How to get Mortgage Ready
It may seem obvious but you should have secure employment, ideally in a field or industry that is relatively safe from fluctuations in the economy. Lenders prefer full-time permanent positions, but in certain circumstances may accept a long-term contract. They are also more favourable if you have held your position for over a year.
2. Money Management
It is crucial that you show evidence of regular savings. Mortgage lenders want to see that you have the discipline, and the disposable income, to save on a regular basis. They will assess our ability to meet the repayments based on your ability to make rent payments (if you have previously rented) or your regular payments into your savings account. Additionally, your current account should be in good shape. Lenders look closely at how you spend your money, so while it is okay to have an overdraft, you should not be using it.
3. Credit History
Lenders like to see a clean credit history. They want to see that you made regular payment on any previous credit, and that you were not, and are not in debt. While you should have a history of a few personal loans it is recommended that you don’t have a high level of borrowing when you apply for a mortgage. If you do have any short-term loans it is best to pay them off before starting the mortgage process.
