Mortgage & Protection News – Winter 2017/18

It seems that “Happy New Year” has been firmly replaced by “Is it still January?”

Why not try some light reading to ease you through January’s final torturous days in the form of the latest issue of our seasonal newsletter?  There’s lots to catch up on including a special feature for First Time Buyers, including Stamp Duty relief.

Featured in this issue:

  • Stamp Duty Relief – savings of up to £5,000 now available for First Time Buyers purchasing property up to £500,000.
  • Are you one of the 3-4 million paying a lender’s Standard Variable Rate? – The average SVR is still 4.56% and with mortgage rates so low, it could be worth reviewing and looking for a new deal.
  • Cherish & Protect – so you’ve got the mortgage you needed but is it protected?  Life Insurance, Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection should all be considered when taking on a new mortgage.
  • First Time Buyers – we’ve seen a surge in FTB activity this month.  With a number of schemes on offer, taking professional advice is key.

If you know someone hoping to get on the ladder this year then why not share this with them?
