Don't make multiple applications for credit

If you apply for lots of credit then every company you apply to will check your credit file. This could indicate that you are desperate for money and will have an impact on your credit score. Banks and building societies even check your credit score when you open a bank account.

Don’t worry, checking your credit score through Experian, Equifax or CallCredit will not affect your credit score.

95% mortgages

As a rule, 95% mortgages are those which offer a 95% loan to value ratio (LVR) i.e. a lender grants you a loan of 95% of the purchase price of the house you're looking to buy.

Because the standard deposit is 10%, 95% is clearly a larger LTV than normal and you can expect to pay higher interest rates than normal on your mortgage.

You should bear in mind also that if house prices decline just 6%, you will technically be in negative equity; this is more acceptable if you're intending to stay put for a number of years (you might 'ride out' the price fall until prices rise again) but if you're intending to move again in the shorter term, you face selling your house for a lower price than you bought it for.


Woolwich is a historic town and area of South East London, around 8 miles east south-east of the capital's centre and has a strong association with the military. Landmarks and attractions include the Thames Barrier, the 1912 Woolwich foot tunnel and the Royal Artillery Barracks.

Woolwich Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

One thing you can do for fast conveyancing in Woolwich is to opt for Monday as your completion date, when you get your keys and move into your new place.

Understandably, Fridays are the most popular days for completions - people then have the whole weekend to make their new place as shipshape as possible before going back to work on Monday. The trouble is, there's a fair chance that your conveyancing solicitor may well have other completions to do on Fridays and will be very busy already.

Therefore if you decide to opt for a Monday for completion - or indeed, just not a Friday! - your solicitor is more likely to be less busy and therefore more able to 'pull out all the stops' to help you to complete quickly, making sure all the transfers are carried out and so on.

So for a fast conveyancing move think about completing Monday to Thursday!
