How much deposit do I need for a right to buy mortgage?

Lenders will often use the discount provided by the council as your deposit. In some cases though, there are lenders out there who will require you to put down an additional amount as a deposit, on top of the discount. This can be the case if you’ve been struggling with any particular credit problems. Our dedicated and hard working Mortgage Advisors in Doncaster will do their best to answer your right to buy deposit questions.

How does the free initial mortgage consultation work?

Your free initial mortgage consultation in Doncaster will last roughly one hour. We will then be on our way to recommending a mortgage for you, where you have no obligation for you to proceed. If you’d rather not take it and step back for a time, you have every right to do so.

How does the process work?

Your mortgage advisor in Doncaster will carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal mortgage needs, before recommending the most suitable mortgage for your situation. A credit check will then be required in order for you to obtain an Agreement in Principle, which we are able to help with. Once you have provided the lener with all the relevant documentation, and you have had a valuation of the property completed, a formal mortgage offer can then be issued.

When should I obtain an Agreement in Principle?

To avoid finding yourself disappointed when viewing and making offers on properties, we recommend you obtain an Agreement in Principle ahead of time. At the very latest, we recommend that you obtain one prior to making an offer, as this will assist your bargaining position.

How long does an Agreement in Principle last?

An Agreement in Principle will usually last for between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender that you are with. If your Agreement in Principle expires, you can easily have it refreshed.

Can I get a second mortgage in Doncaster?

You may have the option of taking out a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or any potential Home Improvements. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property to use on yourself, for a family member, a holiday home or even a Buy to Let.

Can I get a mortgage with previous credit problems?

If you’ve had credit problems previously, you may still have a chance at getting a mortgage, but you may possibly be required to put down a higher deposit than for the property than you might have if you had with good credit. This can often be 15% of the property purchase price.

I’m Self-Employed in Doncaster, can I get a mortgage?

What documents will I need to send?

You’ll generally be required to send three payslips if you are a standard employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for self-employed. You will also need to produce proof of ID, proof of address and the previous 3 months’ bank statements.

How long does the process take?

The free mortgage consultation that you receive when getting in touch, will typically last up to an hour. We can help you obtain an agreement in principle within 24 hours of this consultation, with a formal mortgage offer taking on average about three weeks.
