Check your credit file after receiving any rejection for a credit application

If you don't find out why you've been rejected by checking your credit file and make further applications, each application worsens your credit score in turn.

If you discover an error, you might be able to get successive searches wiped but you'll have to negotiate with the relevant agency and lenders and success isn't guaranteed.

Tracker Mortgage

Tracker mortgages are in the wider class of variable rate mortgages and normally, the rate is a few percentage points above the prevailing Bank of England base rate. There is often a fixed term during which the arrangement operates, which is something in common with fixed rate mortgages.

The fixed term carries with it an early repayment charge if you choose to leave before it is ended. The interest charged at the outset is normally cheaper than for a fixed rate mortgage, however you are taking the risk that the rate might rise sharply, increasing the cost of your repayments in the same way. They therefore might not be attuned to buyers who have limited finances who cannot accommodate a sudden rate rise.

When a tracker mortgage has a lifetime – or length of the mortgage – term, there won't be an early repayment charge for leaving, but the risk of rates rising and making repayments very expensive remains.

Ongar Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Selling? Deal with any issues which are likely to appear on a survey before you market your property

A cautious buyer is more likely to book a RICS home buyers survey which is likely to show up any potential or actual defects your property may have.

If there are any, these may give a prospective buyer grounds either to bargain with you for a reduction in selling price or even to pull out of buying. At the very least you may end up wasting time as a result.

You should therefore call in a professional to remedy any structural issues you may have such as damp – the cause might often be damaged roofs or window frames or leaking pipes.
