The Active Framework


Preparing your accounts and income figures is the first and most important step, along with working out your budget to make sure your mortgage is affordable both now and in the future.


Every lender assesses income differently, so with the right information you can not only make sure your income is presented correctly, but also identify when the ideal time to apply is.


There are many different products on the market, so it’s vital that you understand the options and choose the right one. Knowing what documents you need will allow you to make a comprehensive and persuasive application.


Hunting for the right property can be tricky and Gary has some valuable pointers to help you find the right one for you, with regard to type and location, and from the perspective of ensuring you can make money from it.


Once you’ve submitted an application, the next stage is ‘full and final acceptance’: your mortgage offer. The book takes you through exchange and completion, and advises on how to speed up the solicitor’s part of the process.


Your home can also be a key element in developing your business, enabling you to make money through property. Gary sets out how you can benefit from investing in property, from improving your own home or going into partnership with others on new ventures.
