Keep credit usage low

Lenders always look at how much credit is available to you as well as your outstanding balances.

If the amount of available credit you can access is low, lenders can take the view that you aren't looking after your finances successfully. You should always try to keep credit balances below 50% of the total credit available to you.

No Deposit Mortgage

No deposit mortgages are designed such that the applicant gets a 100% loan to value (LTV) from the lender without having to provide the normal 10% deposit.

The applicant must, however, have an associate (most often a family member) who provides security for the mortgage loan normally by either agreeing to leave a sum of money in a linked account for a set period of time (the lender controls the account during that time period) or by putting up their own house as collateral.

If the mortgage holder defaults on repayments, the lender can remove funds from the linked account or force the associate to release value from their own home to make up the shortfall.

Islington is a district in London and part of Islington Borough. Mainly residential and just north of London's centre, it extends from Highbury Fields to Islington High Street and includes the popular area centred on The Angel, Upper Street, Essex Road (where there are many antique shops) and Southgate Road.

You can visit the Granita restaurant (made famous because it's where Tony Blair agreed to share power with Gordon Brown), go to the Sadler's Wells Theatre for some contemporary dance entertainment or go to the Almeida Theatre to view creative stagings of new as well as established plays.

Islington Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Buyer? If you have specific enquiries you wish to ask the seller, get these over as quickly as possible through your solicitor.

Many enquiries are easy to answer but others will require the seller to produce specific documentation which they may have to obtain from third parties.

The sooner you get your own enquiries to the seller through your solicitor, the less opportunity there is for delays.
