Stay living in one place

Ever wonder why you get asked, “Have you lived at this address for longer than 3 years?” If you haven’t been registered at one address for a long period of time this will affect your credit rating because a mortgage lender wants to know where you live. If you keep moving, this shows a lack of stability and inconsistency increasing your risk profile.

Stay put and register everything you have to at this one address. Show a stable living and continuous residential address and your credit score will go up.

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.

Kentish Town is a district and area of North London (some would say North West London but this would be splitting hairs) in the London Borough of Camden. It has a long history and curiously was the home of several piano and organ manufacturers in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Among various other idiosyncrasies of the area, a network of streets in the East of Kentish Town has streets named after places or persons connected with Christ Church, Oxford such as Oseney, Busby, Gaisford, and Caversham. Some of the freehold of these streets is still in the name of Christ Church Oxford and there's a similar story in a network of streets in the north of the area, which was part of a large estate owned by St John's College, Cambridge.,/div>

In terms of landmarks and attractions for this well-connected and desirable area, there is the Forum, a music venue which has been open for decades and is perennially relevant, showcasing many different styles of music; the Dandy Lion market, with its mix of independent vintage items and affordable arts and crafts objects (Kentish Town Road/Islip Street); the beautiful Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St Andrew and, of course, Camden with its world famous markets and other attractions is within easy reach and Central London is but a bus ride – or longer walk – away.
