By your Side, Through the Whole Process

As a First Time Buyer going through your first mortgage process, things can all seem a little stressful and overwhelming. It’s our job to try and prevent this from happening by providing you with support and guidance throughout the whole process.


We have over two decades of experience working with First Time Buyers and helping them obtain their first mortgage. Our mission is to apply everything we’ve learnt to your case and help you secure your own mortgage.

How Much Deposit Will I Need?

Typically, the minimum deposit required is 5% of the property price, however, it can vary depending on different factors. Lenders will look at your credit score, personal and financial situation and the price of the property.


If you’re struggling to build up your deposit for the property that you want to make an offer on, you could try using one of the government’s Own Your Home schemes to give you a boost. For example, if you have a 5% deposit but need more to get accepted, the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme could be perfect for you. With a 5% deposit, the government will give you an extra 20% boost, making a 25% total deposit. This 20% is not a gift, it is strictly a loan and will need repaying.

Every customer can benefit from a free mortgage appointment at Cambridgemoneyman; you can book online too!


As an experienced Mortgage Broker in Cambridge, we can also prepare a mortgage agreement in principle within 24-hours of your mortgage appointment. This will be handy when it comes to making offers on properties and supporting your application.

Are You Currently Renting?

Depending on your circumstances, taking out a mortgage could be cheaper than renting. Have you ever thought about asking your landlord whether he would consider selling the property to you? We’ve seen applicants do this many times before.

You will get asked a series of questions to help build up a profile; this will help them pick out a mortgage deal tailored to you.

Secondly, once the consultation is over, a credit check will carry out, and this will help you obtain an Agreement in Principle. Granted, if you are okay with everything and happy to proceed, we will then ask for some documentation to help strengthen your application.

Lastly, with your Agreement in Principle, submitted evidential documentation and a comprehensive mortgage offer that you’re happy to continue with, you can move onto the last stage – mortgage application submission!

The time scale can alter depending on the Lender but on average, an Agreement in Principle will likely last around 30-90 days.

Yes, the good news is it is possible to obtain a mortgage as a self-employed worker depending on circumstances. First. You need to produce at least one year’s accounts.

To work out the maximum mortgage amount you can borrow, Lenders will use your salary + divided, whereas others might go off your net profit.

Whether you’re applying for a mortgage or looking to remortgage, there are a few documents lenders will always want to see during the process. You will get asked to provide some evidential documents to back up your mortgage application. For example, you’ll need things like ID, bank statements, payslips.

Once your consultation gets concluded, we will try to turn around an Agreement in Principle within 24-hours. An Agreement in Principle is essential when making an offer on a property, as estate agents and sellers often accept those who already have an AIP than those who haven’t.

The final step is to submit your mortgage application and wait for a formal mortgage offer. Usually, this will take about 2 -4 weeks – provided the process goes smoothly, and your application is relatively straightforward.

Our Mortgage Advisors in Cambridge job is to gather personal, financial and financial mortgage situation information from you during your free mortgage consultation because they need to build an in-depth understanding of your mortgage needs to try and find you the most suitable mortgage.

Once your consultation is complete, your Mortgage Advisor in Cambridge will begin searching for mortgage products on your behalf to match your personal and financial situation, saving you time and money.

We recommend you get an Agreement in principle before viewing any houses in Cambridge. Doing so may increase your chance of your offer getting accepted and will put yourself in front of other buyers who don’t have an Agreement in Principle in place.

The deposit all depends on certain factors. For example, depending on your credit history and the lender you are using, they might only require a 5% deposit of the property price.

Other factors come into play, such as if you fall into the lower credit score bracket, you may expect to put down a 10-15% deposit.
