Do not apply for many loans or credit cards at the same time

Credit agencies view this behaviour as a red flag because it makes you look like you are desperate for money.

Your credit score may well be downgraded as a result.

First time buyer mortgage

First time buyer mortgages are those which are constructed to appeal particularly to those buying homes for the first time. Some lenders provide incentives such as cashback – a cash lump sum when you've just moved in is perhaps more likely to be attractive to a first time buyer who might have less property etc. than a home mover who has much of the fixtures and fittings to put in place in their new home already bought over the years.

Fixed term mortgages are another example of a device which can be very marketable towards first time buyers. They take these out to have the security of knowing exactly how much they'll need each month to make their repayments. They have to remember to organise a new fixed term when the initial one expires to avoid going on a lender's standard variable rate, but the incentive of saving cash through organising this, perhaps by selecting a new mortgage provider, is arguably likely to appeal as well.


Hackney is a north east London Borough which has residential areas clustered around smaller centres with local shops. It has a diverse community and great open spaces such as Victoria Park. The borough contains areas such as Hackney Wick, Hackney Marshes, Hackney Central, Dalston, Upper and Lower Clapton, Stamford Hill, Stoke Newington and Homerton.

The Hackney Empire, a restored theatre from 1901 with ornate decor, hosts a variety of different performances and is very popular. Sutton House, a 16th century Grade II listed building in Homerton, is well worth a visit and its exhibits show how the house has developed and changed in usage over the last 500 years.

Hackney Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

If you're buying, getting a structural assessment (Building Survey) of your property in Hackney from a RICS Surveyor is key and can save you £1,000s by highlighting defects that can be shared or negotiated with the seller. 

All too often buyers choose to not get a Building Survey thinking that their Mortgage Valuation will cover them for this. Sadly the mortgage valuation doesn't highlight structural defects or risks.

Once you realise this and then choose to get a Building Survey you may find that you are pushed to get this done in time for exchange of contracts because you have waited so long. This is especially annoying as your conveyancing solicitor needs some of the information from the survey to complete your legal work.

The best advice for fast conveyancing in Hackney is to book your Building Survey at the same time as you instruct your conveyancing solicitor

Surveyors are in high demand at the moment and bookings can often take 7 to 10 days and then the report 3 to 5 days after that so the sooner you book, the quicker you'll know if there are any defects with you property - plus you'll be set for a fast conveyancing completion!
