Benefits Of Using A Specialist Mortgage Broker
If you’re unsure whether to hire a difficult mortgage specialist or go solo, it’s worth considering the benefits that come with hiring a specialist. These include:
Access to Exclusive Deals
Because they have links with FCA-approved lenders, our specialist mortgage brokers can secure deals that aren’t available to the general public. Using their special access, our mortgage specialists can help to craft a mortgage deal that best suits your needs.
Similarly, a specialist mortgage broker can use their leverage to arrange fee reductions, as well as help you manage your existing fees and other costs.
Above all, hiring a specialist mortgage advisor will save you a massive amount of time and effort. A broker takes on the heavy admin and legal work for you, meaning that you have one point of contact for any financial queries – allowing you to focus on the bigger picture and not get lost in the minutiae of endless paperwork.
What Is A Specialist Mortgage?
A specialist or unique mortgage is a home loan that doesn’t fit under the typical layout of a mortgage. Let’s look at some of the most popular specialist mortgages in closer detail.
Do My Circumstances Fit?
Situations where you might need to employ the services of specialist mortgage brokers in the UK include:
- You are self-employed and your income is irregular
- You have bad credit
- You have a low credit score
- Your credit history is poor
- You have CCJs
- You have been declared bankrupt
- You’re a first-time buyer trying to get on the property ladder
- You want to take out a buy-to-let mortgage
- You’ve missed payments on financial commitments in the past
- Your mortgage is being managed by a debt management plan
- You want to release some or all of the equity in your property
- Securing a mortgage against a property that already has an outstanding mortgage on it
- You want a bridging loan
- You are an ex-pat
- You are only eligible for an interest-only mortgage
Bad Credit Mortgages
If you have a poor credit history then it can be very difficult to get on the property ladder. Most mortgage brokers will focus on your current credit score, and if you haven’t got the best history, then this will be flagged and potentially prevent you from getting a mortgage.
Thankfully, we have specialist mortgage brokers for bad credit to help you get back on track with your credit score. If you are struggling to purchase your first property, then a bad credit mortgage may give you that step-up you need. We provide the specialist mortgage advice you need in order to find a mortgage deal.
Typically, when applying for a mortgage, your chosen financial lender will check your employment status. When applying for a self-employed mortgage, your specialist lender will typically ask for up to two years of your company’s financial accounts. If you have only been self-employed for a couple of months, then it can be hard to successfully apply for a self-employed mortgage.
Thankfully, there are mortgage options out there suited for anyone self-employed. We will use our knowledge of the mortgage market to find you a lender that will take your self-employed status into consideration.
Large or Complex Mortgages
If the property you are considering purchasing is worth over £1 million, then you may have to consider taking out a large or complex mortgage.
Many mortgage loans won’t cover extremely pricey properties, which is why large mortgage options are available. The judgement process can be fairly difficult if applying for a complex mortgage, but our mortgage specialists can put you in touch with specialist mortgage lenders who can provide you with the financing you need.
