Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage

The mortgage market is forever changing, both in terms of the offers available, regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority, and how lenders assess loan applications. As experienced and knowledgeable Mortgage Advisers, we aim to remove the stress from the mortgage process. We have access to thousands of mortgage products, including exclusive products which are not commonly available on the High street.


As part of our service, we search the market to find the product that is most suitable for your needs.

We can help:

  • First time buyers

  • Home movers

  • Home owners wishing to re-mortgage

  • Buy-to-let investors

  • Commercial mortgages

By keeping in close contact with our clients throughout what can be a very involved and stressful time of their lives, we are able to help project manage the otherwise demanding house buying process.

From early advice on what sort of property to purchase, to helping find a good solicitor, through to advice on which survey to instruct and ensuring all documents and paperwork are forwarded and submitted at the right times, we are on hand to help and advise wherever we can.


It is not as simple as looking for the lender with the cheapest rate, or insurer with the cheapest premium.

Yes, the interest rate or premium is key as a starting point. However, how might that change in the short, medium or long term?

We undertake a comprehensive review of other key factors that affect the real cost to you. For example, some lenders charge arrangement fees that can be large enough to make the overall cost of lending unattractive, when compared to others.

Other key features of mortgages that you need to consider are:

  • Early repayment charges – if you wish to partially or fully repay your mortgage during its term:

  • Portability of the loan – if you move, you may wish to keep your current mortgage

  • Fixed rate – would you benefit by fixing the interest rate with the lender for a set period?

  • Annual percentage rate (APR) – what is the real cost of borrowing, not just the interest rate charged?

  • Flexibility – the ability to overpay, take payment holidays, or switch repayment types

  • Frequency of interest additions – how often the lender calculates and adds interest to your loan, for example daily, monthly, or annually, can affect the cost of your borrowing.

Insurance is very similar – we will advise you so that if you ever need to make a claim, you or your dependants, will receive what you were expecting.

This is why analysing and monitoring the enormous range of products is important. This ensures you get the best solution.
