Buying your very first property in Leeds or anywhere can be a pretty daunting experience. There is a lot to learn in a short period of time. The biggest issue in the current market is your deposit with a first time buyer mortgage. Gone are the days of 100% plus mortgages. Some might say that's a good thing. Now, unless you have a guarantor, you will need a minimum of 10% as your deposit.
If you are a first time buyer in Leeds it is important to consider using an independent mortgage broker. Your broker will guide you through the buying process, helping you to avoid the common pitfalls. As well as liasing with the lender the mortgage broker will be a point of contact for your solicitor as well as the estate agent and others.
Another area your mortgage broker will advise you on is protecting your home and mortgage. There are various insurances that do this task and they can be very confusing so it makes sense to take advice in this area. We advise on insurance from a number of different providers
