Sort out any issues on your credit report

You must first obtain an up-to-date credit report to check how your credit worthiness is viewed. If you have been rejected for credit, you need to check your files immediately to work out the reason why. Otherwise, you may continue to apply for credit for which you continue to be declined. This cycle, of itself, worsens any credit problems.

First time buyer mortgage

First time buyer mortgages are any types of mortgage specifically marketed at first time buyers. They might for example be Help to Buy Mortgages or cashback mortgages (where the lender makes some cash immediately available for your home move when you take out the mortgage).

Mortgages specifically marketed at first time buyers are likely to be those which eliminate as much uncertainty regarding matters such as repayments as possible, so the certainty, for example, of fixed rates is likely to be favoured more than variable rate repayments.


London is a world-renowned city packed with iconic landmarks including, among others, the National Theatre, Leicester Square, Picadilly Circus, the London Eye, Covent Garden, Big Ben and County Hall. Diversions are almost limitless; taking music as an example, you can go to the Albert Hall in Kensington Gore to hear a classical music orchestra playing Beethoven but you might also take in some cutting edge dance music around the popular Hoxton & Old Street areas.

You can take a walk in Hyde Park, look at Buckingham Palace, see the Houses of Parliament, visit the Tate Museums (Pimlico (Tate Britain) and Bankside on the South Bank (Tate Modern) and walk along the South Bank. There are many varied markets, Spitalfields near Liverpool Street to the east and Portobello Road to the west being just two examples.

London Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Consider booking your searches as soon as you have an offer accepted

If you're buying a property with a mortgage, your lender will normally expect you to book four standard property searches (local authority, environmental, chancel indemnity and drainage) and you are advised to get searches anyway so you have as much information on your property as possible.

Although you could choose to delay getting your searches to space out your conveyancing-related payments, you are more likely to save time on your conveyancing if you do not.

Your solicitor needs the information detailed in the searches as part of their extensive checks on the property you're looking to buy. As soon as they have this, the quicker they can carry these out and the sooner you'll be able to exchange contracts with the vendor, all going well.

Should you or the vendor choose to pull out of the sale for any reason, the searches can be sold on to any other prospective buyer of the property in question.
