Mortgage advice

Full advice and recommendation service on a range of mortgages and re-mortgages.

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

Whether you are buying a property, looking for a better mortgage deal or investing in property, we will ensure you receive the personal service you deserve when discussing your mortgage and find the most suitable product that suits you.

The mortgage market is a complex world where good advice can save you both time and money. Our goal is to assist you in both these areas, enabling you to take the stress away and give you peace of mind!

Straight forward mortgage advice working with a professional adviser to secure the most appropriate deal has never been more important. There are not many different types of mortgage available and we can advise what is most appropriate having fully discussed your needs and circumstances. We deal with the following:

We’ll help you work out how much you can afford to borrow, taking into consideration what lenders will look for. This will avoid needlessly applying for a mortgage that might not be financially viable. We have access to a vast number of mortgages, some of which are only available to mortgage brokders like us. Therefore its worth checking with us before taking out a mortgage to make sure you are really get the suitable mortgage deal.

Have a look at the Money Advice Service guide to mortgages or contact us today to arrange a no obligation meeting to discuss your personal circumstances.

If you are looking to rent out a property you own, you’ll need a special mortgage called a buy-to-let mortgage. buy-to-let mortgages are the same as ordinary mortgages but have key differences:

  • Buy-to-let mortgages usually have higher interest rates.
  • Fee’s associated to Buy-to-let mortgages are also much higher.
  • You’ll need a minimum deposit of 20%, but the bigger your deposit the better.
  • The majority of Buy-to-let mortgages are interest only
  • The amount you can borrow is linked to what you expect to receive from your rental income. However, generally lenders want the rental income to be at least 25% higher then your mortgage payment.

Contact us today to discuss your Buy-to-let mortgage options.

We were all first time buyers at some point but making the right decision now could save you thousands in interest payments. We’ll take you through the home buying process step-by-step explaining everything along the way so you’ll have all the facts to make the right decision about what lender and mortgage type you choose.

Generally to get a mortgage you’ll need to have:

  • Savings of at least 5% of the cost of the home you would like to buy. For example if your home is £150,000 you’ll need at least £7,500 in savings. If you can save more than this will ultimately get you a better mortgage interest rate and a wider selection to choose from.
  • Money saved for Stamp duty, Solicitors fee’s, Survey and potentially removal costs.

There are a number of first time buyer schemes available to help you get on the housing ladder including the help to buy scheme offered by the goverment. Find out more about these schemes on the Money Advice Service website.

If you are lucky enough to have a good amount of savings in an account you can offest the interest on your mortgage with the amount you have in your savings account. For example if you had a mortgage of £100,000 and had savings of £20,000 you would only pay interest on £80,000 rather than £100,000. Because you’ll be paying less interest, you can pay off more of the amount you borrowed. This also means you could take years off your mortgage and therefore pay less interest in the long run. Contact us today to see if you could save money with an offset mortgage.

Please note:

  • Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
  • Buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the FCA
  • We charge a typical fee of £299.00 for mortgage arrangement.

Pension advice

FREE no obligation initial meeting with our team of pension experts.

The earlier you start making provisions for retirement, the more you will build up your pension fund.

To encourage people to provide for their own retirement the government has made personal pension plans tax efficient and a very effective way of saving for the future.

However changes in legislation mean this can be a very complex area of financial planning. We will explain the options to you simply and in plain English to enable you to make an informed decision as to your pension needs.

Our pension services include:

  • New or existing pension plan
  • Annuities, Drawdowns
  • Stakeholder pensions
  • Pension Transfers
  • Group Personal Pension
  • Final Salary Transfers

The value of pensions and the income they produce can fall as well as rise.

You may get back less than you invested.

Transferring out of a Final Salary scheme is unlikely to be in the best interests of most people.

Investment advice

Interest rates on your bank or building society savings are still very low, often below the rate of inflation. Over the years, then, the things you want to buy are getting more expensive but your savings may not be making enough to keep up with the cost of buying them.

So, to make real growth over the longer term, you need to invest some of your money into plans that have the ability to perform better than inflation. As well as the potential for stronger growth, you also need to ensure that you are taking advantage of the tax-free and tax-efficient allowances that are available to you. Proper investment planning really just means that your money can work harder, and last longer, for you.

Insurance & protection advice
