Can A Mortgage Broker Get You a Better Deal?

A mortgage broker can get potentially get you a better deal on your mortgage because we have access to more lenders than are available on the high-street.

We can trawl through literally hundreds of mortgages available to find you a great deal on your mortgage.

Another way a mortgage broker can potentially get you a better deal is because we have great relationships with lenders. You reap the rewards of that.

I am a whole market lender, which means I’m not tied to any particular lender. I can provide you with an objective range of suitable mortgages for you to choose from.

What Are the Benefits Of Using A Mortgage Broker?

There are a few real benefits of using a mortgage broker.

  • We can potentially save you time
  • We can potentially save you money
  • We are accountable
  • I can potentially reduce your stress

Let’s have a look at each one of those benefits in turn.

1) A Mortgage Broker Saves You Time  

If you have ever used a comparison tool to look for insurance you will know how time consuming it is. All those forms. All those questions.

Are you sure you are getting a good deal? Is the company reputable? Sometimes it feels like it isn’t worth the time spent on it. 

Now imagine doing that to borrow hundreds of thousands of pounds. All whilst trying to find a new house, pack up yours, deal with solicitors, and all your usual tasks.

Once you find one, you still have to do all the paperwork.

If nothing else, using a mortgage advisor will save you hours and hours of time. We do all that for you.

But there is more!

2) A Mortgage Broker Will Get You A Better Deal

We may be able to save people money on their mortgage.

Because we have access to a wider range of lenders, we can often find cheaper mortgages than are available from high street lenders.

Not only that, but we understand the market and keep an eye on trends. This means we know the best types of mortgage to get for your circumstances that will give you security and affordability.

Your stage in life, employment status, assets, ambitions, and credit scores combine to build a picture for us of what sort of mortgage products may be suitable for you.

Mortgage brokers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This means we have to perform within their guidelines and regulations.

Part of that is working with the lenders to make sure you can afford to repay your mortgage.

We also must make sure the mortgage product we sell you is suitable.

If something does go wrong, you can complain to the ombudsman. This gives you an extra layer of security and peace of mind.

4) I Reduce Your Stress

The reason I started this point with ‘I’ instead of ‘we’ is because this is part of what makes my services unique.

Buying a house is stressful. That’s not a secret.

Disputes with sellers, slow solicitors, deals falling through…there is a lot that can go wrong. Even buying a property to let and getting a buy to let mortgage can be stressful.

That is why I stick with my clients right through to exchange.

I am on hand to answer all your questions, introduce you to trusted professionals you might need, such as solicitors and estate agents, and deal with any red tape you might encounter.

I contact you when your term is coming to an end to see if I can get you a better deal, save you money, or reduce your overall mortgage length.

Can I Help?

Whether you are looking to move home, get a shared ownership mortgage through the Right To Buy scheme, remortgage or even just get some advice, I can help.

Hasn’t been a simple journey, with obstacles in our way (from seller and seller solicitors) but Simon was consistent throughout and was availiable at all times of day during the week to make things as easy as possible. Always worked around our awkward schedule including house visits on a Friday night. Can’t recommend him enough. Thank you so much Simon!”

    Jessica

  • “Simon is totally reliable, trustworthy and professional he went above and beyond to ensure that our mortgage was ported across to the new house we were buying in time for the completion date we had agreed.

    Also a thank you to Paulina, who has recently joined Simon’s team and kept in regular touch throughout as well as being very friendly and efficient.”

    Juliette Prosser- December 2020

  • “I cannot recommend Simon enough. He is professional, trustworthy, caring and knowledgable. Simon arranged both our mortgage and our protection. Unfortunately, we found ourselves in a position where we had to claim on the critical illness cover. Without his advice and cover we would have found ourselves in a sorry state. His attention to detail and no-nonsense approach to explaining each product ensured that we were covered. He has eleviated a huge financial burden at a very stressful time. I can’t recommend him enough. I will never use anyone else. This man really does go above and beyond.”

    Nicki – December 2018

  • “Best service we could have hoped for! Simon got us the right mortgage quickly, was professional, friendly, super responsive and delivered what we needed in a difficult Covid-19 time time, all whilst explaining everything through to us. Burnett Mortgages even went the extra mile sending us a thoughtful and lovely moving in gift, which just cemented that caring touch we experienced throughout. We couldn’t recommend Simon, Paulina and Burnett Mortgages highly enough! Will definitely use them again in the future.”

    Rebecca Hastings, July 2021

  • “Excellent service. Both Simon and Paulina were very helpful guiding us through the process and answering all of the questions we had. Communications level has been fantastic and the application had progressed very efficiently. Thank you :).”

    Paulina Lucewicz April 2021

  • “Me and my partner were 1st time buyers and had no idea what we was doing with any paperwork or what to apply for. Simon and Paulina calmed all nerves and helped us every step of the way. Nothing was any trouble for them and no question was too stupid (I asked some stupid ones).

    I would highly recommend Simon to anyone who’s looking for their 1st home or people remortgaging.”

    Will Gregorick – April 2021

  • Simon took on a challenge for my daughter – less than two months into a new job with time off on sick for Covid testing, turned down elsewhere, and not only found a mortgage that was 25% more affordable, but got it over the line within a week. Thank you – you’re a legend!

    Guy Nottingham – January 2021

  • “We came across Simons website when we were searching for a local mortgage broker. We had just had our mortgage declined from a bank because I only had one years accounts. I emailed Simon and had a response from him within the hour, he said he’d try his best to help us out. He phoned us a few days later to talk about our situation and why we had our previous mortgage declined. With us being first time buyers we were stressed out and we didn’t want to loose a house that we had fallen in love with. Simon made sure that he gathered as much information as possible from me and my boyfriend and found a mortgage and had it accepted within a week or so. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling to get a mortgage, he’s very down to earth, friendly and professional and we will continue to use him if we ever buy another house in the future!!.”

    Megan – February 2021

  • Simon was excellent from start to finish and in very unusual circumstances. He dealt with our mortgage managing to get us the best deal possible in a time of economic uncertainty and made sure our life insurance was up to scratch too. Despite not being able to be in face to face contact due to restrictions imposed at the time communicating was simple, regular, supportive and effective. He was easy to talk to and happy to deal with questions. He certainly went above and beyond to get us relocated and was excited for us even sending us a congratulatory gift. We will most certainly be returning when it is time to remortgage.

    Alexis – October 2020

  • “My girlfriend & I were left in a tricky spot after our mortgage application was declined having already had an offer accepted. As a first time buyer this was very stressful but Simon consistently reassured us throughout the process. He was extremely responsive to all questions and sorted us a mortgage with a better rate than any other we could find online in less than two weeks. We will definitely be using his services & we can’t recommend him enough!.”

    Nathan – February 2021

  • “We have found Simon to be a most helpful mortgage adviser. He is knowledgable and listens to clients’ requests and needs. He is very prompt in communication and always goes that extra mile to help. I would have no hestitation in recommending him for mortgaging advice.”

    Suzanne

  • “I couldn’t thank Simon and his team enough for helping me get on the property ladder. He could never do enough to help through the process. As a first time buyer I didn’t have a clue and any question I asked he answered with my best interests at heart. I would advise anyone who is thinking of using a mortgage advisor to use Simon and his team. I will be definitely using him in the future when it comes to remortgage time and thanks to Paulina who chased the solicitors making them pull there finger out. Thank you once again.”

    Matthew Lindley – May 2021

  • “Me and my partner had Simon help us when we first decided to buy a property together neither of us had any experience and at the time we had an average if not low credit score Simon was able to talk us through the process and what we could do to raise that score and look at options available to us. Simon has helped us through every stage and has been an absolute diamond answering questions that we had no clue about. It is always a pleasure talking to Simon he works his best and looks at all options, he is very efficient and is true to his word. He has now helped us not only initially get onto the property ladder but with a variety of other questions in relation to our mortgage and we recommend him highly to anyone who needs help”

    SarahJane Ward April 2021

  • “Where do we start with Simon, we can’t recommend him enough. This time we re-mortgaged after he found our first mortgage on our first home. Simon is so easy to talk to, and he always goes the extra mile to help his customers. Any stress you have you have about your mortgage dwindles away as soon as you speak to Simon. Every little detail he explains to you in a way that it is easy for anyone to understand, so you will never sign anything you are unsure about. We can’t thank Simon enough and we will sure be in touch when its time to re-mortgage again.”

    Colette Hunt – May 2021

  • “We came across Simons website when we were searching for a local mortgage broker. We had just had our mortgage declined from a bank because I only had one years accounts.
