Get your name on a utility bill if it isn't already

Utility bills such as gas and water bills count as credit and if you make the correct payments at the right time for them, this will increase your credit score.

You may already be contributing responsibly to joint household bills, but unless your name is officially on a bill, it won't give you the chance to give a positive uplift to your score.

Interest-only Mortgage

Your repayments for an interest-only mortgage only go towards paying for the interest on the loan. The actual loan capital has to be paid off using one or more other investment vehicles, such as an endowment fund – it does not work like a repayment mortgage, where you develop an increasing equity in the property over time.

Interest-only mortgages are only open to commercial mortgage applicants, including, most notably, those looking to buy to let.

Launceston Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Choose conveyancing solicitors who balance their work well

Conveyancing solicitors look after the needs of many clients and if they take on too many clients, they will be unable to give adequate service to all of them particularly in matters of communication and it's more likely that mistakes will be made.

SAM Conveyancing carefully balance the workloads of the solicitors we use to ensure that you receive the optimum level of client care when you move home. We also only employ Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) solicitors, so you can relax secure in this knowledge when you choose us.
