Mortgage Broker Mildenhall
Get in touch today to discuss the most suitable mortgage option for you.
What does a Mortgage Broker do?
A Mortgage Broker (or Mortgage Adviser) provides advice and support to potential mortgage applicants. Even experienced homeowners looking to buy their second or third property can benefit from speaking to a Mortgage Broker, given their comprehensive overview and up to date knowledge of the many different types of mortgage products and Mortgage Lenders available.
Rather than you personally searching through the terms and conditions of hundreds of different mortgages, brokers will tailor their lender search to find those products that most closely match your personal circumstances. This not only saves you time, it can reduce the stress, financial loss and upset of rejected applications.
What information will a Mortgage Broker ask for?
In order to gauge the type of mortgage products that will suit you, your Mortgage Broker will need to establish your home ownership goals, as well as a clear idea of your financial situation. Here are some of the documents you are likely to need for our initial meeting, if you’re applying jointly, both applicants will need to provide these:
- Proof of Identity (Passport)
- Proof of your current address (usually a utility bill etc)
- Details of your income – Employer details and payslips or Self-Employed equivalent
- Three months worth of bank statements as a minimum
- A comprehensive list of outgoings (loans, utility bills, family and travel costs)
- Your credit score details if possible – they may also carry out an additional check, but never without your permission
What are the benefits of using a Mortgage Broker?
The main benefit is access to a wider variety of mortgage deals, it’s unlikely that you will be able to find the best mortgage option available to you by yourself, particularly if you stick to high street lenders. There are certain specialist independent Mortgage Lenders who predominantly or only work through Mortgage Brokers and offer deals that won’t be available elsewhere.
Mortgage applications can be complex and time consuming. The availability of someone who’s intimately acquainted with the administrative aspects of your application, to share the burden with, can save you a huge amount of time and stress.
Mortgage Brokers vs. your bank
For many people, it seems like a logical step to approach their long trusted bank to borrow money to purchase their first home. An important thing to bear in mind, however, is that banks are acting as the lender in this situation and therefore, their advisers are not able to provide unbiased advice. Whilst they may offer you the most suited of their own mortgage products, what they certainly won’t do, is consider whether you might find better interest rates or terms and conditions elsewhere.
Another very important benefit of using Mortgage Brokers is their ability to offer impartial advice. They have access to both high street and independent market mortgages, neither of which are they affiliated with. You can therefore feel confident that if you use a Mortgage Broker to find a mortgage, they will be looking after your best interests.
