One Year On

Posted on Friday 22nd May, 2015

One year has passed since the Mortgage Market Review, and we thought we should take a look at the impact it’s had on homebuyers and the general market. Since last April we’ve noticed a lot of movement caused by the stricter criteria for lending.

Introduced to make the market more secure and stable for borrowers and lenders alike, the MMR has certainly left its mark.

Who’s been affected?

Many borrowers are still securing mortgages, but with the new rules making irresponsible lending very difficult, the numbers of new borrowing has fallen – as was expected.

In the effort to make sure people can afford to borrow, many potential borrowers have been frozen out of the mortgage market by lenders. These include older borrowers and the self-employed. Getting a mortgage was never easy for these groups, but since the tougher rules came in, the struggle has intensified.

Without predictable monthly salaries, self-employed people are finding it very difficult to secure funds. As for older borrowers, the changing economy means many can only buy later in life, yet the lenders seem to be erring on the side of caution, and using the MMR to decline such applicants.

Using a Mortgage Broker therefore makes sense in order to ensure that you receive the appropriate advice in whatever circumstances you are in.
