How Can a Commercial Mortgage Advisor Help?

This was fuelled by the government’s introduction of the Stamp Duty holiday. People now desire more space or simply just a change of scenery due to many months working from home. However, mortgage lenders tightened up and became much stricter with their lending criteria. Worries about the financial security of people on furlough or claiming government grants made it harder for many to get a mortgage – particularly for those who owned their own business. As a result, more and more buyers are struggling to buy homes. A commercial mortgage advisor can help guide you through the ever-changing housing industry.  

Criteria versus Demand

As we ease out of restrictions and government support begins to cease, we’re seeing lenders become less restrictive with their criteria. They’re beginning to ease the difficulties in obtaining a mortgage. But housing prices are still on the rise because the demand is still there. People haven’t been able to move during the pandemic. As a result, they have spent time and money improving their own homes but are now looking to sell up and move on.   A female mortgage advisor sat at a desk typing on a laptop, next to her is a model of a small house with a red roof
