Thank you for your query. Where it is right time to staircase up to 100% would depend on your financial circumstances. At present, property prices have dropped and it may be beneficial to do so now as the market value would be lower, this costing you less.

However, you should take independent financial advice and make your own calculations.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
