Mortgage Broker Tip  

Don't make multiple applications for credit

If you apply for lots of credit then every company you apply to will check your credit file. This could indicate that you are desperate for money and will have an impact on your credit score. Banks and building societies even check your credit score when you open a bank account.

Don’t worry, checking your credit score through Experian, Equifax or CallCredit will not affect your credit score.
Top Mortgage Lenders  

95% mortgages

As a rule, 95% mortgages are those which offer a 95% loan to value ratio (LVR) i.e. a lender grants you a loan of 95% of the purchase price of the house you're looking to buy.

Because the standard deposit is 10%, 95% is clearly a larger LTV than normal and you can expect to pay higher interest rates than normal on your mortgage.

You should bear in mind also that if house prices decline just 6%, you will technically be in negative equity; this is more acceptable if you're intending to stay put for a number of years (you might 'ride out' the price fall until prices rise again) but if you're intending to move again in the shorter term, you face selling your house for a lower price than you bought it for.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

Let your mortgage lender know if you are needing to work to a deadline.

If you need to get moving quickly and are using a mortgage to purchase your home in Leighton Buzzard, you need to speak to your mortgage lender for advice on whether this deadline is achievable. This could actually even influence your choice of mortgage lender and mortgage product itself!

It is so important to get your mortgage valuation booked in as soon as possible. It can take up to 2 weeks to receive the valuation and you do not want to be stuck in a position where you are ready to exchange but cannot proceed because you have no valuation in as yet.
