Knowing which mortgage type is best and which mortgage rates are available to you can be confusing at the best of times. Having a mortgage broker on hand to help you understand the difference between certain deals, interest rates and the consequences of opting for one mortgage over another can be very useful. We fully explain all the options and why we make the choices we do.

What will a mortgage advisor want to know?

Be prepared to explain your situation and where you are in the house buying process when you first speak with a mortgage advisor. If you are just getting started, you may only want to determine how much money you might be able to borrow. Perhaps the offer on a house you want to buy has been accepted, and you would like to have the mortgage arranged as soon as possible. They will want to know the value of the property your buying, any debts, your income, employment details and deposit amount.

In the later stages we will ask for proof of income, 3 months of bank statements, 3 months of payslips, your ID & a proof of address.

This can save you hours, imagine searching for days looking for the best mortgage, only to find out you may not meet the lenders criteria. Using an advisor can make the mortgage application process a lot quicker and a lot less frustrating.

When you submit a mortgage application you are never 100% sure it will be accepted and offered on. Our mortgage advisors know the lenders criteria, we know what they want and the likelihood of you getting your mortgage offer. Rejected mortgage applications can prove costly both in terms of money and time, particularly if you have paid a some legal and valuation fees beforehand. More importantly they can mean you use up valuable time missing out on the property you really want.

Your initial meeting with a GHL Direct adviser to discuss your requirements costs you nothing and is without obligation. If you like our advice and would like us to arrange your mortgage then broker fees may be charged. Some brokers charge you nothing but will earn commission paid by the mortgage lenders. Others earn commission from lenders and will charge you a flat fee called a broker fee. Whether an adviser is really worth it will ultimately depend on the cost and what service they are providing. Your mortgage advisor will outline all this to you at the start of the meeting.
