We are fortunate in Leeds, as we still have affordable housing in reputable areas available to First Time Buyers so that they can take that first step onto the property ladder for a reasonable price. For example, a 5% or 10% deposit is much more feasible in Leeds, than other places across Yorkshire.

Most Frequent First Time Buyer Mortgage Scenarios

After having worked with hundreds of First Time Buyers in Leeds, we found that the same scenarios kept popping up that our customers needed our fantastic help. As part of our free initial First Time Buyer mortgage consultation, we can look at a large variety of things, and these can include:

  • Working out your monthly budget based on your property price
  • Producing a mortgage agreement in principle so that you can back up any offers you make with the estate agent
  • Completing your mortgage application through to getting you a mortgage offer
  • Explaining the different types of property surveys that are available to you
  • Recommending a local competitively priced Solicitor with high service standards (if required)
  • Running through your mortgage offer(s) to ensure that all your details are correct
  • Also recommending any associated insurances with your new mortgage (if required)


Have you Run into any Mortgage Hurdles so far?

We often find that clients who call us had some difficulty one way or another with their bank during the mortgage process; this could be due to multiple reasons:

  • Type of property getting bought.
  • Your income structure and employment type, specifically self-employed.
  • I was buying off or with a family member.
  • Buying undervalue.
  • Bank refused or won’t lend enough.
  • You are purchasing off your landlord.


If this happens to be the case, it is essential that you don’t keep trying loads of different lenders without being 100% sure of their strict lending criteria. Can hurt your credit score and may lower your chances of getting a mortgage altogether.

What our customers say

Common mortgage

To help demonstrate that you are creditworthy and assess your affordability for a mortgage, we recommend getting an Agreement in Principle ready before viewing properties in Leeds. At the very latest, you should obtain one before making an offer to assist your bargaining position and show any seller that you are ready to proceed should they accept your offer. We are typically able to obtain an agreement in principle within 24 hours.

Suppose you are looking to put down a deposit for a property in Leeds. In that case, most High Street lenders will ask for a minimum deposit of 5%, and others might ask for a higher amount depending on your circumstances, e.g. If you have had any previous credit problems.

Despite having shown any credit problems in the past, the good news is you may be able to get a mortgage, but it means you may be required to put down a higher deposit, e.g. 10 – 15% of the property purchase price.

Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts, you are able to get a mortgage. Most Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas others are known to go off your net profit.

It’s usually three payslips for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for self-employed. You will also need to produce proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements.

Our free consultation typically lasts up to an hour or so. We can turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours. A formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average.

Your free mortgage consultation in Leeds will last round about one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the mortgage.

As your mortgage broker in Leeds, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check is then required for an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can always be refreshed.

It may be possible to get a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or Home Improvements. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property if you’re wanting to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.
