Get a Credit Card

A credit scoring agency needs for you to have a credit in order for them to score you. Get a credit card, use it and pay it off in full. You must pay it off in full, otherwise you will worsen your credit score. Your credit report will start to show a credit where you borrow money and pay it off –this is exactly what mortgage lenders want to see.

Remember, use it and pay it off every month, otherwise this won’t work. If you have struggled getting a credit card before, go to a company that offers credit cards to people with bad credit rating. The interest rate will be through the room, but don’t worry, because you are paying off the balance every month you won’t incur any interest penalties.

Fixed Rate Mortgage

This type of mortgage loan involves repayments being fixed at a certain agreed interest rate for a set term with no adjustments. Their advantage is that a mortgagor knows exactly what has to be repaid each month for a set period and will be unaffected by for example sudden changes in the Bank of England base rate (which may or may not be to the advantage of the mortgagor).

Typically, the fixed period is 2 years, 3 years, 5 years or 10 years. When the fixed term has expired, these mortgages normally change to variable rate mortgages, where the repayments can float (go up or down) because the rate moves when an underlying index – most normally the Bank of England base rate – moves. When the fixed term ends, the mortgagor can opt renew a fixed rate contract.

Maida Vale Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

One thing you can do for fast conveyancing in Maida Vale is to opt for Monday as your completion date, when you get your keys and move into your new place.

Understandably, Fridays are the most popular days for completions - people then have the whole weekend to make their new place as shipshape as possible before going back to work on Monday. The trouble is, there's a fair chance that your conveyancing solicitor may well have other completions to do on Fridays and will be very busy already.

Therefore if you decide to opt for a Monday for completion - or indeed, just not a Friday! - your solicitor is more likely to be less busy and therefore more able to 'pull out all the stops' to help you to complete quickly, making sure all the transfers are carried out and so on.

So for a fast conveyancing move think about completing Monday to Thursday!
