Mortgage jargon can be confusing to first-time buyers

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

When you consider the amount of the jargon used by some in the industry concerning mortgages, property and the related legal aspects of a purchase, it is, on reflection, not surprising that many first-time buyers then struggle to fully understand the process, and data recently released by mortgage lender Aldermore certainly seems to confirm this. 

Here at Caboodle Finance, we have always recognised that first-time buyers do not understand all the terminology associated with arranging a mortgage or buying a property, which is why our dedicated advisers always strive to give clear and professional mortgage advice throughout.

First Time Buyers Missing Out?

According to the Aldermore report, some of the most confusing terms are things like ‘starter home initiative’, ‘Help to Buy equity loan’ and ‘shared ownership’. That being so, this raises the possibility that some eligible first-timers may be missing out on the various benefits on offer from those home buying schemes that do provide additional help to those wishing to enter the property market.

Add into the mix the difficulty that some first-time buyers experience in raising a reasonable deposit, it is not surprising that many simply don’t know how to get started.

Educating First Time Buyers

Although the industry does need to do more to educate first time buyers, here at Caboodle Finance we strive to ensure that our customers always understand what their options are when it comes to buying a property and raising a mortgage. 

We know that buying a first home can sometimes be a frustrating and challenging process and that is why we work alongside our clients to not only provide the best mortgage advice, but also to help deal with associated third parties such as estate agents and solicitors to ensure that the best outcome is achieved wherever possible.

Your initial consultation is free and you are under no obligation to proceed with a mortgage we recommend. There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The exact fee will depend on your circumstances and may be reduced depending on the loan amount and any commission we receive from the lender. It is estimated that the fee will be £595, but it may range from £495 to 1% of the amount you borrow. The fee is only payable on completion and can normally be added to the mortgage. This will be discussed and agreed with you before you make an application. Please ask for a personalised illustration.

Secured loan rates from 3.95% APRC, although we have plans available up to 29.9% APRC which allow us to assist customers with the most severe credit problems. The overall cost for comparison is 7.65% APRC. For secured loans a broker fee up to 10% of the loan amount borrowed may be payable on successful completion. A lender fee may also apply.
