The banks’ mortgage advisors are only able to offer products from one lender – Themselves. Their mortgage advisors can also be rather hard to get an appointment with, so if you’re actively looking at properties or are ready to offer this can be very frustrating.

Worry not, we have a lot of experience and knowledge in providing mortgage advice to customers with a variety of situations.

You will need to have saved at least 5% of the sale price of your new build property in Harrogate for your deposit when opting for a help to buy. The Government will then loan you an additional amount up to 20% to the properties value.
The discount provided to you by the council will often be used by lenders as your deposit for the property in question. Even still, some will require you to put down a deposit of your own in addition to the discount. This can sometimes be the case if you’ve had any credit problems. Our Mortgage Advisors in Harrogate are readily available throughout the day to answer your right to buy deposit questions.
The minimum deposit for a buy to let mortgage can vary somewhere between area of 20-40%, though typically it is usually 25% of the property value.
It is possible that your monthly payment would reduce if you went onto a lenders Standard Variable Rate (SVR), though it is also equally possible that your monthly payments could increase. Your dedicated mortgage advisor will compare the new products available against your current mortgage deal, in order to work out these savings for you. If you have equity in your property, a remortgage would also provide you with an opportunity to release some of this money if necessary for any reason. We often see this is used for things like home improvements or modifications.
You may have the ability to remortgage and increase the size of your mortgage to pay off any unsecured debts you have accrued over time. Please do not rush into this and make any hasty decisions though, as there can be some negative consequences. We would highly recommend that customers always seek Mortgage Advice in Harrogate before consolidating any of their debts!
When you speak with a mortgage advisor in your initial free remortgage consultation, the appointment will last roughly around 1 hour. Your advisor will then compare a new deal versus your current product and recommend the most appropriate one for your circumstances, with no obligation to proceed if you would rather not for any reason.
The fees involved with remortgaging your current home will be similar to the ones involved when you started the mortgage you are currently on.

They will take these into consideration when comparing the savings of the new deal against your current mortgage.
Your free mortgage consultation with a Mortgage Advisor in Harrogate will last for approximately one hour. They will then recommend a mortgage for you, one that you have no obligation for you to accept if you do not wish to. Proceeding with the mortgage is completely your choice.

To avoid being disappointed part way into your process if you don’t get the property you had eyes on, we recommend you obtain an Agreement in Principle ahead of schedule, before you begin viewing properties in Harrogate. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making any offers to a vendor, as this can aid with your bargaining position.
An Agreement in Principle will generally have a shelf life of between 30 and 90 days, depending on the lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, get back in touch with your mortgage advisor and they can get this refreshed for you.
If you are looking to do something like debt consolidation or any potential home improvements, you may have the option of taking out a second mortgage in Harrogate.
