Question — I am a first timer buyer – can I get a mortgage?

Answer — Lenders that provide first time buyer mortgages will want to review:

  • Your general credit profile – if you have borrowed before on credit cards or loans, then how have you conducted yourself. ie have you always paid the lender the right amount and on time.
  • Job History – How long have you been in your job or what is your work history. Is it stable, long term or have you flitted from job to job. Are you full time permanent, Part time or on zero hours contract.
  • Affordability – How is your income made up- Basic salary, Bonus, Commission or overtime. Do you receive any long term benefits such as working tax credits, child benefit, child tax credits.
  • Other commitments – Do you have any credit card debts, car or other loans, hire purchase, pension payments, student loans or maintenance payments
