Coronavirus Update

We understand that some customers may be worried about the effect that contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) could have on their finances, for example due to a drop in income as a result of contracting the virus or because of the measures imposed to stop it spreading. If you have any concerns about how this could affect you and your mortgage, please click here to read the leaflet produced by the Building Societies Association and National Debtline or please get in touch on 01664 414141.

Coronavirus Scams

The Society is aware of fraudsters using the Coronavirus outbreak to try and trick people into parting with their money. Here are four types of fraudulent activity that we are aware of:

  • Sales of ineffective protective face masks
  • Coronavirus-themed phishing emails with malicious links and attachments
  • Fraudsters sending texts and emails pretending to be from the World Health Organisation (WHO) claiming to be able to provide a list of infected people in their area. Please remember to be wary of links and attachments from unsolicited emails and texts and take care not to provide your personal or financial details
  • Posing as employees of a bank or building society. Please click here to read further guidance on how to protect yourself

Thank you for your patience.

Working out your mortgage budget

It’s a good idea to know approximately how much you’ll have to spend before you start house hunting. The Melton’s mortgage advisors will help work out an affordability budget with you to give you an indication of how much you may be able to borrow.

Saving for your deposit

Opening a savings account can be a good way to save up for your deposit. Take a look at our range of savings accounts.

Finding your first home

Make friends with the agents. Calling and visiting your estate agents regularly will help ensure you’re the first to know when a hot new property hits the market.
Put aside a whole day, and do a number of viewings (six is the suggested maximum). Go on a weekday if you can – estate agents will give you more time than at the weekend.
Take your own pictures. These are much more useful than glossy agents’ shots. Film your visits on your phone, too. That way, you have something to refer back to.
