The Three Most Important Things When Seeking a UK Mortgage

1) Research ! Research ! Research !

Choosing the right mortgage for your personal needs can make a huge difference to what you pay. So it’s good that you’re here ! It can all look very complex to non-mortgage professionals – and the “industry” makes extra money from this confusion. (Funny that !) But we’ll quickly help you simplify things.

2) Shop Around

Under no circumstances should you just take the first deal you are offered. Regardless of what you may think –- or be told –- if one mortgage lender has made you an offer this means others will. And their rate may be better. So keep shopping.

3) Get Three Quotes

You should aim to get at least three quotes or you could be overpaying by thousands of pounds.

Don’’t let your “trusted” bank fool you into taking their mortgage. (The days of loyalty to long-standing customers are long gone). Even if you are offered a “special loyalty rate” always get a comparison with other products.

The easiest way to get several quotes is by asking an independent mortgage adviser to help you. But make sure they truly are independent (See the Different Types of UK Mortgage Advisers).
