How much will I be able to borrow

Lenders are working to very strict criteria of how much they will lend you and this has been made even harder by the coronavirus pandemic. Firstly, we will work together on your application and look at the crucial factors including affordability and your particular circumstances. We will then pre-test the application which will give you the best chance of matching you to the best deal. Meanwhile you can try our mortgage calculator below.

Your deposit

The golden rule is quite simple, the bigger the deposit, the better the interest rate, the lower your monthly repayments, the cheaper the mortgage. The difference between a 5% and 10% deposit is huge in terms of your monthly repayments and interest rates for example, so if you can boost the size of your deposit by saving for longer, or asking parents or grandparents to contribute, do it.

However there are some schemes available if you do not have a deposit at all or have a very small deposit, so it is worthwhile having a chat with us to see if this could be an option for you.

Benefits of remortgaging

The benefits of remortgaging can be a reduction in monthly payments, changing to a better interest rate and/or shortening the pay back term. You can also look to remortgage if you need funds for home improvements, pay off costly debts including credit cards and loans, or to help your children/grandchildren with a deposit fund for their own home buying.

Helping your child or grandchild onto the property ladder

There are several ways of to help your child/grandchild as a first time buyer:

  • You can either gift them a deposit,  providing the remainder of the mortgage is affordable for them of course and you can do this by gifting non-refundable savings or raising money from equity in your own property for example.
  • With some lenders, you can have a charge put on your property or use savings as collateral for a deposit, which you then receive back once the property is sold.
  • Alternatively,  you can be an applicant on the mortgage as a joint borrower, but your child/grandchild would be the sole proprietor (owner) of the property.

Each option as you would expect has various rules and criteria, some of which may/may not be suitable, and we are here to help you talk through the detail and find the most effective and affordable option for both yourself and your child/grandchild.

Mortgage Reviews

“I have used Services from Bob Wood at Ellis Bates since I bought my first house in 2003 and will never go anywhere else. He has been reliable, helpful and fully supportive making the task of getting a mortgage as simple as possible every time its due for renewal as I haven’t got the time or the knowledge to really know what I’m looking for. Simple and clear information fully explained with all the pros and cons. Never feel anything is hidden, just looking for the best deals for me. He has made me feel comfortable when visiting my home at times that suit me, and even to my place of work on occasion when better for me. Would highly recommend.”

“We had the pleasure of being allocated Margery Gledson as our mortgage broker. We were first time buyers who didn’t know much about the process, and Margery ensured everything went smoothly. From enquiry until completion, she has always been informative and responsive. She was warm and friendly throughout, always taking the time to explain anything we weren’t sure about, in an accessible way. She’s been a huge help to us, and we would highly recommend her, we can’t thank her enough!”
