    credit card for house purchase?

    credit card for house purchase? 6th Sep 17 at 12:31 PM
    I found a good house to buy (not so locally) but close enough to warrant a second house purchase, the house is purchasable at £30,000. I have £7500 already so I only really need £22,500 to fund this purchase. (I have £1k for legal also).

    Can anyone tell me what card I should have to be able to fund a house purchase? That the balance doesn't need to be paid off in a month and has a 0% interest period? with the monthly payments low?

    I'm looking to pay back £250-£300/month including interest, hoping someone has anything that can help me with.
    1/12/16 - £152,599.00
    11/11/17 - £145,990.00
    Two Credit agreements to pay off - £13653! (inc interest).
    Sofa (DFS) (0%)£923/£923 - Paid off 7th November!
    Barclays Boiler (18.9%!)£400/£3021.36
    Barclays Car (5.99%)£0/£8,832.37

    Amex don't do cash transfers, even on offer. They certainly won't be offering 0% as they simply do not like cash advances period.

    There is no Amex card with a 0% (or lower interest) cash advance/money transfer offer.

    The best bets are Barclaycard & MBNA for low interest cash advances/money transfers, but no-one will offer the amount you are looking for individually!

    I'd add Virgin to that list. 2 or 3 money transfer cards could do it for many people, but the issues and additional debt highlighted so far make it very unlikely that the op would qualify.

    Why do you have £7500 to put towards a house when you have £15k of debt ? Look for a second house when you have no debt and spare cash.

    It depends on what interest rate that £15k is. If it's on 0% credit cards then it's not bad to have savings. I'm not overpaying on my mortgage anymore because the rate is so low & instead I am saving

    If he thinks he can get 20k on a 0% then I don't see why he wouldn't have the £15k on 0% too.
