It’s very common for us to recommend to our clients that they review their financial position regularly, which helps them stay informed of market changes and how these may apply to their own personal situation.
Recently we worked with a couple who had an investment property with one bank, and their home with another. In most cases this is the best way to have things set-up, as I’m sure you’re all aware how fond we are here at KPM about the “Split-Banking” strategy for mortgages.
In the current low interest rate environment, we’re seeing a lot of clients look at repaying debt quite aggressively (paying above the minimum or making ‘additional’ payments to their mortgage on a regular basis). There can however be some downsides to this when applying for new lending, and I’d like to show you how to get around these so that you’re achieving your desired result, and also keeping the bank happy.
