Considering a new mortgage? We can help!
Fri 19 Jun 2015
Mortgages and financial products have been taking a central role in many news stories relating to the state of the current housing market.
Rates are at an historic low and competition between lenders is at an all-time high, however with the introduction of the Mortgage Market Review (MMR) last year it could potentially mean it will be more difficult for some people
to borrow the amount they need to secure the home they want.
We strongly believe all mortgage borrowers should take independent mortgage advice before making a financial commitment. It is probably the biggest financial commitment a person will make and it can be a costly mistake if the appropriate advice is not taken. This would apply for not only people buying a new home but also if you have decided and maybe in a position to remortgage.
Rates have the potential to rise early next year and this, combined with the new EU guidelines set to come into effect March 2016, could make it difficult for you to obtain a new mortgage. Lenders will be required to implement stricter affordability checks which could mean you become trapped on your lenders Standard Variable Rate (SVR).
