Our Process

> In depth discussion

Everybody's circumstances are different. From what is your employment status through your income to your credit history. We match your information to the most suitable lender to obtain the most suitable first-time buyer mortgage for your needs.

> Decision in Principle

Once we have gathered all of your personal and financial information, we will look to secure your DIP (Decision in Principle). A DIP or AIP (Agreement in Principle) is a non-binding offer by the lender based on the information you have provided and initial checks such as a soft or hard credit check, depending on lenders. The lender will then, in principle, issue you with a certificate stating the amount they are prepared to lend you for your property purchase. It should be noted that a DIP is not a guarantee of acceptance by a lender for a loan, as this will be subject to a full mortgage application and valuation of the property you are purchasing.

> Offer on Property

You have your DIP (Decision in Principle) secured, now it is time to make an offer on a property.

> Mortgage Application Submission to the lender

Following the acceptance of your offer, we will check and submit copies of your documents to the lender ( payslips, company accounts, bank statements, proof of deposit and sometimes many other documents). It allows the lender to agree on the case.

> Full Mortgage Application

At this point, the lender verifies the information that you have provided is correct and reviews all the documents. If the lender is happy with everything, they will send you a mortgage offer.

> Conveyancing

The legal part of the process is where the solicitors/conveyancers draw up contracts and organise the actual, legal purchase of the property.

> Exchange and completion

Once everything is in place, your conveyancer/solicitor will exchange contracts with the seller’s conveyancer/solicitor. Congratulations! At this point, you put down
your deposit and are legally bound to buy the property.

Savings & Deposit when Applying for a First Time Buyer Mortgage

There are many ways to purchase your first home, but one of the main things you will need is a deposit. Most banks/building societies want you to put down at least a 5% deposit. It determines which "LOAN TO VALUE" you gain, along with interest rates. Some lenders do offer 100% mortgages, but this is subject to family help. The more savings you can put as a deposit, the less you will need to borrow from the bank, and the more competitive mortgage rates you will get.

How much can I borrow when applying for First Time Buyer Mortgage?

Finding out how much you can borrow can become very frustrating. You may have experienced this already by looking at multiple lenders websites and using their calculators. Quickly you will find out they all give you various amounts. The reason behind this, all lenders will use different methods towards working out your maximum borrowing.

Here our experience and knowledge come to hand. We start by having an in depth discussion with every client to gain a clear picture of a current and future financial situation. We calculate exactly how much you can borrow based on individual circumstances and what that would cost. You can rest assured that we only look at lenders that give the best affordability for each situation.

Types of mortgages

When you start to dive deeper into the mortgage process, you will discover that you have many types of 'REPAYMENT METHODS' towards the mortgage, such as capital and interest, interest only, and part and part.

Along with this, you also have different types of 'MORTGAGE PRODUCTS' such as Fixed Rates, Variable Rates, Tracker Rates, Discounted Rates, Capped Rates, and Offset Mortgages.

We will talk you through each option and explain which may be best for your situation, and then essentially, we will be able to create a shopping list of what is important to you on the mortgage and make sure we find a lender that suits all of your needs around the type of mortgage required.
