    Where to go for an AIP/DIP?

    Where to go for an AIP/DIP? 16th Mar 17 at 2:04 PM
    Hi all

    Where do I go to get a DIP/AIP?

    Our house is getting valued in the next few weeks with a view of it going on the market depending on the valuation etc.

    We will be looking at properties in the 165k region with a 10% deposit.

    Wife is keen to get ours on the market to enable us to be in a better position for offering on properties as we are looking at a very particular area to buy and properties don't come up for sale often.

    My worry is whether or not we will be approved for a mortgage therefore I would be keen to have a DIP/AIP in place sooner rather than later.

    Where should I go for this and will these affect credit files or are these soft searches? We bank with Lloyds however their rates aren't great.

    Financial Scenario is as follows:

    Combined salary of 62.5k
    Wife Car Loan - 178 per month (23 months remaining)
    My Car PC - 389 per month (28 months remaining)
    Wife CC Balance - 2.5k
    My CC Balance - 0
    Childcare Costs - circa 680 per month (however we both receive maximum amount of childcare vouchers 243 each per month therefore 194 paid via cash). These costs will reduce dramatically with effect from Easter 2018 with the provision of 30 free hours.

    Any advice please.

    Try speaking to a mortgage broker or you can do AIP's online and some banks only do soft credit checks.
    Finally going to be a homeowner
