Top Tips for Home Buyers

Think about the full cost of moving

One-off costs like stamp duty, solicitors’ fees and surveys can all add up while other ongoing bills will affect your budget.

Do your homework on mortgages

From trackers to interest only, take your time to understand which mortgage is right for you.

Brush up on your local knowledge

To make the best offer possible get to know the local property market – what’s selling, where, and for how much.

Top Tips for Renters

Meet local property agents

Find local agents or landlords in the areas you’d like to rent who are likely to have the best local knowledge.

Consider the cost of utilities

Research the average cost of energy and water bills to include in your affordability comparison of different properties.

Landlords may check new tenants’ credit reports

Landlords may review credit report data when you make a rental application to check your details are correct and look out for any adverse financial information.

 

Once you’re clued up, take a look at your Experian Credit Report. Find out what you might need to improve before making a mortgage or rental application and put yourself in the best possible position to succeed and secure your new home.
