Leicester Tigers club partner Beehive Money is the place for supporters to find information on savings, mortgages and buying a home.
The Beehive Money Marketplace brings together a range of carefully selected tools and expert partners to help you manage your money better and get closer to buying the home you’ve always dreamed of. From first-time buyers to seasoned home-movers there’s a partner and a tool for almost everyone.
As well as Mortgage Advice Bureau, there are two more partners to shout about that have just landed on the Beehive app in the past few months. CreditLadder, the partner that could be helpful for first-time buyers who are considering ways to improve their credit position. Plus, Optimus which could be great for any home buyers, first-time or not as it’s all about home surveys and conveyancing – two important bits of the house buying process.
CreditLadder is the UK’s first rent reporting platform and allows tenants to have their rent payments reported to the four main Credit Reference Agencies in the UK (the people that set your credit score and track your history) - Experian, Equifax, TransUnion and Crediva.
As a first-time buyer if you’ve ever wished that your regular rent payment counted towards your credit position, you wouldn’t be alone. Rent isn’t routinely recognised in credit reports, so this can potentially make it harder for renters to secure a mortgage. CreditLadder offers a service that will support your house-buying goal journey by making your rent visible on your credit report which could, in time, improve your credit position! Plus, it’ll help to build your actual credit score with Equifax and TransUnion!
By working with CreditLadder, Beehive believe it's another step they’re taking to making home buying more accessible to more people. Find out much more about CreditLadder on the Beehive website or app.
The third partner that Beehive currently have in their Marketplace is Optimus. These guys look after digitally based conveyancing and home surveys and are award-winning in what they do.
They won best legal services provider at the Your Mortgage awards in 2020-21 so Beehive are confident that they’ll help their members in the best way they can. Optimus are aiming to make property services fairer and easier to navigate using tech, fixed-pricing and high-performing solicitors. Optimus makes it easy for you to manage your conveyancing journey with online tracking and your pick of recommended solicitors. Plus, they have a panel of over 200 nationwide Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) regulated surveyors for their home surveying offering.
Optimus is a secure digital service which aims to connect you with the right conveyancer or home surveyor for a fixed price. You can check out more about Optimus on the Beehive website.
