Suitable Mortgage and Lender
Our mortgage advisors will consider at least the following factors in helping to choose the most suitable mortgage for you:
- Mortgage Types: Explain the several types of mortgages available - fixed, tracker, discounted.
- Deposits – 5%, 10% or higher and the impact each will have on your monthly mortgage payments

- Bank or Building Society Incentives: Many offer incentives to First Time Buyers which could be special rates, free valuations low arrangement fees, cashback upon completion.
In addition to the mortgage there are other costs that need to be taken into consideration, such as solicitors, surveys, stamp duty which our mortgage advisors will be happy to explain.
Agreement In Principle
Lastly, when you are ready to start looking for your first home, our Mortgage advisors will arrange your Agreement in Principle (confirms your financial standing), which majority of estate agents will ask for when you are in position to offer on a property. So let's, put you one step ahead of other potential buyers.
We have access to a wide selection of lenders who we can recommend for your needs. We therefore pride ourselves on searching for the most suitable mortgage for your needs whilst keeping the experience as smooth as possible
