Welcome to our latest blog. Summer has been in full swing here and we have now had great weather for several weeks. There are lots of activities that happen during the summer months and its always great to support your local businesses.


This time of year, we are noticing a larger number of people investing towards a property. This may be a change to the current house or a house to rent. Whatever the reason may be, you might need help financing in the way of a mortgage.


So, what is a mortgage? A mortgage is a loan taken out to buy a property. The loan is secured against the property until it is fully paid off. If you can’t keep up with repayments, the mortgage provider can repossess the house so its extremely vital to crunch the numbers and know if a mortgage is right for you.


Many factors are taken in to consideration to approve a mortgage. Proving your income is usually the deciding factor as the lender needs to know you can repay the mortgage. Here at Cross Accounting we provide our clients with their SA302 to prove their earnings. You can obtain the last three years proof of earnings if you file for self-assessment through your HMRC’s online account, with a tax year overview.   Mortgage companies like to see you are on time when paying your taxes.


Many banks have an online calculator to estimate the interest payment you will need to make, it does help you budget for the new property.


We are authorised and can help obtain a mortgage, please do get in touch to discuss your situation and see how we can help you. A house is one of the largest single purchase you’ll likely make so you want to take care and get it right from the beginning.
