Often first time buyers live in rental properties and move more often than most, meaning they leave bank accounts, credit cards and things like pay slips registered to their parents or previous address. Getting your documents all updated and accurate will make the mortgage process easier and quicker. It is important that this is already done at the point of application; otherwise lenders may have problems identifying you, which can delay things and even affect your credit score.
Along with the mortgage payments you will need to budget for other outgoings such as utilities, council tax, transport cost and insurances.
If this is your first time living on your own, it is important to consider monthly food and basic living costs and even allowing enough money to furnish your new home.
For my first time delving into mortgages and home buying, I could not recommend anyone more so than Tyler at Turnstone Mortgages.
Unbelievably professional, courteous, friendly, and incredibly informative. These are just a taste of what to expect from the service at Turnstone Mortgages.
Tyler is a delight to work with and made the whole process a breeze.
Thank you so much, Tyler for the stellar service!
