How to get a mortgage - or remortgage - in Lancaster


Lancaster is a city and the county town of Lancashire. Its Duchy of Lancaster holds significant estates on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II – who's also the Duke of Lancaster. It's an ancient settlement dominated by Lancaster Castle, Lancaster Priory Church and the Ashton Memorial. It is also home to Lancaster University and a campus of the University of Cumbria.

Mortgage Broker Tip  

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.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

Buying a home? Consider instructing a solicitor before anything else!

When you're looking to buy a home, it's a given that you'll be using a conveyancing solicitor (unless you're willing to risk a vast sum of money without the benefit of legal protection and expertise!).

Because the solicitor has to set up a file for you and you have to fill out forms and prove your ID/source of funds etc., the sooner you can do this, the more time you can save.

You do not have to have even picked out a property and made an offer at this stage! Ideally, you'll have applied for a mortgage and received a mortgage in principle, so you'll be in a position to look for houses within your budget range.

Matters like booking your mortgage valuation, booking a survey and getting searches can only occur once you've had an offer accepted, however instructing a solicitor is not dependent on this.

One advantage of this approach is that when it comes to putting in offers to vendors, telling them that you've already instructed your solicitor shows them that you're 'ready to go' and likely to be on the ball regarding the progress of any sale and a faster completion.
