Getting the key of your first home is one of the great moments in life and there are few things more exciting than buying the perfect property for your needs. Whether you are a first time buyer starting out on the property ladder, require more space for the family or are looking for an investment property to rent, it is likely you will need a mortgage to help you make your move.
Alternatively, you may be looking to capitalise on the growth in value of your property to help you with other projects. Re-mortgaging a property to provide money for a business, home improvements or perhaps debt consolidation is now a very common occurrence.
Finding the mortgage suitable for your needs can be a minefield because of all the choices that are available. As Independent Financial Advisers we can guide you through the mortgage process and help you come to an informed decision as to what is best for your needs.
When considering any mortgage finance you must understand that this is a significant financial commitment. Loans are often subject to checks in respect of your ability to repay the debt and the value of the premises that you wish to purchase.
Lifetime Mortgages (Equity Release Plans)
Lifetime mortgages are available to older home owners. They allow you to take out a loan secured on your home which does not need to be repaid until you die or go into long-term care. It frees up some of the wealth you have tied up in your home and you can still continue to live there.
Lifetime mortgages are often used to raise money to spend and enjoy during retirement.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up the repayments on your mortgage.
