First-Time-Buyer? A Better Year Ahead
According to the latest figures from Aldermore, 2021 was a difficult year for many first-time-buyers as they saw their mortgage applications rejected by banks and building societies. In fact, 75% of first-time-buyers saw their application rejected last year compared to 62% in 2020.

This test ensures that buyers can still meet their monthly repayments should rates rise – which they have been predicted to do. The affordability rules were introduced following the financial crash of 2008 […]
