  • Planning ahead will help you make progress towards your goals and show lenders that you are prepared, which could make it easier for you to get a mortgage.

    Unless you've sorted out your home-buying fund, you will need to start saving, cut down on any borrowing and make sure your credit record is as good as possible.

    Build up a solid savings balance:

    Mortgage lenders now require a deposit, usually a minimum of 5% of the property price. The more money you can put in as a deposit, the better the mortgage deal you can get. This could mean a lower interest rate.

    Reduce your debts:

    Most lenders work out how much you can borrow based on your outgoings as well as your income, so it's worth looking at any existing credit agreements you have to see if these can be repaid before applying for the mortgage.

    Improve your credit rating:

    Your credit rating can have an effect on the mortgage rates available to you. If your rating isn't good, you should take steps now to improve it. Here are some ways you can do this:

    Be on the electoral register.

    Keep up to date with payments on loans and credit cards.

    Check your credit rating with a credit rating agency such as Experian and Equifax to make sure it's accurate.

    Remember, any missed or late payments will be reflected on your credit report and could stay there for years, so be sure to keep paying on time, even if it's just the minimum amount. Also make sure you cancel any unused store cards, credit cards and bank accounts.

    What can you afford?

    The checklist below is quick and easy way to help you work out how much you can afford to spend on your mortgage each month. Subtract your total spending from your total income and the amount left over might give you some idea of how much you could afford for your monthly mortgage payment.

    Total - What you earn each month

    Minus - What you spend on household commitments each month

    Minus - Your everyday spending each month

    Minus - Your occasional spending on things like holidays

    Total available to spend on your mortgage each month

    Extra costs when buying a home

    Moving home is expensive and there are costs that we often forget but could have a real impact on your decisions. You can make things easier by budgeting for them.

    Deposit

    You'll need a deposit, usually a minimum of 10% of the property price. Generally the bigger the deposit you have, the better the mortgage deal you can get. This could mean a lower interest rate. So the sooner you can start saving the better. Get started by opening a separate savings account and setting up a monthly standing order.

    Arrangement fees

    Many lenders charge an up-front fee for setting up a mortgage.

    Mortgage Product Fees

    Most lenders have a selection of mortgages with a product fee on certain deals.

    Mortgage valuation

    Most lenders charge a fee for having the property you're buying valued.

    Legalsearches and fees

    You'll need a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to take care of the legal details.

    Higher Lending Charge

    If you're borrowing a high percentage of the value of the property, the lender may charge a fee to take out insurance cover. This protects them in case you can't pay back your loan and they have to sell your house at a loss.

    Stamp duty

    This is a tax on buying property. You can calculate stamp duty based the jurisdiction where the property is located by following the applicable link below.

    England and Northern Ireland: Stamp Duty Land Tax

    Scotland: Land and Buildings Transaction Tax

    Wales: Land Transaction Tax

    Removal costs

    You may be happy to hire a van and move things yourself. A removals firm will cost more but can make the whole process much less stressful.

    Estate agent's fees

    If you're also selling a house and decide to use an estate agent, they'll charge commission on the price your house sells for.

    Buildings insurance

    Don't forget buildings cover before you exchange contracts.

    If your home has five bedrooms or less, our new Pick and Protect home insurance covers unlimited repair or rebuild costs.

  • Mortgage types explained

    When you apply for a mortgage, you'll be able to choose from several different types of deals. Most lenders offer a range of options on their mortgages, including a fixed rate mortgage or a tracker rate mortgage.

  • What is a fixed rate mortgage?

    Your interest rate will stay the same for a set period. Many lenders offer fixed rates for two, three or five years, sometimes longer. The benefit of a fixed-rate mortgage is that it helps you to budget more easily, because your interest rate will stay the same for the length of the deal. Early repayment charges will almost always apply if you switch away from the mortgage before the fixed-rate period ends.

    Mortgages FAQs

  • What is a tracker rate mortgage?

    With this type of mortgage, the interest rate tracks a rate that is outside the control of the lender, such as the Bank of England bank rate (also known as the base rate). Every time that rate goes up or down, so does the interest rate on your mortgage. Naturally, you will be better off whenever the interest rates drop and your monthly payments will be less. But, you should make sure your budget will allow you to make higher monthly payments if interest rates were to go back up. Early repayment charges will sometimes apply if you switch away from the mortgage before the tracker deal period ends.
