Everystep financial are pleased to be able to offer Mortgage Capacity Assessments and reports.
What is a Mortgage Capacity Assessment?
A mortgage capacity assessment and thereafter written report is commonly used during separation or divorce. The report is often requested by the courts when determining the split of financial assets. It also gives you clarity on how your mortgage borrowing will look post separation based on the different ways the court may suggest the assets are split.
Who carries out the assessment and writes the report?
The assessment and written report will be carried out by a fully qualified CAS mortgage adviser from Everystep Financial.
What to expect during the meeting?
The meeting can be over the phone, via Zoom/Teams or face to face (location dependent). The review will take approximately one hour whereby the adviser will take down all of your personal and financial information alongside gaining an understanding of the courts requirements in terms of the different ways the assets may be split alongside future incomes i.e. child maintenance being paid or received, childcare costs and adapted working situations.
