We first met Esther 5 years ago, after speaking to multiple advisors and building societies we decided to get a mortgage through Esther.

The products she offered were by far the best deals we had found and she also offered a very flexible service to suit us and our busy lives.

Mortgage Advice FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The amount you can borrow is dependent on a few factors but the main one is affordability which can vary between lenders. The lender will need to know your income which you will need to prove in the form of payslips or self-employed accounts. Most lenders will also include state benefits as income such as child benefit, working tax credits and child tax credits which can help with affordability. If you have any existing commitments such as debts like credit cards or loans for example these will need to be taken into account along with how many dependents you have.

Just because you have an impaired credit history doesn’t mean you cant get a mortgage. Ultimately it depends on what type of impaired credit you have, how long ago it was registered and whether or not its still outstanding. Some lenders are more lenient than others and will be more relaxed but generally you may only be able to approach specialist lenders rather than the high street ones meaning your interest rate may be slightly higher or they may reduce the level of borrowing. You will need to provide the adviser with a copy of your most up to date credit history report such as Experian in order to provide you with the most accurate advice.
So that I can determine your budget and affordability, I will need to see your latest 3 months payslips plus your latest P60. Also I will need the details of any debts you have which may or may not include credit cards, loans, hire purchase agreements and existing mortgages including buy to lets. Also its useful to bring along your latest 3 months bank statements so that we can accurately determine your maximum monthly budget. You’ll also need to bring proof of your name and current address such as the latest council tax bill or utility bill. This is just the basic information and the lender may require additional information later down the line.

This depends on the complexity of your situation, for example someone with impaired credit may take longer to obtain a mortgage agreement. It also depends on the lenders service standards and turnaround times. On average it can take around 2 weeks from application submission to receiving an offer.

Firstly you will have an initial chat with your broker to see if they can help. If they can, you will need to arrange a face to face appointment at a convenient time which will enable the adviser to provide you with tailored advice to suit your circumstances. Once you provide all the necessary documents and the adviser has identified a mortgage product for you, the adviser will the n be able to provide you with your Agreement in principle certificate. This is usually valid for 3 months with most lenders and is a tool to help provide evidence that you can proceed when offering against properties on the market.
