Is your mortgage still on interest only?
From April 2014 Lenders have now tightened criteria for customers wanting interest only and more importantly existing customers who want to review their options or fix their rates. These customers are being forced onto the lenders standard variable rate (SVR) typically from 3.99% - 5.49%. So you don’t become a mortgage prisoner on SVR when interest rates can only increase read on.......
With an interest only mortgage you only pay off the interest on a loan, not the capital. For example if you borrowed £100,000, and pay £500 per month you will still always owe the same amount, with the hope your investments perform well enough to eventually clear the debt. If you do not have a repayment strategy is downsizing still an option?
Those on repayment mortgages, however, can switch to top deals such as a two-year fix at 1.99% as long as they have a deposit or equity of at least 40%.
Now is the perfect time to review your options with us because of the current uptrend in property values and lender interest rates. This year we have seen a significant increase in our re mortgaging advice and business. Especially from existing clients and clients referring us to family and friends to secure them all time low fixed products…

Oxford social news this month
It has been a busy social calendar this last month starting with the finals for the Young Enterprise Scheme, a charity we support on the board and this last year as a business mentor in a local Oxford school. Our school won the wild card entrance from the Area Finals held at Harley Davidson through to the Regional finals held at the Said Business School.
Then on Friday 20th June we attended as guests the Oxford Business Awards 2014 held at the Four Pillars Hotel in Sandford. We would like to say a big thank you to all the sponsors for making it such a brilliant evening and huge congratulations to all those that took part. It was wonderful to see so many familiar Oxford faces in the 500+ audience of old and potentially new clients.
