Finding the right mortgage advisor for you
Financial advisors aren’t always called ‘financial advisors’. Instead, they’re sometimes named by their specialism, like ‘mortgage advisor’ or ‘mortgage broker’,
Sometimes, they are known as ‘brokers’ – often when dealing with single products such as:
* Mortgages advice
* Insurance & protection
* Equity Release
Whatever they could be called, what all financial advisors within the UK do have in common is that they’re regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This means there are rules they must follow when dealing with you.
This includes the following areas of advice:
* First time buyers
* Moving home
Why it’s usually a requirement that you get mortgage advice independent mortgage advisers have a wide knowledge of the mortgages available from a wide number of lenders. They can search the market on your behalf and recommend the best deal.
To find these deals on your own involves a lot of research and talking through your circumstances many times with different lenders. They can also improve your chances of being accepted for a mortgage as they’ll know which lenders are best suited to your particular circumstances.
It’s important to see a mortgage advisor at the start of your mortgage journey whether it’s your first mortgage or you're looking to re-mortgage. It will save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. It’s good idea to speak to a few different firms to see what’s on currently offer and to compare fees. It makes sense to choose a broker or advisor providing a ‘whole of market’ service.
This means they can choose from the biggest number of lenders and mortgages available. Some lenders will have exclusive deals only available if you go to them directly which can help you avoid paying any up front broker fees.
They often help you complete the paperwork, and forms, so your application should be dealt with faster. They’ll help you take all the costs and features of the mortgage into account, beyond the interest rate.
