The Importance of Changing Your Address in Newcastle

Address Scenarios Mortgage Advice in Newcastle

As a general rule of thumb, the fewer addresses tied to your name and accounts the better, when it comes to your credit score and applying for mortgages. Many First-Time Buyers in Newcastle and Home Movers in Newcastle feel like they are becoming savvier and utilising their previous and current addresses to their advantage.

We see it as a fairly common practice for applicants, where they may have moved out of their parents address into rented accommodation and happen to think it is a great idea to leave their bank statements, credit card and Electoral Roll information registered at one of the addresses that they previously lived at.

Whilst this sounds like an ideal situation for some people, the truth is that it is now a flawed strategy. Almost every single time, if you have moved to a new address, there will be some record of this, somewhere on your credit report.

This could be from a delivery address when you have ordered something online or a car and, or home insurance search, amongst various other things that may be tied to an address.

We would say that by a country mile, the best strategy for you, if you are thinking about taking out a mortgage, is to get all of your accounts, cards, accounts and electoral roll changed over to your new address. Keep everything consistent and accurate to one another.

When you update your address on your credit file and electoral roll, ensure you double-check the date in and date out. If you do happen to make a mistake with either of these dates, it may look like you are living in two places simultaneously. Correcting your addresses and dates is a more open and honest way of trying to apply for a mortgage with a lender.
