Taking out a mortgage is an important decision so we will take time to understand your circumstances so we can give you the most suitable advice.

Is Your Existing Mortgage Costing You Too Much?

Not everyone knows that you can review your mortgage at any time, and it is wise to review your mortgage from time to time to make sure you are still getting the most suitable deal for you.

Lots of people have their mortgage on their lender’s Standard Variable Rate. These can rise or fall at the lenders discretion so although they offer flexibility there is little certainty as to what your monthly repayments will be in the future. Borrowers with fixed rates that are ending may automatically revert to the Standard Variable Rate without getting a mortgage review. The consequences are that you could be paying many thousands of pounds more than you need to over the life of your mortgage.

We highly recommend that you contact one of our Mortgage Advisers and talk to them about a mortgage review.

Mortgage Advice For First Time Buyers

With increasing mortgage regulation in force lenders now use an affordability model rather than salary multipliers to establish what they will lend. We can research the mortgages available in the UK mortgage sector and advise you on competitive rates and importantly advise you on the most suitable mortgage option for your own financial goals and your personal circumstances.

But, you can do things to help us find the most suitable mortgage deal for you:

  • Know what’s on your credit file. Knowing at an early stage of any errors or blips on your credit file will assist us greatly
  • A minor error will stay on your credit file for six years and can seriously impact the lenders we can use
  • We suggest not applying for credit in the months running up to taking a mortgage
  • Make sure you are on the voters roll. This may seem minor but it can cause problems when making an application to borrow

Beware Of Lenders Arrangement Fees And Penalties

Mortgage lenders are in competition with each other for your valuable business. They are therefore willing to offer incentives to entice you. But beware some mortgage plans tie you in or carry penalties.

There are so many types of mortgage available that it is easy to become confused, possibly opting for the product offering the lowest headline rate of interest. But when booking and arrangement fees, conditional insurances, higher lending charges, lock-ins and early repayment charges are taken into account, the products may not be as attractive as you might have first thought.

Please contact us for a no-obligation consultation with one of our mortgage advisers. We can arrange a meeting at our modern offices between Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield with convenient free parking or at your own home.
