Pay off debts with savings

Information about any debt you owe to lenders and institutions can be accessed by other lenders and too much debt held generally lessens your credit score.

It invariably makes sense to pay off debts using your savings; the chances are any returns you make on savings are likely to be smaller than the interest and charges you have to pay for holding debt.

Bridging Finance

Bridging finance is not strictly a type of mortgage but is often strongly connected to mortgaging. Strictly speaking it is short term – and relatively expensive – funding which is often used to:

  • Bridge the finance gap between selling a property and purchasing another;
  • Help buy dilapidated properties to 'do up'; and
  • Help buy auction properties.
Lenders need to be satisfied that bridging finance can be repaid and normally require lending to be secured against other residential or commercial properties held, whether a first or second charge.

It is normally relatively quick to arrange and is set up on a bespoke basis.


Purley is an area in South London just south of Croydon and around 12 miles south of Central London. Its centre has large supermarkets, estate agents, restaurants and bars - Purley Way is one of the largest retail hubs in the UK. When you go through the area, it's hard not to spot the tall chimneys which used to be part of a power station but have been retained by IKEA, the present owner of the site.

The hub of Croydon is very near, with its own shopping options and entertainment including, for example, the Fairfield Halls, where you can hear all manner of music concerts. Purley has a Vue Cinmea in Hesterman Way.

Purley Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

If you're buying, getting a structural assessment (Building Survey) of your property in Purley from a RICS Surveyor is key and can save you £1,000s by highlighting defects that can be shared or negotiated with the seller. 

All too often buyers choose to not get a Building Survey thinking that their Mortgage Valuation will cover them for this. Sadly the mortgage valuation doesn't highlight structural defects or risks.

Once you realise this and then choose to get a Building Survey you may find that you are pushed to get this done in time for exchange of contracts because you have waited so long. This is especially annoying as your conveyancing solicitor needs some of the information from the survey to complete your legal work.

The best advice for fast conveyancing in Purley is to book your Building Survey at the same time as you instruct your conveyancing solicitor

Surveyors are in high demand at the moment and bookings can often take 7 to 10 days and then the report 3 to 5 days after that so the sooner you book, the quicker you'll know if there are any defects with you property - plus you'll be set for a fast conveyancing completion!
