Mortgages are one of the largest single transactions in most people’s lives. Buying a property can be a stressful and a time-consuming experience. We're here to offer our customers the very best mortgage advice.
Let us help you choose the right product for your circumstances.
There have been many significant changes in the regulation and provision of mortgages over the last decade, meaning that gathering the borrowing that you need can be more difficult than in years gone by and can leave you unsure as to the best way forward. The good news is that now all Financial Advisers and Mortgage Brokers need to be fully qualified and regulated, and they need to provide you with advice as to the mortgage that is the most suitable for your needs, to do this and provide a client with ‘best advice’ there is a need to gather various information from you about your current situation and future goals.
With the rise of information available online, it can be tempting for you to cut out the middleman when searching for a new mortgage and some people may even think they can save money doing so, but there are other considerations that need to be taken into account such as your current circumstances, are you self – employed, have you had any credit issues in the past 6 years, do you have unsecured debt are just a few of the things that can affect the choice of lender that is recommended, so an understanding of the difference between different lenders criteria is vital in selecting the most appropriate deal from across the whole of the marketplace for a client.
Potential borrowers could decide to go straight to their bank or building society and choose the cheapest fixed or tracker rate, that THEY offer. Firstly, you will need to book an appointment at the bank or building society which will take place during working hours meaning time may need to be taken off work, secondly once you have managed to obtain an appointment you will then need to hope that they will lend you the required amount, then hope that you will be accepted.
In our experience this is often not the case and then you have to start the whole time-consuming process again, with another bank and wait to see their adviser, who will redo everything from scratch and you will have an un-necessary search on your credit file, which can be seen by a subsequent lender, and may damage your chances of being accepted. don’t forget that banks or Building Society only offer advice on the products from its own range, so it is unlikely that you would be gaining access to a product that is most attractive to meet your needs.
This is where the advice of a fully qualified and experienced Mortgage Adviser comes into play, using extensive knowledge of the marketplace to find you the correct product at the first time with no further duplication of paperwork.
Whole of market mortgage advice is just that, enabling me to select for you from all the available products on the market, giving you the best possible chance of being accepted, not affecting your credit file and stopping you from wasting time and money with a lender who looks good on the surface, but ultimately you may not be able to access.
It also differs from the advice of a multi-tied adviser, like those found in Estate Agents who will only offer mortgages from a limited range of providers. Whole of Market Mortgage Advisers offer impartial advice, with the aim of helping you choose the right product for your circumstances.
We will also ensure you are provided with a suitable and economic life assurance quote in order to mitigate a debt, that a mortgage will create, thus protecting your family in the future
