Terms of Business
All work to the point of application is at our cost. A fee of £495 is payable when you submit a formal mortgage application after we have obtained a decision in principle.
If the mortgage does not proceed to completion, at our discretion we can transfer the fee to an alternative application. The fee also covers any subsequent remortgages on the same property.
For regular clients fees may be reduced or waived. Terms and conditions apply so please contact us for more information.
Our fees for Bridging and Commercial depend on the complexity of the case and will be agreed with you before any application is submitted. If the loan is complex we may charge a higher fee of up to 1% of the loan amount.
YOUR PROPERTY MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR ANY DEBT SECURED ON IT.
