Spoke to several Mortgage Brokers about my situation and having talked to Malcolm, he fully understood my views and gave me his honest opinion. A very professional, friendly, and efficient service that enabled us to the best mortgage on the market.
Helen was lovely to chat with, she booked me in for an appointment with a broker within minutes of me sending an email enquiry on a Sunday and explained everything about the process really well.
Very responsive even in late evenings! Answered all of the questions that I had, explained the whole process through out and made the house buying process so much easier!

A remortgage occurs when you are nearing the end of your introductory mortgage period. The process involves moving across onto another mortgage product, as a means of preventing you from falling onto your lender’s standard variable rate of interest. We are able to help our customers to search the market for competitive rates and mortgage products.
As well as finding a better mortgage deal, many people will remortgage for different reasons such as to release equity, for any much needed home improvements or to consolidate debt into their mortgage, making their finances more manageable.

The banks’ mortgage advisors are only able to offer products from one lender – Themselves. Their mortgage advisors can also be rather hard to get an appointment with, so if you’re actively looking at properties or are ready to offer this can be very frustrating. Seeking advice from a professional mortgage broker can also work in your favour, as we can compare deals. We have a large number of mortgage lenders on panel, some with very specialist mortgage products available. Worry not, we have a lot of experience and knowledge in providing mortgage advice to customers with a variety of situations.
Quite often, customers that contact us for mortgage advice in Cheltenham have been turned away by their bank for reasons such as income types, credit score, property type and the bank won’t lend enough. More often than not, we have the ability to help with this.
Typically, our free consultation will last up to an hour or so. Our team can turn around an agreement in principle within 24 hours of speaking to an advisor. A formal mortgage offer can take around three weeks on average.
It’s typically three payslips for an employee to prove their income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for a Self Employed applicant. You will also need to provide the lender with proof of ID, address, and 3 months’ bank statements.
Once you have submitted a minimum one year’s accounts, you can get a mortgage. Most Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas some other lenders are known to go off your net profit.
Even if you have had credit problems, you may still be able to get a mortgage, though you may be required to put down a higher deposit than you otherwise would’ve, often 15% of the property purchase price.
The minimum deposit for buying a house in Bristol with High Street Lenders is around 5%. This can be higher if you have had previous credit problems.
You may find that it is possible to get a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or Home Improvements. If you are looking to take out a mortgage on a second property, either to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home, or a Buy to Let, this may also be possible.
An Agreement in Principle will usually last between 30 and 90 days, depending on the lender you go with. If your Agreement in Principle expires, you can always have it refreshed.
To avoid being disappointed if an offer falls through, we recommend that home buyers obtain an Agreement in Principle before you begin viewing properties in Bristol. At the very latest you should obtain an AIP prior to making an offer to assist your bargaining position with a seller.
As a trusted and hard-working mortgage broker in Bristol, we will carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for your situation. A credit check will be required for an Agreement in Principle. Once you have given the lender all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been completed, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.
Your free mortgage consultation with a trusted member of our mortgage advice team in Bristol will last around one hour. From there, your advisor will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether you wish to take it or step back.
