The best thing about our job as a Mortgage Broker in Beverley is helping our clients navigate through the often stressful experience of buying a home or remortgaging. It can be a complicated process and our clients love having someone on their side from start to finish to ensure they get the right advice.
We do pride ourselves on providing a highly responsive service, communication is everything in this job. We work from a large panel of well-known high street banks and building Societies to ensure our clients get the best deal available to them but we also work with smaller, more specialist Lenders too for when we come across clients who don’t “tick all the boxes”.
Your free mortgage consultation in Beverley will last approximately one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed, and you can decide whether or not you wish to go ahead.
As your Mortgage Broker in Beverley, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before recommending the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check is then required for an agreement in principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a property valuation has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.
We advise you to obtain an Agreement in Principle before property viewings in Beverley to avoid potential disappointment. At the very latest, we would suggest that you get one before you make any offers to put you in a better bargaining position. As a responsive Mortgage Broker in Beverley, we can typically obtain an agreement in principle within 24 hours.
An Agreement in Principle will last for between 30 and 90 days, depending on the lender. If your Agreement in Principle expires before you can use it. Don’t worry; speak to your advisor, they can make it valid again.
Depending on your circumstances, if you’re looking to achieve something like debt consolidation or home improvements, then you may be able to take out a second mortgage on your property. If you’re looking to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let, a second mortgage on that property may also be an option.
A high street lender will require you to put down a minimum deposit of 5% of the property purchase. If you have had credit problems in the past, this may be higher.
If you have struggled with credit problems in the past, you may still be eligible for a mortgage, though a lender may require you to put down a higher deposit than expected.
Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts moves you along the process, allowing you to obtain a mortgage in Beverley potentially. Most lenders will utilise your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount you are eligible to borrow, whereas some other lenders will go off your net profit.
For an employee to prove their income, it’s usually three payslips and the last two years’ accounts if you are self-employed. You will also need to provide proof of ID, address and the previous three months’ bank statements.
Generally speaking, our free mortgage consultation lasts around an hour or so. Additionally, we can turn around an agreement in Principle within 24 hours. But it takes three weeks on average for a formal mortgage offer to approve.
