Mortgage Broker Tip  

Don't use unauthorised overdraft facilities

If you've set up an authorised overdraft facility with a bank, don't exceed your limit. Fees and interest charged on unauthorised overdrafts are generally extortionate and can damage your credit rating.

You should either restrict your outgoings to keep within your limit or, if you have to, find a cheaper source of finance, such as a loan.
Top Mortgage Lenders  

Family Offset Mortgage

These mortgages, which are a type of offset mortgage, typically involve family members placing their savings into an account linked the mortgagor's mortgage, and their savings interest is deducted from the mortgage interest, making the mortgage cheaper.

The lender often requires that the savings are 'locked in' for some considerable time (can be many years) until, for example, 75% of the mortgage is paid off. During this time, the family members cannot use the savings interest as income at all – it is tied in to being deducted from the mortgage.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

Instruct a solicitor even before your offer has been accepted.

If you instruct a solicitor at the earliest possible time, once your offer on a Wakefield property is accepted, you will be ready to get things underway and the seller will see how intent you are on purchasing their property. 

By being organised you are indicating to the seller that you should be able to complete in good time and the process will be as smooth as possible, thereby potentially increasing your chance of success.
