Something for First-Time Buyers

The first step is to find out how much money you can borrow and then work out what’s affordable for you. The main hurdle many first time buyers come up against is finding money for the deposit. Having a small deposit can restrict the number of mortgages available to you, but there are first-time buyer mortgage schemes – such as Help to Buy – that your mortgage adviser can discuss with you.

Following this, the next step is to get yourself mortgage ready. With more stringent affordability testing from the lender, it’s important that your finances are in order. You might be surprised that there are actually some really simple things you can do to help improve your chances of getting a mortgage.

My request to renew my existing mortgage with Mortgage Decisions was superbly handled by David who is a most knowledgeable person. I was impressed with his professionalism and his attention to detail. The end to end process was explained throughout by David in particular the various options available to me. This is the second time that Mortgage Decisions have assisted with my mortgage and I wouldn’t hesitate in asking them again in the future.

I was highly impressed with the mortgage services provided. My needs were somewhat complex (some mortgage brokers refused to help me at all), but they managed to find me the best deal.
