Ronan Marrion’s Top 5 Tips For Getting A Mortgage

I am a First Time Buyer

Getting a mortgage is a huge financial commitment but it needn't be difficult with our support through the whole process. Things that you will want to consider;

  1. Is a mortgage right for me? Can you really afford it or will you struggle to make each payment? Remember - renting isn't a dirty word. If it's either continuing to save up, or overstretching and having your first home repossessed - it is being realistic about your circumstances.
  2. Have you got a big enough deposit? The size of your deposit matters. It affects both how much you can borrow, and what interest rate you can borrow at. 
  3. Things that you can do to improve your chances of getting a mortgage. The days when lenders offered mortgages to everyone are long gone. To get the best mortgage deal doesn't just need a decent deposit, you now need a good credit score too. There are steps to help you with this.
  4. What type of mortgage to choose? Do you know your fixed rate from your variable rate? Or whether you should choose repayment or interest-only?
  5. Mortgages for the self employed/contractors. If you're self-employed or a contractor, then getting a mortgage is a little more complicated as you need cast-iron proof of what you earn. That's easy for the employed - they have payslips - but it's much tougher if you work for yourself or don't have a permanent contract. We tell you what a lender will want to see before they offer you a mortgage.
  6. Don't forget the fees. Make sure when you do the sums, you add the full costs of buying a house and mortgaging. You need to consider mortgage fees, survey fees, lawyers' fees and stamp duty for starters. You can try to minimise them, but they are a fact and cannot be ignored.

I am considering Buy to Let

The basics behind it are that you borrow on a property to let it out to tenants. For a buy to let mortgage you will typically need a deposit of 20% although you can borrow this against your own property. The buy to let mortgage lender will be expecting the rent you hope to receive to pay the mortgage so you’ll need to be sure of that.

Consider a few issues in our Buy to Let Mortgage Questions & Links item below.  Contact us today to find out which buy to let mortgage is best for you, complete our enquiry form or call Worldwide Financial Planning on 0800 0112825.

Questions

  1. Will I always have a tenant? If the property is empty for two months in the year this will leave a large hole in your budget.
  2. Will my tenant be a good one? If a tenant decides not to pay, there is a process for getting them out. It’s not quick, and it could cost you. It may be a three month process (two months' notice and one month cleanup).
  3. What if interest rates rise? If they do, they will eat into your profit and you may struggle.
  4. But I can always sell my home, can’t I? Sure you can, but in a down market this can be tricky and you can lose all your gain as people turn away from the property market.
  5. But properties always go up don’t they? They do… until they don’t. Like any asset they have their cycle. If you are trying to sell at the wrong time you won’t get the best price for your property and you may lose.
  6. Repairs? Repairs can be substantial and should be factored into your profit. A bad tenant can cost money in repairs.
  7. Tenancy agreements? Make sure they are tight and factor in legal expenses. In short, do a realistic budget and you will be fine.
