As a first-time buyer, the first questions on your mind are usually, “how much can I borrow and how much deposit do I need?” This is then closely followed by “how much will it cost me each month?” If you’re currently living at home then this might be quite a bit different to what you’re used to, but if you’re renting then the overall cost might not be very much different to what you’re currently paying and sometimes less. Our initial discussion, where we will go through your situation will enable us to provide all of these answers. As whole of market advisers, we have access to a wide range of products and we save you the task of contacting each and every lender to see if what deals they have available are suitable for you. We will also guide you through the entire process until the day you get the keys to your first home.
Good deals don’t last forever and as a property owner, you’ll want to make sure that when your existing mortgage product expires, you can move onto another attractive deal that suits your needs. At the appropriate time, we will look at the options open to you and advise on the right course of action. This might mean staying with your existing lender on a new product or maybe remortgaging to a new lender. As whole of market advisers, we have access to a wide range of products, many of which are not available to the general public, and it is role to find you the most suitable product based on your requirements, with a view to trying to save you money where possible.
If you’re thinking of moving to a larger home or potentially downsizing, you’ll need to consider your mortgage options, especially if you already have a mortgage. There may be penalties involved that might have a bearing on your decision. We can look at the options for moving over your existing mortgage product as well as switching to a potential new lender.
Buy To Let
A property that you intend to buy with a view to renting it out requires a different type of mortgage - a buy to let mortgage. The main differences, compared to residential mortgages, are that you will need to put down a larger deposit and the amount of borrowing is determined by the level of rental income achievable rather than personal income. The interest rates are usually higher as well, though there is the option of buying the property through a Limited Company and benefiting from the tax advantages offered by this route; your accountant can confirm if this option is more appropriate for you.
