We have a duty of care to you as a qualified mortgage broker. We will recommend a first time buyer mortgage that best suits your circumstances and we will explain to you why the recommended mortgage is the best route for you. We are qualified to approach a comprehensive panel of Lenders in N.Ireland and the UK and we are experts in each Lender’s specific criteria which means we will be able to match you with the Lender that makes most sense.

There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances but we estimate that it will be £195 but may range from £0 to £495.
