There has been an increase in the amount of people buying their council homes according to statistics on Housing minister Mark Prisk’s blog.
A total of 5,942 homes were sold to council house tenants using the Right to Buy scheme between April 2012 and April 2013. This is more than double the number sold in the previous year and the highest number of sales since 2007.
In this year’s Budget the Government raised the maximum discount people can get off of a council property to £75,000, unless the property is in London, where the discount is now £100,000. There are also new rules to allow people living in a council property to buy their home after three years rather than five.
Rob Campbell, a director at Shelter told the BBC: “Short-term quick-fix announcements may have stolen some headlines, but the reality is that a generation’s hope for a home of their own is continuing to slip away because of our chronic shortage of affordable homes.”

There has been an increase in the amount of people using brokers to get a mortgage according to figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
During the first quarter of this year approximately 52% of remortgage borrowers took out their loan via a mortgage intermediary, compared to 48% in the fourth quarter of 2012.
The stats also show that 48% of home movers and 55% of first-time buyers went via a mortgage broker. This is up from 45% and 54% respectively in the fourth quarter.
Aaron Strutt, a broker at Trinity Financial, says: “It is not a really a surprise more people are turning to brokers, it can be a complicated process getting a mortgage. Especially if your financial position is more complex.
“We recently secured a mortgage offer for a first-time buyer in less than five days as he was in a rush to exchange contracts.”

Hanley Economic Building Society is offering one of the only 5% deposit two-year fixed rates mortgages in the market. Their 5.89% rate is available through Trinity Financial and it has a £200 arrangement fee.
There are very few banks and building societies offering strait forward 5% deposit mortgages as they typically require a family guarantee or a second charge on another property.
Woolwich still has their Family Springboard mortgage. The 5% deposit rate is fixed for three years at 4.69% and it has a £499 arrangement fee. Prior to completion a 10% deposit must be placed in a Barclays Helpful Start Account for a minimum of three years to act as a guarantee against negative equity.

The Mortgage Works, part of the Nationwide Building Society, has made a positive change to their buy-to-let mortgage range by allowing first-time landlords access to all of their buy-to-let rates, rather than a more expensive specific range.
First-time landlords will be able to access their mortgage rates, although not first-time buyers. Mortgage lenders expect borrowers to already own a residential property to show that they have a track recording of paying a mortgage and also to reduce the chance of borrowers living in the investment property.
The Mortgage Works is also introducing a wider choice of £995 arrangement fees and a new 4.29% five-year fixed at 65% LTV. It also has a £995 arrangement fee.

Investec Mortgages has launched a new mortgage designed for borrowers looking to buy a second home or pied-à-terre close to work.
The rate is fixed for two-years at 3.44% and it is available to those able to put down a 30% deposit. The arrangement fee is £999 for mortgages up to £500,000 and rises to £1,495 for mortgages up to £1 million.
Investec’s mortgages can potentially be taken on an interest-only basis.
Aaron Strutt, a broker at Trinity Financial, says: “Investec is not the only bank offering second home mortgages, although they are one of a select few. Many of the high street mortgage lenders will not offer second home mortgages because they are concerned it will be let out.”

Gross mortgage lending of £4.2 billion across 33,500 mortgages was advanced to buy-to-let landlords in the first quarter of 2013, according to the latest survey data from the Council of Mortgage Lenders. This compares with £4.6 billion the previous quarter and £3.7 billion in the first quarter of last year.
Nearly half of this lending was for remortgage, rather than house purchase. Nevertheless, the buy-to-let sector continued to grow and loan performance improved.
There are now around 1.46 million buy-to-let mortgages in the UK, accounting for 13% of the total estimated stock of 11.26 million mortgages.

Halifax has launched a range of large mortgage loans available to high-net worth borrowers looking to raise between £1 million and £5 million.
Trinity Financial has access to Halifax’s leading two-year tracker rate at 2.64%. It is available to borrowers with a 40% deposit and looking for a mortgage between £1 million and £5 million. For those with a 30% deposit, their 3.24% two-year fix is also very competitively priced. These rates have £1,499 arrangement fees.
Aaron Strutt, a broker at Trinity Financial, says: “It does seem like the high street mortgage lenders are battling to regain control of the large loan mortgage market and our clients are getting a wider choice of banks to choose from. Private banks always used to be a niche option and they are getting a lot more competition.
“There are a number of high street mortgage lenders looking to specifically lend over £1 million and some of their rates are incredibly low. Not all lenders are looking to lend over £500,000 and some even charge a separate arrangement fee for every £500,000 borrowed.”
