I specialise in bad credit mortgages because very few brokers are interested in offering this specialist advice as the process is very time consuming. Understanding adverse credit lenders criteria is far more complex, time consuming and trickier than dealing with a mortgage from a High Street lender. With only a handful of subprime lenders to choose from, getting it right first time is very important.
The value of advice
Mortgages are a lot more difficult than they first appear. Knowing what rate, what term, what lender, what features, what insurance are all time-consuming and complex matters. Choosing a mortgage is a process far more complicated than simply the lowest rate or the best incentives. I take your whole circumstances into account to recommend a suitable product. And it’s that thorough, professional look at your finances that makes advice well worth paying for.
Why use me to arrange your mortgage?
What do I do that you can’t? And why should you pay me for my services when there are loads of other costs when you move home or remortgage? However tempting it is to arrange your own mortgage let me convince you to use me as my advice could be an invaluable service and here’s why…
An important thing to understand is that when you receive mortgage advice, I have a duty of care to recommend the most suitable mortgage for you and be able to justify why the particular mortgage I recommended is right for you. If my advice is not up to scratch you can complain and be compensated.
I am qualified
There’s an awful lot to choosing the right mortgage as it is not as simple as just the cheapest fixed or tracker rate mortgage you can find. I have to be qualified to give you mortgage advice. I have the Financial Planning Certificate (FPC) Levels 1, 2 & 3 and Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice CeMAP
I am on your side
As an whole of market mortgage broker, I will look for the best mortgage for you. I am on your side not the lenders.
I know my industry
Mortgage criteria has tightened considerably over the past few years but I deal with lenders on a day-to-day basis. I know which lenders can process your application without unnecessary delays. I also know the background criteria that a lender has and can bring this experience to bear when advising you and processing your application. Because I might put a lot of business to a particular lender in a year, I can exert influence and chase things in a way you just can’t do by yourself.
It’s not just about the mortgage
I won’t just advise you about your mortgage. I will also look at any related life insurance, payment protection and even buildings and contents insurance you have. I will recommend insurance based on your new mortgage arrangements to make sure you are fully protected in the event of:
- Critical illness (such as cancer, heart attack or stroke)
- Income replacement
I have a choice of five insurances I can recommend for these products saving you the time and effort of having to shop around.
As with all insurance policies, conditions and exclusions will apply
