The Fee-Free mortgage
From time to time, many mortgage lenders advertise fee-free mortgage deals.
And very attractive they can sound too.
Now that many deals come with a set-up fee (also called an arrangement or reservation fee) of anything from £400 to £4,000, what borrower wouldn’t like to be offered one that doesn’t charge a penny for this?
that’s not all. In many cases, the lender will also cover your property valuation and basic legal fees.
It seems like a win-win situation
The lender pulls in heaps of new business from hard-pressed borrowers keen to avoid being ripped off with a traditional high-fees deal.
And, when you add in those valuation and legal fees, you stand to save anything upwards of £1,000.
But (surprise, surprise) it isn’t that simple
Mortgage lenders aren’t charities, which means they’re not in the business of handing out something for nothing.
So what’s the catch?
