Mortgages

We have a dedicated financial team in to assist with any mortgage advice you may need! Click here for more details.

  • Mortgage Types: Fixed-rate mortgages offer stability with consistent payments, while adjustable-rate mortgages may start lower but fluctuate with market conditions.
  • Interest Rates: Securing a favorable interest rate can save you thousands over the life of your loan. It's worth shopping around and negotiating for the best rate.
  • Deposit Requirements: Typically, a higher deposit means better loan terms and lower monthly payments. Aim for at least 10-20% of the property's value.

First-Time Buyer Programs: A Helping Hand

The UK government offers several schemes to assist first-time buyers:

  • Help to Buy: Equity loans available for new-build homes, with only a 5% deposit required.
  • Shared Ownership: Purchase a share of a home and pay rent on the remaining portion, making it more affordable to get on the property ladder.
  • Lifetime ISA: Save for your first home tax-free, with the government adding a 25% bonus to your savings.

Preparing for Approval: Strengthening Your Application

A strong mortgage application can make all the difference. Here's how to enhance yours:

  • Credit Score: Check your credit report for errors and work on improving your score by paying bills on time and reducing debt.
  • Employment Stability: Lenders favor applicants with steady, reliable income. Aim for at least two years of consistent employment history.
  • Debt-to-Income Ratio: Lowering your debt-to-income ratio demonstrates to lenders that you can manage your finances responsibly.

What Our Customers Say...

Richard Kendall were marketing the property that we have recently purchased. Liz was looking after the sale and she kept me updated every step of the way with weekly calls. Any queries were dealt with quickly and efficiently and her communication between ourselves and the vendor was excellent. I had more contact from her than I did from the estate agent who was marketing my property. I would recommend anyone using Richard Kendall to sell a property requests for Liz to handle the sale!

This is now the second house that I have sold via Richard Kendall and to be quite honest I wouldn't consider using anyone else. Yes there are cheaper agents around that make you pay upfront, take all your own photos, arrange your own viewings etc but in my experience moving house is stressful enough without having to do all that as well. With Richard Kendall you can be confident that they are doing their upmost everyday to market your property via there many different media platforms to get you those viewings. The beauty is that they don't charge until completion either so you know it's in their interest to do everything they can to make that sale. Always professional, quick to respond and pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend them to anyone. Amanda and all of the team at the Normanton office were brilliant! I don't plan on moving anywhere else just yet but if I do I will be straight on to Richard Kendall once again. Thanks guys. Neil 22/03/2024
This is not the first time I have used Richard Kendall’s. Having moved plenty of times over the years I have always been so happy with the service I have received. The ladies looking after my property, Shireen and Catherine was amazing. They took care of everything for me, updating me with what was next at every stage. I cannot rave about this estate agent enough. I hopefully have found my forever home now, but highly recommend to anyone looking to move home. Sheila 22/03/2024
Friendly and professional service from beginning to end . Amanda always kept me updated and informed of progress and was brilliant. Thank you I can certainly recommend Richard Kendall’s. Annette 22/03/2024
Thank you to Liz Cooke who made sure that the sale of my house went through smoothly, and ensured buyer/seller/solicitors were all kept in the loop. Rowena 22/03/2024
Just want to say thanks to Amanda, Kelly and everyone at Richard Kendall for their great service. I have sold my property to my tenants who were first time buyers. I felt I could always get in touch with the office and get an update from Amanda. So as well as the great service at a good price this made the process easier. I would not hesitate to use Richard Kendall again in the future. Thanks again A Nixon 22/03/2024
Karen Marijewko has been great throughout the experience! Very straightforward and to the point in a lovely polite manor which made things very efficient. Always quick to respond and deal with any issues that came up. Really glad we had Karen to guide us through the process. Ryan 22/03/2024
We would like to say a great big thank you to Suzanne and Donna at Richard Kendall’s Ossett branch for their help with our house sale. They have gone above and beyond dealing with a number of glitches along the way, always keeping us well informed and ensuring us they would not give in until everything was sorted and true to their word they did P Carter 22/03/2024
I'd like to share my wonderful experience with Jessica Judd at Richard Kendall. From start to finish, Jessica made our renting process incredibly smooth. We truly appreciate Jessica's professionalism and clear communication. She was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had, and her attention to detail ensured that everything was taken care of efficiently. She was extremely helpful in getting all details negotiated with a landlord. Jessica was not only highly competent, but she also had a friendly approach. Her dedication to providing excellent service made all the difference in our renting experience. If you're looking for someone reliable, friendly, and knowledgeable to assist you with your rental needs, I can't recommend Jessica more. Anna 22/03/2024
