  • Check how much you can afford to borrow
  • Help you to gather the information and documents you need for your application
  • Help you prepare your application for submission
  • Submit your application to the lender
  • Liaise with the lender, solicitors and estate agents.

Once your mortgage has been offered, we'll support you all the way through to completion.

We'll work hard to build a lasting relationship with you so you'll always have someone you trust to help with any queries or requirements in the future.


First time buyers dreaming off their first home

Start looking for your dream home

Before you even start looking for your new home it's a good idea to talk to us so you can understand exactly how much you can borrow.


Everyone has different circumstances, you may be employed or self-employed, recently started a new job or have bonuses and commission that form part of your income. 


This is where our expertise comes in and once you've had your initial consultation you will have a clear idea of how much you can borrow.

Depending on your timescales we can do a formal Agreement in Principle with a lender so that you can take this to Estate Agents when viewing properties.


Then the fun starts and you can start looking, we love seeing the properties you are interested in and enjoy being part of your journey to home ownership.

How does the mortgage process work?

Helping you get the keys to your new home

Getting a mortgage is important, but it doesn't have to be complicated. We'll handle every step for you, deal with all the paperwork and take away all the hassle. Here's a quick overview of how the process works and how we will help you:

  • We'll talk to you in detail about your situation and budget to work out the maximum you can borrow. This will help make sure you're looking for properties in the right price bracket.
  • We'll explain all the documentation we'll need to put together to support your application.
  • Once you've found a property, we'll find your ideal mortgage and manage the application process for you. We'll make it as simple as possible.
  • The lender then carries out a survey to assess the property, and their underwriter will review it all to confirm it's affordable for you. This might include asking for a reference from your employer or accountant
  • Once the lender's happy with all the checks, they'll make a formal mortgage offer. Then we'll help you complete the legal details and exchange contracts with the seller. We'll be there to talk you through every single piece of paper so you don't need to worry about a thing.
