Beat the September Rush – Use a Mortgage Broker in Nottingham

It’s already that time of year again, the end of the summer holidays and the kids are going back to school. For those who want to resume to normal working life, this may be a huge relief!

As a Mortgage Broker in Nottingham, we know that a lot of people put off their mortgage/remortgage during the summer holidays as they simply don’t have enough time. This results in a large number of applicants all applying in September once the kids go back to school.

Have you ever thought about getting ahead of the game and trying to beat the rush? Doing so could allow you to get in front of potential competitors and help you secure your dream home faster than expected.

Fast and friendly mortgage advice in Nottingham

Here are some reasons why jumping the gun and starting your process early could help you secure a mortgage quicker than expected.

Beating competitors

If you’re currently viewing properties, you will know that there is always some sort of competition with other buyers. However, this could step up even more in September. With homebuyer demand expected to rise, rather than there being one other party looking to buy a property, there could end up being more than a few.

Our mortgage advisors in Nottingham will do their best to help you stand out in front of these buyers, however, to eliminate the number of competitors, you can start your process sooner rather than later. Beating them to the rush could help you secure your dream property.

As a first time buyer in Nottingham, you will want to put yourself in the best position possible at the point of application. You want to let your lender know that you’re a reliable applicant so that you can get in front of other buyers – we can help you with this.

AIP at the ready

We can get an Agreement in Principle (AIP) arranged for you within 24 hours of your free mortgage appointment.

An AIP shows that you’ve been agreed a certain amount in principle by a lender. This can show the property seller that you’re ready to proceed quicker than someone who doesn’t have an AIP in place.

If you get your AIP arranged before September, you could be able to make an offer on a property straight away, no hassle is needed.

Contact us and we will get your AIP arranged within 24 hours of your appointment.

A quicker overall process

Less buzz in the market means that your overall mortgage process should be quicker… right? Well, that answer can depend on which route you choose to take at the very start of your journey.

If you choose a mortgage broker in Nottingham like us, you could end up shooting your way through the process and have a property secured within weeks, you just have to go through the evidencing your income, affordability stage after that.

However, if you choose to go to a bank or building society, you could still end up being put in an appointment queue. There probably won’t be a huge backlog as you are still getting ahead of other people who are going to apply in September, however, they still may put off your application, meaning that it could dip into September anyway.

At Nottinghammoneyman, responsiveness is one of our core values, we believe that you should be able to book a mortgage appointment with a mortgage advisor in Nottingham straight away. With our service, we want you to beat the rush and get you through your process with a fast and friendly service.

Speak to a mortgage advisor in Nottingham

We have mortgage advisors in Nottingham available 7 days a week. You can book your own mortgage appointment by using our online booking feature today. With the help of a mortgage advisor in Nottingham, you could get the chance to beat the September rush!

Once the kids go back to school, the market will be back on fire. Start your mortgage process today and claim your free mortgage appointment. Whether you’re looking to purchase as a first time buyer or remortgage in Nottingham, we’re more than happy to help.

We hope to hear from you soon!

How The January 2021 Lockdown Will Affect The Property & Mortgage Market

Lockdown Mortgage Advice in Nottingham

From Tuesday 5th January, it was confirmed that you’ll still be able to buy or sell a home during the January 2021 lockdown, as well as move home if you need to.

During the recent Government announcement on 4th January 2021, Boris Johnson confirmed that the UK would enter another nationwide lockdown. The changes that were stated during the update would come into immediate effect on the following day 5th January.

This lockdown has affected many sectors differently, some have been treated more generously than others and still have the permission to continue as normal. This lockdown is functioning parallel to the November lockdown, the only difference is that this lockdown is going to be extended for a minimum of 8 weeks.

In terms of the property market, it’s still standing comfortably on its feet and everything is going to carry on as normal through this lockdown. This means that you’ll still be able to take up house viewings and progress with your property purchase or sale.

It’s important to know that there still could be a slight delay with some business. Solicitors and Surveyors are working to the current restrictions which has unfortunately slowed down their speed of service. Also, the end of the Stamp Duty Cut is just beyond the horizon, so as you would expect, there is an influx of mortgage applications within the market as it is anyway. Just because things are taking a little longer doesn’t mean that you should put off pursuing your dream home and a getting mortgage deal, both these things can still be achieved this lockdown.

Safety measures for home movers

As you’ve heard all year round, Stay Safe.

We urge applicants that are thinking of Moving Home in Nottingham to strictly follow the guidelines that have been put in place by the Government. These latest government guidelines for home movers are important as they keep you safe and everybody else safe.

It’s mostly little things, for example, you must sanitise and wear your mask when taking up house viewings etc.

90% mortgages are still available to buyers

90% mortgages took their time to return back to the market, however, now that they are here, there is a lot more hope for applicants trying to secure a competitive deal. Although, things are still catching up to speed and not every lender may be offering 90% mortgages. This may be down to their trust in the market; but don’t worry, in due time we are hoping for things to slowly return to “normal”.

There is still demand within the market and your Mortgage Broker in Nottingham knows that. We have seen the demand first hand as we are hearing from customers regularly who are looking for deals with a 5-10% deposit required.

There is also an opportunity to access a 90% mortgage through the likes of the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme or the Help to Buy Shared Ownership scheme. A Help to Buy Mortgage Advisor in Nottingham like us, will explain how these methods could help you obtain a mortgage with only a 5-10% deposit.

An extension on Mortgage Payment Holidays

Mortgage Payment Holidays were offered to homeowners during the first lockdown as a way to postpone mortgage payments for a short period of time. You could only access the scheme for a maximum of 6 months and the ending date was 31st October 2020. In good news, the government have announced that the Mortgage Payment Holiday scheme will be extended to 31st March 2021.

If you are yet to take advantage of a Mortgage Payment Holiday, you’ll be able to request a break of up to 6 months. If you’ve already taken a Mortgage Payment Holiday of less than 6 months, you will be able to extend your existing holiday up until the 6 month mark.

Still here, still open

In Nottingham, our Mortgage Advice service is still available and we’re here to help in every way that we can. Our brilliant team of Mortgage Advisors in Nottingham are here throughout lockdown working 7 days a week. So, if you have any questions, don’t think twice about getting in touch.

All customers will still benefit from a free initial mortgage consultation, no matter the situation.

For a brief rundown of the current status of the property and mortgage market, please see our video from company director Malcolm Davidson, recorded the following day.

Nottinghammoneyman Christmas Message During Covid-19

Have a safe Xmas – from your Mortgage Broker in Nottingham

We here at Nottinghammoneyman would like to wish everyone out there a very Merry Christmas, and we hope for a prosperous and healthy 2021 for all.

The values of properties in the UK have surprisingly held themselves up high during the pandemic. Due to stock shortage, undiminished consumer demand and the Stamp Duty Holiday (which is due to end in March of 2021).

Suppose we have learnt anything about the property market in 2020. In that case, it’s that you’ll never stop a dedicated and hard-working potential First Time Buyer in Nottingham from pushing through and doing whatever it takes to be a homeowner!

Purchase & remortgage predictions

We predict that as we advance into 2021, despite unemployment levels going on the rise, we here at Nottinghammoneyman fully expect the consumer demand for buying property to continue to be on the rise.

With people spending more and more time at home, it’s only natural that people will inevitably start looking for something bigger, better or with a lovelier garden.

Also, around this time of year, we will see lots of remortgage activity from customers who are happy with their current home but would like to invest in their homes by expanding for some home improvements.

Things are looking up

Interest rates are still relatively low, and off the back of Brexit, the Government will want the property sector to thrive, especially considering that it is one of the “wide multipliers”, e.g. it will uphold lots of jobs.

Once the vaccine is fully out there, and life starts to feel a little normal again. We believe there will be many people who adopt a “life’s too short” approach to their lives, something that should be good for the economy, especially those with involvement in the property market.

If you need Mortgage Advice in Nottingham or life insurance advice in 2021, please feel free to get in touch. Our dedicated mortgage advisors are available from early until late, seven days a week, from morning until late evening, to answer your questions. Contact us to book your free mortgage consultation!

Wear It Pink Day 2019

Mortgage Advisor in Nottingham

Today our Mortgage Broker in Nottingham, we wore pink to raise awareness for Wear It Pink campaign for Breast Cancer – one of the biggest fundraising events within the UK. So, we joined in with the many thousands who are taking part nationwide by dressing up in the pinkest items we could find in our wardrobes.

With an overall total of £33 million raised to date, we wanted to make sure that we did our part and put in our contribution to raise that number even higher!

This year, each of our employees paid £2 to spend the day bringing colour into the office and for the ones who didn’t were sent to our ‘Glitter Station’. Alongside the fashion fund-raising, we also made sure to utilize the resource Packs that Wear It Pink provide on their website and held a Big Pink Quiz of our own.

Further donations were also given by putting forward some spare change and choosing from a selection of snacks generously brought in by members of the office.

But we thought why stop there? We also gave our Mortgage Advisors in Nottingham the chance to enter a raffle where they had the opportunity to win one of our various prizes including plants, sweets and extra little treats.

With the day not being over yet we’re keeping up the fun-filled atmosphere to gather even more funds to support this great cause before the day comes to an end.
