Don't ever attempt to use illegal methods to rewrite your credit file to be more positive

There is an increasing number adverts from purported computer hackers offering to hack into the servers of credit reference agencies to do this for people worried about their credit scores.

Suffice to say that anyone doing this is committing computer fraud, a serious crime, and enforcement agencies are becoming increasingly better at detecting hacking. Additionally you might just end up being conned and paying over money for something which never materialises. It's a sure way to end up either poor…or in a jail cell.

Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor Mortgage

Joint borrower sole proprietor mortgages are a way in which a person who doesn't have a sufficient income to service a mortgage on a property themselves is able to team up with another person, who does, to buy a property jointly and then the latter person doesn't appear on the title.

If you choose to take out this kind of mortgage, you are both well advised to draw up a robust deed of trust which protects both your interests in the event that circumstances become unfavourable, for example you can't yourself continue making your required mortgage repayments and have to sell up.

Swansea is a coastal city and county in Wales, lying within the historic county of Glamorgan. It's Wales' second largest city after the capital, Cardiff, and is a major passenger port for people travelling to and from Ireland by boat.

Swansea has traditionally been a major port, trading in wine, hides, wool cloth and, during the Industrial Revolution and later, coal. It also was a centre for copper mining and smelting.

The 20th century saw a decline in Swansea's traditional heavy industry and the city has since moved more towards the services sector and has invested in attracting tourism, particularly to its coastal areas, where surfing has greatly increased as a pursuit. Swansea might be best known by many in the UK for hosting the DVLA, the government body devoted to managing motorised vehicle licensing.

Landmarks include Swansea Castle, the Tabernacle Chapel, Morriston and the Swansea Guildhall. Notable people from the city include the poet Dylan Thomas and the actor Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Swansea Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Let your mortgage lender know if you are needing to work to a deadline.

  • If you are using a mortgage to purchase your home in Swansea and want to get completed quickly, your mortgage lender should be able to advise you on whether or not this is possible. This could influence your mortgage lender and the mortgage product itself.
  • Taking a mortgage out can be a protracted process, especially since the Mortgage Market Review introduced greater restrictions, so it is important to get your valuation completed as soon as you can. 
  • This can be ordered via your bank or mortgage adviser and it can take around 2 weeks to receive the valuation. 
  • Please note the mortgage valuation and a building survey are two different things.
