"Taking out a mortgage is set to be more difficult this year as a wave of changes take effect, experts have warned. A shake-up in the rules around affordability, the withdrawal of cheap funding for banks and building societies, plus fears of a new housing bubble could all lead to lenders toughening their criteria and saving home loans for low-risk borrowers.
These new rules, created by the Financial Conduct Authority, have been designed to protect consumers and prevent excessive or risky lending by mortgage providers. However, lenders and brokers say the change will extend the process of taking out a mortgage and reduce the amount borrowers can raise."
