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.

Jack and Russell were absolutely amazing and helped me secure my first mortgage with no problems at all. As a first time and solo buyer it is all very daunting but they explained everything to me and I could trust that I was in good hands regarding the securing of my mortgage offer. Their communication was brilliant as I usually had a response to any questions within a day and my mortgage offer came through so fast. Thank you!

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.

Toby was absolutely a knight in shining armour. Every step of the way he explained everything, he understood my situation and it felt like he was holding my hand through some turbulent times. I can't thank him enough.
