ARCHIVE Many lack understanding on how to apply for a mortgage

Latest research by What Mortgage Magazine and Equifax has found that many buyers don’t understand the process of applying for a mortgage. Two years ago, new mortgage affordability rules were introduced and this research finds that many are unaware of how these rules might affect their application.

This was reported in What Mortgage Magazine on 9th March 2016*.

What this means for Home Buyers

Adam Nanson from Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“The new affordability rules mean that it is more important than ever for lenders to assess an applicant’s ability to repay the mortgage loan, both now and in the future.

“Despite these new rules being around for a couple of years, it doesn’t surprise me that many home buyers are blissfully unaware of them. We find that many home buyers are too busy to make themselves aware of the ins and outs of the mortgage application process and this is where an Independent Mortgage broker like Your Mortgage Expert can help.”

How Your Mortgage Expert can help

Adam Nanson continues:

“We can talk you through the entire mortgage application process and help you understand your full financial position. We will guide you through everything from understanding your credit report, how to get your finances in order for applying for a mortgage and which lenders would be more likely to look favourably on your application.

“By speaking to Your Mortgage Expert, you’ll get access to expert advice to help you work out how much you can afford to borrow, what your repayments would be and what type of mortgage is most suitable for your personal circumstances.
