How a London Mortgage Broker Can Help You

Mortgage Tips

Posted by: Adriaan Driessen

You’ve found the home of your dreams and you want to buy it. Firstly, congratulations! Secondly, you now need a mortgage in order to act on it.

When it comes to something as big as a mortgage, it’s incredibly important that you work with a professional who can guide you through the process and ensure everything is done the proper way. As a leading London mortgage broker, it is my duty to look after you and ensure you are successful in your mortgage journey.

But how exactly does a mortgage professional work, and how can one help you? I’m glad you asked!

As a qualified professional in London, I am a licensed broker who meets with my clients to learn their personal needs and situation. Once I do that, I compare mortgages and rates from a number of lenders with whom I work with on a daily basis to find the best one that suits you.

Perhaps the biggest difference between a big bank and a Dominion Lending broker in London is that I am not tied to any single bank, meaning I am also not tied to a specific rate or mortgage product. Instead, I have access to several mortgage options and rates where I am able to negotiate to get the most ideal fit for clients. Once I have your application and know your needs, I take your mortgage to the lenders and search for the lowest rates, terms and conditions and come back to you with several options to choose from.

Additionally, a good mortgage broker will be sure to explain the entire process to you, what the terms mean, what you can expect, and will take initiative when it comes to the progress on your mortgage. They can also keep you updated with mortgage rate trends and any potential changes that could be coming.

I believe that no client should be left wondering what the status of their mortgage is, and I make it a priority of mine to keep you as informed as possible on where things are at.

Perhaps the best thing about working with a broker (aside from the personal relationship you can develop) is that they are generally free! Brokers aren’t paid by the clients – we are paid by the lenders once your mortgage is approved.

When looking for a broker, it’s important to speak with the person and get a feel for them to ensure they are someone you can work with and trust. The entire mortgage process can be complex, but a broker can make the journey a hassle-free experience.
