33% of All Mortgage Applications Are Ruled Out By Lenders

Experian statistics show that 33% of all mortgage applications are ruled out by lenders, due to mismatches in criteria.

To us, the statistics highlight the importance of customer care and their values when using a Mortgage Broker and the importance of getting it right the first time. We have experience dealing with customers going through a variety of circumstances. Don’t worry though, we’re here for you and will be with you every step of the way.

Experian also found out that only 3.5% of people searching for mortgages were eligible for deals on the market. However, just because you had seen these cheap deals online, it cannot guarantee that you will qualify for it. As our customer we will offer you full customer service, trying to find you the perfect deal.

Experian had shown that 22% of applicants started using price comparison websites to find the right mortgage. We recommend that if you happen to fall inside that demographic, remember that price comparison websites exclude the matching of a lender’s criteria. On top of that, the application can take weeks to process, not to mention the lender can dismiss your case. Ideally, speak to one of our members of staff. We’ll search 1000’s mortgage deals and picking the right ones for you, saving you time and money.

The analysis also showed that 27% were eligible for a mortgage but only for a reduced amount to meet the lender’s affordability requirements. Again, we find this happens all the time. A lender says you can borrow one amount but down the line find a reason to reduce the mortgage available.

It’s incredible the variance in the amount one lender will lend you compared to another. It will save you much aggravation in the long run to use a Broker, and it may sometimes cost slightly more when you have to factor in a Broker fee but most customers who utilise the service feel it’s well worth it to ensure a quick and easy process.
