The best thing about our job as a Mortgage Broker in Birmingham is helping our clients navigate through the often stressful experience of buying a home or remortgaging. It can be a complicated process and our clients love having someone on their side from start to finish to ensure they get the right advice.
We do pride ourselves on providing a highly responsive service, communication is everything in this job. We work from a large panel of well-known high street banks and building Societies to ensure our clients get the best deal available to them but we also work with smaller, more specialist Lenders too for when we come across clients who don’t “tick all the boxes”.
Your free mortgage consultation in Birmingham will last approximately one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether or not you wish to go ahead.
As your Mortgage Broker in Birmingham, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your needs prior to recommending the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check is then required for an Agreement in Principle and then once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been carried out a formal mortgage offer can be issued
Our Mortgage Advisors in Birmingham recommend that you try and get your Agreement in Principle before you take up the decision of starting to view properties in Birmingham, to avoid disappointment. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making an offer to assist your bargaining position with the seller.
An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days depending on the lender. If your Agreement in Principle expires it can always be refreshed. If you need help obtaining one, our Mortgage Advisors in Birmingham can usually get one sorted for you within 24 hours of your application.
