Don't hold and max out just one credit card

If you're close to maxing out the credit on the only credit card you hold, you'll be less able to respond, e.g., to an emergency – you might suddenly, for example, need to pay a mechanic to fix your car. This is a good reason to hold at least one other unused credit card.

You may also protect your credit score better: people who max out a single credit card are often regarded as being more likely to miss future repayments.

Current Account Mortgage

Current account mortgages are a version of offset mortgage where your current account and mortgage are converted to one account. The idea is that when you get paid, the credit reduces your mortgage sum, so mortgage repayments become cheaper, however the more of your pay you use, the more that the repayments rise to 'normal' levels.

The more your account is in credit, the more capital you'll pay off. You can't normally access discounted rates with this kind of mortgage.

Portsmouth Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Book your mortgage valuation as soon as you've had your offer accepted

If you're buying with a mortgage, you won't be able to complete unless the funds have come through to your solicitor. You have to apply for a mortgage, be accepted/get a mortgage in principle but then, once you've had an offer accepted, your mortgage lender has to value the property and only after this, assuming all goes to plan, do you get your mortgage offer with funds in readiness.

You can therefore minimise lost time by booking your mortgage valuation on the day you have an offer accepted. It may take around a week or so for the valuation survey to take place, then you have to allow for a few days to elapse before you have your offer. If you delay, the whole process slows down. 

Additionally, if there's any issues, like your lender undervaluing your property or making you a conditional offer, there might be further delays.
