Obtaining an up to date credit report should also be at the top of your list, you want to know exactly where you stand in terms of your credit score. You don’t want anything holding you back from buying a home. Taking the above two steps will give you a good insight into how possible this is going to be and what your budget is.

Getting organised

Your Mortgage Broker in Hull, like us, will be able to obtain a fully credit-checked agreement in principle on your behalf. In order to get this, you will have to provide some proof of who you are to us, this includes your name, where you live and how much you earn. There is a lot of paperwork for you to get together so it’s a good idea to open a file for yourself and start collecting everything in advance.

Proof of ID

In terms of proving who you are you’ll need to produce some photo ID such as a Driving license or passport.

Proof of address

In addition to the above, you’ll need to prove where you live. You’ll need to produce a utility bill or original bank statement dated within the last 3 months.

Last three month’s bank statements

The analysis of your spending habits has become one of the most important determining factors in whether you’ll qualify for a mortgage or not. Lenders need to be certain that you will be able to meet your mortgage payments every month. Your bank statements should evidence your income and regular expenditures. Lenders will not be happy to see gambling transactions on your account, neither will they like it if you go over an agreed overdraft limit or if your direct debits bounce regularly.

Proof of deposit

You will have to prove you have the funds in place for the deposit and also evidence this for anti-money laundering purposes. Try not to move monies around your various accounts too much as it will make evidencing the audit trail more difficult. Lenders like to see your savings building up so you’ll need to account for any large credits into your accounts.

With the recent increase in popularity of gifted deposits, we often see that they make up most of people’s 5%. These gifted deposits are most commonly from a family member or friend of the applicant. These funds can’t just be handed over, they need to be evidenced; meaning the “donor” will need to sign a letter to confirm that this is a gift and not a loan.

Proof of income

In terms of affordability, the most important thing is to be able to prove your income. If you are employed this tends to be by way of your last 3 months’ payslips and most recent P60. Lenders can take into account regular overtime, commission, shift allowance and bonus. If you are Self Employed then you’ll need your accountant’s help. This will be to request your last 2 or 3 years’ SA302 documents from the Revenue. Following that, they will get the accompanying tax year overview.

A list of your expected outgoings

It’s always a good idea to do some research and make a note of an estimate of your anticipated outgoings after you move house. You can work out an idea of how much the council tax and utility bills will be. In addition to that, you can work out your regular expenditures, such as food and drink. This will demonstrate how much disposable income you have available to pay your mortgage from.

When applying for a mortgage, things can get complicated very quickly when you are doing everything by yourself. This is why having a Mortgage Advisor in Hull on your side could prove extremely beneficial. You want do your best to impress your lender and show them that you have done all you can within your power to get everything ready for your mortgage application.
