole process slows down. 

Additionally, if there's any issues, like your lender undervaluing your property or making you a conditional offer, there might be further delays.
