How much can I borrow?

There are a number of factors that determine the amount you can borrow. It will depend on your income, whether its a joint application, overtime and bonuses amongst other things. You also have to consider that different lenders use different methods of calculating affordability.

How do we charge?

We may provide free advice as we often receive payment from the provider for introducing the business to them. If for any reason there are complex cases, any fees will be discussed prior to your any work carried out.

How long is the mortgage process?

This will differ from person to person. However, we will generally be able to assess all aspects of your situation and give a rough estimate of how long the process will take. A general rule of thumb is 6-8 weeks.

What deposit should I have?

This will differ from person to person, but a general rule is the larger your deposit, the better. The amount you can put down in the form of a deposit will make a significant difference when it comes to finding the best deal.
