Mortgage services

We provide independent, whole-of-market advice on residential and commercial property purchases.

Our services range from researching the entire market for the best rate and clarifying associated costs, such as stamp duty, conveyancing fees and lender charges, to preparing applications and documents. We are happy to check mortgage offers and liaise with lenders, surveyors and conveyancing solicitors on your behalf.

First-time buyers

First-time buyers often seek our advice to guide them through their purchase and ensure they get the best mortgage. As well as the mortgage itself, we can help guide you through purchase schemes such as part ownership, shared ownership, shared equity and rent-to-buy.

Residential

Whether you are moving home or changing mortgage lender, we can review your existing mortgage arrangements in light of your personal and financial circumstances and identify the options available in the market.

Lifetime mortgages

Some people find themselves with insufficient funds in retirement but live in valuable properties with little or no mortgage. For many, there are now various ways of releasing some of this equity but the range of options can be confusing. We offer advice on which, if any, of these you might consider.

Investment property

If you invest or wish to invest in property, we can help to arrange buy-to-let or let-to-buy mortgages.

Commercial property

Commercial mortgages, by their nature, are generally more complicated to arrange than residential mortgages. We are experienced in preparing these facilities for clients.

Investing carries risk. Investment means that your capital is at risk and that there is no certainty that you will receive your capital back or that a positive return on your investment will be made. Past performance is no guide to future performance. There is no guarantee that the tax efficient nature of any investment will remain. Investment may not be suitable for everybody and potential investors should take their own independent advice.
