The costs involved in buying your first home or a new home
We want to draw attention to the major costs involved in moving house for those planning their budget.
At Saffron Building Society, we understand that sometimes mortgages can seem very confusing. But when stripped back to the basics, they’re quite easy to understand. That is why we have created a guide to mortgages that will help you make sense of the transaction you may be about to enter into and a step-by-step guide to applying for a mortgage and how your Saffron Mortgage Adviser will help you every step of the way.
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
