Mortgages! Where to start? How much can I borrow? How much should I expect to pay in advice fees?
Updated: Jan 21
Whether you are buying for the first time or moving to your ‘forever home’ the home buying process can be a stressful time for everyone. Getting the right mortgage advice from the outset can help take the stress away leaving you to sort out the more important things like, picking out the sofa or choosing between a games room or a dressing room.
How much can I borrow?
The rule of thumb is that most Lenders will lend between four and four
and half times your annual income. However, a Specialist Mortgage Adviser may be able to achieve more than this as they have access to contacts and Lenders that the public do not. They may also be able to leverage their relationships with certain Banks and Building Societies to help achieve a mortgage that at first didn’t seem within reach.
How much should I expect to pay in mortgage advice fees?
This is the good part. Typically, mortgage advisers will charge upwards of £500 in ‘advice fees’ or ‘broker fees’ on what would be deemed ‘straight-forward cases. However, at My Mortgage Finder, we will provide you access to our bespoke, Specialist Mortgage Advisers on a ‘fee-free’ basis, providing you meet the qualifying criteria.
