Remove old addresses/old accounts from your file

If you have an account for, say, a mobile phone you don't use any more and it's linked to an old address, this can ruin a mortgage application due to ID checks.

You must make sure old accounts are closed or have an up-to-date address.

95% mortgage

As they sound, 95% mortgages involve a lender granting you a loan equal to 95% of the full purchase price of a home to enable you to buy it. You might look at these if you are looking to buy a property but do not have sufficient savings for a standard-sized deposit of 10% of the asking price.

The downside is that you have to take out a larger mortgage, which is likely to be more expensive in terms of interest rate levied on the loan. Additionally, house prices need only fall 6% for you to find yourself in negative equity.


Peckham lies under 4 miles from Central London and is a lively mixed residential and commercial area. Sandwiched between Camberwell and New Cross, it is an area of thriving markets, diverse pubs and restaurants and increasing gentrification, particularly in its Bellenden area.

Peckham's numerous attractions include the Rooftop Film Club, the Peckhamplex cinema, Frank's (rooftop) cafe, Bold Tendencies (art gallery in a car park) and the Ivy House, London's first community-owned pub. It also has great open spaces such as Peckham Rye, nearby Telegraph Hill and Goose Green, popular with families and dog walkers.

Peckham Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Get all your signed documentation to your solicitor in advance, if you want to give yourself more chance of a faster conveyancing process in Peckham.

Your conveyancing solicitor can't exchange contracts with the other side until they receive your mortgage deed, transfer deed, signed contract and so on. Originals of these documents, or at least some originals may be required by your solicitor and if so, you may need to post them.

It's a good idea, if you have to use Royal Mail, to send as much correspondence as you can together and make sure to use recorded delivery. This way, the documents can be tracked and you can find out when your mail was received and who signed for it. This is never best left to chance - you might lose your documents, which will slow down your conveyancing considerably and you will have to wait for replacements, into the bargain.
