Don’t at­tempt to hide any­thing about your fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion. It is al­ways bet­ter to be up front and hon­est about your out­go­ings.

Lenders ap­pre­ci­ate a clear pic­ture about how much you spend, or ex­pect to spend in the fu­ture. They are rarely in­ter­ested in your fam­ily’s credit score – un­less you have joint fi­nances. If you feel a fam­ily mem­ber, part­ner or house­mate’s sit­u­a­tion may dam­age your ap­pli­ca­tion, keep your fi­nances com­pletely sep­a­rate.

Many peo­ple be­lieve hav­ing no his­tory of credit is a good thing. That is cer­tainly not the case when you ap­ply for a mort­gage.

Al­though you should never get in debt to build up a credit his­tory, by tak­ing out a credit card and us­ing it reg­u­larly you will be­gin to build a credit his­tory.

If you aren’t al­ready, reg­is­ter for the elec­toral roll as you’re un­likely to get credit with­out it. Just launched to the mar­ket is Tay­lor Wim­pey’s new Tem­plars Rise de­vel­op­ment in Med­way.

Many of the first re­lease of homes sold im­me­di­ately af­ter the re­cent launch.

Ja­son Stokes of Tay­lor Wim­pey said: “We are al­ready re­ceiv­ing an in­cred­i­ble amount of in­ter­est in this beau­ti­fully de­signed de­vel­op­ment, which of­fers a tran­quil, tree-lined set­ting close to the bustling cen­tre of Strood.”

Each of the new homes at Tem­plars Rise will be com­pleted to a high-stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion, in­clud­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient cen­tral heat­ing, dou­ble glaz­ing and a fit­ted kitchen with in­te­grated oven, hob and hood.
