First Time Buyers
Buying your first home can be a time of excitement and celebration, but it’s also an experience that many people find daunting and with so many first time mortgages out there it can be difficult to know where to start.
At Primary FS, we understand first time mortgages and the Lenders that specialise in these. We will provide you with a dedicated case handler who will liaise with yourselves, the Lender and even your Solicitors ensuring smooth transition from the moment your offer is accepted to the moment the keys are in your hand. With years of experience in helping people own their first home, Primary FS will give you all the guidance and reassurance you need to get you on the first step of the ladder.
We find that people remortgage their homes for a number of reasons.
Some want to reduce their monthly repayments or reduce other debts. Others want to change the terms of their mortgage to make it more flexible and suit their current needs. Others may want to release equity that has built up in their home over the years.
The process of remortgaging may seem awkward and time consuming but at Primary FS we will be by your side throughout the process. Your dedicated case handler will liaise with yourselves, your new Lender and your Solicitor to make the process of switching to your new Lender smooth and in perfect time before your current rate expires and your mortgage rate reverts to the current variable.
Because we know that sometimes life isn’t straightforward, we will also help you find the right remortgage product when your credit score is less than perfect. County Court Judgements and defaults are never a reason to avoid speaking to us as mortgage criteria is constantly changing and more and more Lenders are accommodating adverse credit. We are able to find you a remortgage even if you’re self-employed or retired – it’s always worth asking the question.

It is a misconception that self-employed workers find it difficult to find a mortgage product to enable them to buy or remortgage their home.
In theory, self-employed borrowers have access to exactly the same range of mortgage products as everyone else but you will need to be able to prove you have the income necessary to make the repayments on the loan for which you are applying. Typically, Lender’s require to have at least two years’ worth of Accounts, SA302s and tax year overviews.
Your Financial Advisor will tailor a mortgage that is right for you and advise you on any aspect of the Lender’s criteria especially around your self-employment income so you know exactly what the Lender would need.
Self Build Mortgages
The world of self build mortgages can be daunting. At Primary, we are in a unique position to look at things from a Lender’s perspective which helps us to understand how these mortgage products are crafted.
If you are not fortunate enough to be able to build a home using savings, or with the funds from the sale of your previous home, you will need to borrow some money to finance your build. This is where a self build mortgage will come in handy.
While every self build mortgage lender will have its own specific set of criteria to be satisfied, most will require copies of the build plans and planning permission to be provided to their valuer on or prior to inspection of the land and throughout the property build stages.
Our specialist Self Build Advisor will be there every step of the way for you to answer any of questions or concerns and to liaise with the Lender or any other third parties. At Primary FS, we thrive on the challenge of being able to help our clients complete on their dream home and look forward to them returning time after time to remortgage their property.
Most of us think nothing of insuring or indeed finding the best possible insurance for the home, the car, the holiday, the pets or even the fridge and freezer, but very few of us take the time to have the best possible insurance for the most important things – ourselves and our family.
There are not many things in Life that are guaranteed, but unfortunately death is one of those guaranteed events. Life Insurance is an invaluable way of safeguarding the livelihood of your dependants after your death.
The worst case scenario, which unfortunately occurs more often than it needs to, is for one partner to die, and for the other to be forced to give up the family home which they have worked so hard to maintain and keep.
Insurance against death isn’t the only form of protection we can help with.
