Let’s talk home loans

A home loan is likely to be your biggest monthly outgoing and overall financial commitment, so having the right home loan and protection in place is essential.

Our home loan brokers are fully qualified to carry out affordability tests to make sure you can afford to make your repayments over the course of the home loan term. Once we’ve found you a home loan that’s right for your circumstances.

Even if you’ve already taken out your home loan and you’re worried there’s a chance you might not be able to afford your home loan repayments, you can get in touch with your lender. They’ll be able to come to a new arrangement for you. For example, you might decide to extend the term of your home loan in order to reduce your monthly repayments, or you might decide to take a home loan holiday in the short-term, and pause the payments.

Seeking help

There are various different reasons why you might be struggling with your finances right now. For instance, you might have lost your job, have a spending habit, or perhaps you’re ill and can’t work. Whatever the reason, having money worries can be a cause of constant anxiety, so it’s important to reach out and get help from professionals.

Being mindful

With a greater emphasis now more than ever before on the importance of looking after your mental health, there are plenty of things you can do to try and help calm your mind when it’s all getting a bit too much.

Mindfulness apps are a great place to start and there are plenty of free ones to choose from. Even if you take ten minutes out of your day to plug your headphones in and zone out for a bit, you might just find this helps keep your head clear.

There are other things you can do to try and recoup a bit of “me time” in your day. Lunchtime walks, yoga, reading, running a hot bath and lighting a candle are all great ways to unwind and recharge your batteries.
