Late bill payments can reduce your credit score!

If you are lax about paying bills and often pay them late, this can affect your credit score. Paying your bills on time means a higher credit score and lenders are more likely to trust you.

Contributing to household bills without having your name on the bill itself means you won't get that credit score increase. However if the bills are payed form your account, under your name, it will affect your credit score.

Cashback Mortgage

Cashback mortgages are those which provide a lump sum cash incentive on take-up. This makes them marketable towards first time buyers, who may find themselves particularly cash-strapped when they've completed their first purchase and lacking funds for projects like decorating.

Cashback mortgages are not restricted in terms of the broader types of mortgage they can accompany: you can get cashback mortgages offered at fixed interest rates and variable interest rates for example.

If you are thinking of applying for a mortgage offering cashback, you should carefully examine matters such as the interest rate you'll be paying and any start-up fees you have to pay; you may find that for some mortgage products, the lump sum comes at a far higher cost than you first thought.

Lancaster Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

If your home purchase in Lancaster is being financed with the help of family and friends, making sure your solicitor has all of the information in good time can speed up the conveyancing process.

Your solicitor will need proof of funds, ID and relevant documentation where there is a loan or a gift. Without these documents, you may not be able to exchange until your solicitor has them in his hands.

Even then, a mortgage lender may be unwilling to lend where there is an unregistered interest, i.e. the financial interest of this third party, over the property.

As things can get so complicated, it is important to get things sorted out from the outset so your solicitor can get working on it as soon as possible.
