Mortgages

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

THE FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY DOES NOT REGULATE BUY TO LET MORTGAGES AND COMMERCIAL MORTGAGES.


Has the penny dropped?

Sifting through the maze of mortgages can be a daunting task for most people. A Mortgage adviser will first understand your specific requirements and your financial situation. Depending on your personal circumstances, such as your attitude to risk, budgeting preferences, family situation, future plans, possible poor credit background and so forth, a mortgage adviser can make the most appropriate recommendation.


We work from a panel of lenders both highstreet and non-highstreet lender’s that can offer exclusive rates via Intrinsic. The panel is representative of the whole mortgage market. Our key ties with many mortgage lenders combined with the understanding of a diverse range of lending criteria, let’s us help more people.

Shifting to a new mortgage rate can reduce your monthly payments. Book a free initial mortgage review and see if you can save more on your monthly payments.

What documents are required?


Proof of your identity and address

We support the Proceeds of Crime Act and all efforts to eliminate Money Laundering. As Part of this, we need to verify the identity of all our clients. We ask that you provide some original documents containing your name and You must provide at least:


• One proof of identity document – e.g. Passport or Driving Licence.
• One proof of address document – e.g. utility bill from last 3 months.


To support your mortgage application


You may need to provide some of the documents below, relevant to your situation.


• Last 3 months consecutive bank statements.
• 3 months wage slips or 13 weeks.
•1, 2 or 3 years accounts if self employed.


• A Copy of your credit file.
• Self-employed- last 1, 2 or 3 years SA302’s, TYO’s.

Source of deposit

We will have to identify the source of your deposit. (E.g. if from your own savings then your last 12 months bank statements). It maybe equity in your current property, in this case no proof is required.


In cases were the deposit is a gifted deposit from your family we would require a gifted deposit letter from the donor. We will provide you with a template if necessary to support your application.


Credit file

With the increase in identity theft we strongly recommend you obtain a copy of your own credit report. This is to ensure your application is not delayed by uncovering surprises later in the process. It also means that any issues uncovered can be addressed, as it does not mean your application is automatically declined – indeed many lenders have provisions for this type of business. Check the initial and ongoing fees that agencies charge as they can vary. The main agencies to approach are Experian, Equifax, Callcredit, Clearscore.


You don’t have all supporting documents.

If you do not have all supporting documents in time for your first appointment, there is no need to worry. This can be discussed with the adviser. We can still provide advice without all the documents, but all documents will be required, prior to submitting your full mortgage application.
