Private tenant? Consider using Credit Ladder

If you're a private tenant and regularly pay your rent on time, you may wish to consider using Credit Ladder to help improve your credit rating.

You pay your rent to Credit Ladder - it's a free service – then Credit Ladder passes the money onto your landlord or letting agent, after which it informs Experian as to whether the payment has been made on time. The data is due to be visible to lenders from the end of 2017 onwards.

Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor Mortgage

A person may wish to buy a home but their salary multiples may mean that they can't get a sufficiently large mortgage to do so. One strategy they can use is to make a joint application for a mortgage, involving someone who can get a mortgage, and that other person then does not appear on the legal title. A joint borrower sole proprietor mortgage is the term for the mortgage the pair apply for.

There are legal risks involved in this strategy and at the very least, both participants are well advised to draw up a deed of trust to protect their individual interests.

Rochdale is a town in Greater Manchester. Historically part of Lancashire. Rochdale today is a predominantly residential town. Rochdale Town Hall (a Grade I listed building) dates from 1871 and is one of the United Kingdom's finest examples of Victorian Gothic revival architecture. Rochdale Town Hall is a Victorian era town hall widely recognised as being one of the finest municipal buildings in the country.

The Grade I listed building is the ceremonial headquarters of Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council and houses local government departments, including the borough's civil registration office.

Rochdale rose to prominence in the 19th century as a mill town and centre for textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution. It was a boomtown of the Industrial Revolution, and amongst the first industrialised towns. The Rochdale Canal, one of the major navigable broad canals of the United Kingdom, was a highway of commerce during this time used for the haulage of cotton, wool and coal to and from the area.

Rochdale Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Agree a date you want to compete by as soon as your offer is accepted

Even though you may not actually end up moving on the date you agree at this point, it is likely to focus any chain on a timeframe for exchange of contracts and completion, which is likely to save considerable time overall.

Ask your solicitor to inform all other parties of your preferred timeline.
