Faqs

Get answers to your most common questions below...
How many years accounts do I need?

You'll usually need a minimum of one year's accounts for a lender to agree an application.

Contractors can sometimes get a mortgage approved with less than a year's books, but the lender will look at each case on it's merits.

Once an advisor has viewed your credit file (don't worry, our digital mortgage appliation process makes this very straightforward), a decision in principle can normally be made within 24 hours. Sometimes the same day.

Get started in 90 seconds

How much deposit will I need?

There are many affordable mortgage deals available with just a 5% deposit.

However, the best rates and deals are reserved for borrowers with larger deposits (25%+), as a lower loan-to-value (LTV) represents less risk for the lender.

Get started in 90 seconds

Do you run a credit search?

Not initially. We will need to see your credit report before we can provide a decision in principle. If and when you decide to proceed to an application, your lender will carry out a further credit search as part of their underwriting process.

Get started in 90 seconds

Are there any upfront fees?

Unlike some competitors, we don't charge any upfront fees. No mortgage, no fee.

A broker fee is only payable after you've received a formal mortgage offer from a lender. The fee will depend on the complexity of your case and the amount of work required to source your mortgage deal.

Your advisor will inform you of the fee in advance, once he's checked your credit file, gathered all relevant info and provided you with a decision in principle. There's no obligation at this point, and you can walk away without paying a penny if you wish.

Get started in 90 seconds

How quickly can you arrange my mortgage?

Unlike traditional brokers, our digital application process makes it quick and simple to get a self employed mortgage.

Expect a decision in principle within 24 hours of us receiving your credit report.

Each lender will have different volumes of applications to process, and therefore timeframes to turn around cases. But 4-6 weeks is common.

Get started in 90 seconds

Will my mortgage cost more?

It largely depends on your credit history. But assuming a clean bill of health, many lenders offer highly competitive rates similar to those available to mainstream borrowers.

Get started in 90 seconds

Can I borrow extra on top of what I already owe?

Yes, either by remortgaging with a new lender, taking out a further advance with your current lender, or via a secured loan (a.k.a second charge mortgage).

Just tell us your requirements and we'll let you know your options in plain english.

Get started in 90 seconds

I've got a bad credit history, can you help?

Yes. Much will depend on the severity of your adverse credit, and how large a deposit you have.

For obvious reasons, bankruptcy is the most difficult form of bad credit to source a mortgage for. But we work with lenders willing to lend within 3 - 4 years of discharge.
