Your Specialist Mortgage Advisor in London

As an experienced team of mortgage advisors in London, we are able to access our vast panel of specialist lenders, each with their own unique lending criteria.

An In-Depth Look at Specialist Mortgage Scenarios

When a mortgage applicant is facing a difficult process with their mortgage and isn’t able to get to a point where they can be accepted by a lender, we will always be there to help them out in any way they can.

 

As an experienced mortgage broker in London, we have been through appointments with a large variety of unique customers, all with their own mortgage scenarios. Here is a more in-depth look at some of the more frequent complex scenarios;

Property Down Valuation

If you have gotten someone out to perform a property survey on your potential new home and then find out that your offer that was accepted is actually way above the market value of the property, you have had a Property Down Valuation.

 

Though not completely the end of the line for you, it is more than likely that your lender will pull out of your mortgage deal. If you are able to make up the difference between your offer and the true value of the property, the lender may still allow you to proceed.

Divorce & Separation Mortgage Advice

If you are going through a divorce or separation with your now ex-partner, it can be difficult making arrangements for the next step in your life. This only becomes more complex if you are tied into a mortgage together. You should sort this as soon as possible, as otherwise if left too long, it can get a lot more complicated.

Remove a Person From a Mortgage

In addition to the mortgage scenario just mentioned, if you are going through a divorce or separation, you may be looking to remove your own name or your ex-partner’s name from the mortgage. You will have limited options depending on the financial stability of you both, as well as your affordability, as you will now only be living off one income.

Single Name Mortgages for Married Applicants

If you’re married and checking out your options for taking out a mortgage on a property you and your partner are going to be living in, chances are a mortgage lender would prefer you both to be on the mortgage. That being said, there are still options out there if you would rather it only be in one of your names.

Shared Ownership

The Shared Ownership Scheme really is a great way for mortgage applicants to take out a mortgage as a percentage share of the property, rather than the full price. This share will typically be between 25%-75%, though some lenders may go down to 10%. The owner of the remaining share, likely a local authority, will be paid back as rent alongside your mortgage payments to the lender.

Professional Mortgages

Professional mortgages can only be accessed by very specific professions. This is an incredibly niche area of the mortgage market and as such we would absolutely recommend booking a mortgage appointment with a specialist mortgage advice team to learn more.

Second Home Mortgages

If you have any plans to take out a mortgage on a further property, you will need to show the lender proof that you are financially capable of covering the costs of both mortgage payments simultaneously. We are able to help you make preparations for this.

Holiday Home/Let Mortgages

Holiday lets are similar property types to buy to let properties. The main difference is that in this case, you won’t have a  permanent tenant, with it possibly generating no income during off-seasons. Because of this, lenders need to have absolute confidence that you can afford your mortgage payments every month, whether you have a tenant or not.

New Build Mortgages

New builds may potentially be more expensive to invest in than older properties. If you’re finding it difficult to save up for your initial deposit and you are a first time buyer, you may be able to use the government’s Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme as a way to get onto the property ladder.

Non-Standard Construction Property Mortgages

A ‘non-standard’ property is a property that is not put together using regular building materials like bricks or mortar. In order to take obtain a mortgage on such an obscure property type, you will need a very specialist mortgage product. We would recommend taking out a full property survey on this type of property.

Multiple Applicant/House of Multiple Occupation Mortgages

HMO mortgages are basically large buy to lets with 4-6 tenants, similar to what you would see with student housing. HMOs are often very complex to deal with. We would recommend seeking specialist buy to let Mortgage Advice in London if you’re looking at taking on a HMO.

Mortgages Past Retirement Date/Lifetime Mortgages

You may be able to release the equity that you have gradually built up in your home, turning it into cash using a lifetime mortgage. This is a very specialist mortgage type and requires speaking to a specialist to make sure everything is correct.

Offset Mortgages

Offset mortgages use a new savings account created to use with your mortgage. This type of mortgage could be a great way of helping you access competitive interest rates and mortgage products.

What our customers say

Common mortgage
questions

Your free initial mortgage consultation in London will last roughly one hour. Your dedicated mortgage advisor in London will then recommend a mortgage for you, with no obligation for you to proceed. At this point, it is up to you to decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the recommended mortgage.

If you choose us as your Mortgage Broker in London, then our process will work as the following; One of our Mortgage Advisors in London will carry out a Fact Find to determine your, needs before recommending the most suitable mortgage available for you. A credit check will then be required for an Agreement In Principle.  Once all the relevant documentation has been gathered and the valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

In order for you to ensure you are prepared as early as possible, our Mortgage Advisors in London recommend that you obtain an Agreement in Principle prior to viewing properties in London. At the very latest you should obtain a Mortgage Agreement in Principle before you make any offers, in order to help with your bargaining position.

An Agreement in Principle will normally last somewhere in the range of 30 and 90 days. This depends on the Lender that is being used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, your advisor can always refresh this for you.

If you are looking to achieve something like debt consolidation or home improvements, you may be able to get a second mortgage. The option for a second mortgage can also be used on a second property if you are looking at using it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.

The minimum deposit necessary for purchasing a house in London with High Street Lenders is usually at 5%. If you have had previous credit problems, this could be higher.

Obtaining a mortgage if you have had previous credit problems isn’t completely impossible, but you may face certain hurdles, such as some lenders requiring that you put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 15% of the property purchase price.

You are able to get a mortgage once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts. The majority of Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum amount you can borrow, whereas others may use your net profit.

Three payslips are generally what is required for an employee to prove their income and if you are Self-Employed, it’s usually the latest 2 years’ accounts. You will also need to produce some proof of ID, your address and the latest 3 months’ bank statements.

If you take up a free initial mortgage consultation with one of our trusted Mortgage Advisors in London, your appointment will last around an hour. Your advisor will be able to turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours, with a formal mortgage offer taking roughly about three weeks on average.
