What our customers say

Common mortgage

Your free initial mortgage consultation in London will last roughly one hour. Your dedicated mortgage advisor in London will then recommend a mortgage for you, with no obligation for you to proceed. At this point, it is up to you to decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the recommended mortgage.

If you choose us as your Mortgage Broker in London, then our process will work as the following; One of our Mortgage Advisors in London will carry out a Fact Find to determine your, needs before recommending the most suitable mortgage available for you. A credit check will then be required for an Agreement In Principle.  Once all the relevant documentation has been gathered and the valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

In order for you to ensure you are prepared as early as possible, our Mortgage Advisors in London recommend that you obtain an Agreement in Principle prior to viewing properties in London. At the very latest you should obtain a Mortgage Agreement in Principle before you make any offers, in order to help with your bargaining position.

An Agreement in Principle will normally last somewhere in the range of 30 and 90 days. This depends on the Lender that is being used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, your advisor can always refresh this for you.

If you are looking to achieve something like debt consolidation or home improvements, you may be able to get a second mortgage. The option for a second mortgage can also be used on a second property if you are looking at using it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.

The minimum deposit necessary for purchasing a house in London with High Street Lenders is usually at 5%. If you have had previous credit problems, this could be higher.

Obtaining a mortgage if you have had previous credit problems isn’t completely impossible, but you may face certain hurdles, such as some lenders requiring that you put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 15% of the property purchase price.

You are able to get a mortgage once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts. The majority of Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum amount you can borrow, whereas others may use your net profit.

Three payslips are generally what is required for an employee to prove their income and if you are Self-Employed, it’s usually the latest 2 years’ accounts. You will also need to produce some proof of ID, your address and the latest 3 months’ bank statements.

If you take up a free initial mortgage consultation with one of our trusted Mortgage Advisors in London, your appointment will last around an hour. Your advisor will be able to turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours, with a formal mortgage offer taking roughly about three weeks on average.
