The best thing about our job as a Mortgage Broker in Doncaster is helping our clients navigate through the often stressful experience of buying a home or remortgaging. It can be a complicated process and our clients love having someone on their side from start to finish to ensure they get the right advice.
We do pride ourselves on providing a highly responsive service, communication is everything in this job. We work from a large panel of well-known high street banks and building Societies to ensure our clients get the best deal available to them but we also work with smaller, more specialist Lenders too for when we come across clients who don’t “tick all the boxes”.
Your free initial mortgage consultation in Doncaster will last roughly one hour. We will then be on our way to recommending a mortgage for you, where you have no obligation for you to proceed. If you’d rather not take it and step back for a time, you have every right to do so.
Your mortgage advisor in Doncaster will carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal mortgage needs, before recommending the most suitable mortgage for your situation. A credit check will then be required in order for you to obtain an Agreement in Principle, which we are able to help with. Once you have provided the lener with all the relevant documentation, and you have had a valuation of the property completed, a formal mortgage offer can then be issued.
To avoid finding yourself disappointed when viewing and making offers on properties, we recommend you obtain an Agreement in Principle ahead of time. At the very latest, we recommend that you obtain one prior to making an offer, as this will assist your bargaining position.
An Agreement in Principle will usually last for between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender that you are with. If your Agreement in Principle expires, you can easily have it refreshed.
You may have the option of taking out a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or any potential Home Improvements. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property to use on yourself, for a family member, a holiday home or even a Buy to Let.
The minimum deposit a lender will require when purchasing a house in Doncaster is around 5%. This figure can possibly be higher if you have had previous credit problems, but entirely depends on the lender.
If you’ve had credit problems previously, you may still have a chance at getting a mortgage, but you may possibly be required to put down a higher deposit than for the property than you might have if you had with good credit. This can often be 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 mortgage amount you can borrow, whereas others will go off your net profit.
You’ll generally be required to send three payslips if you are a standard employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for self-employed. You will also need to produce proof of ID, proof of address and the previous 3 months’ bank statements.
The free mortgage consultation that you receive when getting in touch, will typically last up to an hour. We can help you obtain an agreement in principle within 24 hours of this consultation, with a formal mortgage offer taking on average about three weeks.
