Plan Ahead to get a Mortgage in Manchester

Fast & Friendly Mortgage Broker in Manchester

Buying a home isn’t something that you decide in a day, there is planning that comes with it. Nevertheless, you’d be surprised at the number of people we have encountered on a daily basis who are more impulsive in their buying behaviour. By doing this, many people don’t plan for a mortgage ahead of time.

A First Time Buyer in Manchester might decide to jump into such a big financial commitment like purchasing a property if they are buying from a family member who is now moving home. Another reason might be as simple as finding a property with a ‘For Sale’ sign that has piqued their interest despite having no intention of buying in the past. You might already have your own rented property and your landlord is deciding to sell it and giving you first refusal.

The issues with not planning for a mortgage

Potential errors can occur because buyers have not planned in advance for a mortgage. Below are just a few hurdles we find customers are regularly faced with:

  • Not enough time to save money which means less deposit
  • Not seeing your credit score as important in the past leading to having a poor credit score
  • Conducting your bank account poorly
  • Your lastest accounts not looking their best as a self employed applicant

Deposits

When it comes to saving up your deposit for a mortgage, we understand that it can be challenging, in particular, if you are renting at the moment from a local council or private landlord. Large outgoings and essential purchases coming out each month can limit what you save, even if you have a constant income.

With the help of Gifted Deposit, family members have the chance to provide financial support. This can be a common option with First Time Buyers in Manchester, with a large number of buyers’ family members trying to help whenever they can. If this is something you are looking to do, it’s best to give the family member who’s gifting the deposit some notice in order for them to get their own finances sorted.

Credit Rating

Obtaining an up to date credit report is pretty simple. There is a range of credit reference agencies that you may be aware of, however, we personally would recommend Check My File. This is because they have the ability to collate the data from these sources into one, for you to compare.

When you have a copy of your report, you can send it to a Mortgage Advisor in Manchester to look over. Our team see these reports on a daily basis and have a good understanding of the sort of things lenders like to see, as well as identifying what they do not want to see.

Bank Accounts

Lenders look at your bank account to identify any unnecessary bank charges or gambling transactions. If you do have any on your statements, you need a good explanation of the goings-on with your account, as well as how you are going to resolve this going forward, should any issues arise again.

Self Employed

When it comes to self-employed applicants, we know that Accountants try to minimise tax liability for their customers. With this in mind, if your year-end has come around, then you can submit another set of accounts earlier than you might usually do. This can be beneficial if you feel your business has grown in the last 12 months. In some cases, lenders might disregard the initial years’ figures if the up to date ones are more favourable.

Regardless of your circumstances, if you feel your situation applies to any of the issues above, we are able to help. Here at Manchestermoneyman, we love a challenge, so don’t hesitate to Get In Touch!
