First-Time Buyer Mortgage Broker in Birmingham

As an trusted and experienced Mortgage Broker in Birmingham with over 20 years of experience in the world of mortgages, we have helped many First-Time Buyers in Birmingham onto the property ladder, reducing their nerves and working hard to try and find them success with what they were looking to achieve with their first home. Because of our vast knowledge and experience in this industry, there is rarely a situation that we have not come across. Below are some popular First-Time Buyer scenarios we come across frequently.

What will the costs be? How much can I borrow?

For many who get in touch, especially First-Time Buyers, a part of the anxiety and uncertainty can be down to wondering how much they are able to borrow and what their monthly costs may be going forward. Your dedicated mortgage advisor in Birmingham will be able to provide you with a rough estimate on this, giving you a clearer picture and fewer unanswered questions surrounding your process.

You’ve seen a property you like – What’s next?

Generally, the next step after finding a property you like is to obtain an Agreement in Principle, also known as a Decision in Principle, DIP or AIP. No matter the name you hear it called, the purpose is the same. An AIP means that you have passed the lenders initial credit check and are agreed in principle for your mortgage. It shows the seller of the property you’re after that you’re in a position to proceed should they accept your offer, putting you ahead of other potential buyers allowing for possible negotiation on price. A member of our mortgage advice team can usually turn these around within 24 hours of your initial appointment.

Your offer has been accepted and you’d like to proceed with a mortgage application?

This is great news! Your next step will be to get back in touch with your Mortgage Broker in Birmingham. They will be able to progress your mortgage application and deal with all the paperwork on your behalf. We come across various circumstances and hurdles all the time, so your experienced advisor will likely have come across something similar in the past. With this knowledge, they’ll work hard to ensure you hopefully end up with a favourable outcome.

Mortgage advice in Birmingham from the bank was unsuccessful?

Whether because of bad credit, no credit or something else, we often hear from First-Time Buyers in Birmingham who have been turned away from their bank. Our team of mortgage and protection specialist advisors in Birmingham will work hard, from early until late, to try and find a solution for any hurdles you come across.

What our customers say

Common mortgage
questions

Your free mortgage consultation in Birmingham will last approximately one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether or not you wish to go ahead.

As your Mortgage Broker in Birmingham, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your needs prior to recommending the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check is then required for an Agreement in Principle and then once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been carried out a formal mortgage offer can be issued

Our Mortgage Advisors in Birmingham recommend that you try and get your Agreement in Principle before you take up the decision of starting to view properties in Birmingham, to avoid disappointment. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making an offer to assist your bargaining position with the seller.

An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days depending on the lender. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can always be refreshed. If you need help obtaining one, our Mortgage Advisors in Birmingham can usually get one sorted for you within 24 hours of your application.

It can be possible to get a second mortgage on your home in Birmingham for debt consolidation or home improvements. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property if it is for your own use, the use of a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.

To purchase a house in Birmingham, the minimum deposit with High Street Lenders is typically 5% but this can be higher if you have had previous credit problems.

If you have had credit problems you may still be able to get a mortgage but you will likely need to put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 15% of the purchase price.

You can get a mortgage in Birmingham once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts. Most lenders use your salary + dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage whereas others go off your net profit.

To prove income it’s usually three payslips for an employee and the latest 2 years’ accounts for Self Employed. In addition, you will need to produce proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements.

Our free consultation in Birmingham typically lasts up to an hour or so. We can turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours and a formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average. Before you know it, you will be moving into your new property in Birmingham!
