It is very important that when considering a mortgage you work out how much you can afford. While there is a greater onus on mortgage lenders to lend responsibly you will also need to consider what level of borrowing is appropriate for your circumstances.

In simple terms lenders will base how much you can borrow on a multiple of your income (joint income for couples). However there are a number of factors that will determine what you can borrow from a mortgage company.

Since April 2014 UK mortgage lenders are required to apply strict rules to what they can lend to you based on your personal circumstances. In assessing affordability lenders will not only look at your income but also your outgoings e.g. monthly household bills. Lenders will look at your bank statements typically over the last 3 months to determine whether you can afford the mortgage you are looking for.

Many mortgage deals have initial periods where preferential terms are offered and borrowing costs are lower than normal – when this discounted period ends make sure you can afford any reasonable increase that may kick in. In assessing affordability lenders will take into account your income and outgoings and your current employment history. In calculating disposable income your total income will be taken into account less other debts you may have and living expenses. The lender considering your mortgage application will have their own method of assessing affordability but it makes sense to do your own budgeting calculations to ensure the monthly repayment requirement is well within your budget.

In calculating how much you can borrow the lender will apply a maximum amount you can borrow called the loan to value of the property (LTV). E.g. If you are a first time buyer the lender may stipulate a LTV of 95% which means they are prepared to lend up to 95% of the value of the property (this will be assessed by the mortgage company’s own appointed surveyor). In this scenario the first time buyer would be required to put down at least 5% towards the property purchase. The mortgage rate deals offered by a lender will be affected by the level of deposit that can be put down.

Generally speaking the higher the deposit that can be put down the better the mortgage rate can be achieved.

Buying a property can be an expensive exercise and it is important that you are aware of all the costs that come into play when buying your home.

The costs relating to your mortgage will be set out clearly by the lender in what is known as the “Keyfacts” document provided to you.

These costs may include:

  • Arrangement Fee – Charged by the lender to cover the administration costs of processing your mortgage. This will vary from deal to deal. You normally have the option of adding this fee to your mortgage but this will increase your cost of borrowing over the mortgage term.
  • Mortgage broker Fee – If you have used a mortgage broker to help arrange your mortgage for you then a fee may be charged which will be outlined in your keyfacts document.
  • Mortgage Account Fee – Applied by the lender at outset when you first take out your mortgage to cover the set up and termination costs of your mortgage.
  • Valuation Fee – Charged by the lender to value your property in assessing the value for mortgage purposes.
  • Re-inspection fees – If a lender has required you to make agreed repairs to the property a re-inspection may be required
  • Higher lending charge – If you are borrowing a high loan to value the lender may decide they wish to insure the possibility that you may need to sell your home and this results in a loss.
  • Early redemption charges – If you pay off part or all of your mortgage earlier than expected the lender may charge you a fee – this will be covered in your keyfacts document.
  • Mortgage exit fee – Paid to your lender when you repay your mortgage.
  • Insurance costs – as part of your mortgage you may be encouraged to take out insurance either by a broker or the lender to cover buildings insurance and other optional insurance such as mortgage life insurance.

1. If you are unsure of your mortgage options seek mortgage advice from a FCA regulated independent mortgage broker

2. Maximise the deposit you can put down on your property to benefit from the most competitive Mortgage interest deals.

3. Read the Lender Mortgage key facts document carefully to understand the costs being applied by the lender.

4. Ensure that you are comfortable that mortgage repayments (whether repayment or interest only) fall within your budget.

5. Remember that mortgage discounts are temporary and borrowing rates may go up when the discount period ends.

6. If you are remortgaging ask your current lender what deal they can offer you as well as shopping around.

7. If you lender’s valuation of your property is too low ask them to reconsider and provide supporting evidence from the sale price of other properties in your area.

8. For interest only mortgages ensure that you plan carefully how to pay off your mortgage and check at regular intervals that your repayment strategy is on track.

9. At the time of writing interest rates are at record lows. While borrowing is cheap now this situation may change so factor in a rise in interest rates into your budgeting calculations.

10. Consider mortgage unemployment insurance in the event that you lose your job. This may provide useful breathing space in covering mortgage repayments while you look for a new job.

First Time Buyer 1 Year Mortgage Deals

As a first time buyer, finding a 1 year mortgage deal may appear to be a daunting prospect with so many different policies available. However, it is important to remember that by conducting suitable research and comparing mortgages, first time borrowers may be able to find a much better deal from providers.

Before searching for an appropriate 1 year mortgage deal, first time buyers should carefully consider exactly what type of repayment deal they will require. The following is a brief explanation of each:

Repayment

Repayment mortgages are generally more popular due to the high level of security that they provide customers with. Customers will be expected to repay a portion of the initial loan, with an added interest rate included on top, until the entire mortgage has been repaid in full.

Once this has been fully repaid, most customers are generally guaranteed to own the property outright.

Interest Only

Customers repaying an interest only mortgage will only be expected to repay the rate of interest during the course of the loan, making payments that much easier initially.

However, it should be remembered that the borrower will still be expected to repay the entire borrowed amount at the end of their mortgage. Customers must have invested or saved enough money to make this payment at the end, or will risk losing the property.

Once this decision has been made, a suitable interest deal should be selected by first time buyers, a 1 year mortgage policy may come with a number of strengths and weaknesses. Here are some examples of the various different types of 1 year interest rate deals that are available:

  • Fixed rate mortgages
  • Tracker mortgages
  • Variable interest rate mortgages

If you are searching for a suitable 1 year mortgage deal, you may wish to see our mortgage comparisons tables above for more information on the various offers that are available.
