Bobby Sherlock: Director

We can advise you about the different types of mortgages and help you decide what best suits your circumstances. This might be a fixed rate mortgage, variable rate mortgage, a tracker mortgage or offset mortgage or perhaps another mortgage advice solution entirely.

Our mortgage advisers will then research the market, discuss your options, and recommend the most appropriate deal for you based on interest rates, loan periods, repayment methods and interest payments.

Our mortgage advice services are ideal for:

First Time Buyers

If you’re buying your first home, mortgage advice can seem complicated and overwhelming.

Our expert advisers will help you understand the process and support you to achieve your dream of owning your first property.

We can access deals and incentives, which may include cashback on your mortgage, reduced mortgage interest rates or lower levels of deposit against your property value.

Help to Buy

Help to Buy is a Government scheme to help first-time home buyers get a mortgage with a small deposit.  There are two types of Help to Buy schemes, the Help to Buy Shared Ownership (or Shared Equity) Scheme and the Help to Buy Equity Loan. 

Our expert advisers can help you understand which scheme is suitable for your needs, find the best mortgage deals to support your shared ownership or equity loan and guide you through the whole process.


A remortgage is where you take out a new mortgage on a property you already own, either to replace your existing mortgage, or to borrow more money against your property. You can remortgage without moving to a new house and there are various reasons and benefits for considering a better mortgage deal.

Remortgaging may not be right for everyone and getting good advice is essential.

Small Business Owners

If you run your own business or are self-employed as a sole trader or limited company director, our mortgage advisers and mortgage brokerage service can understand your accounts and earnings and help you present them to potential lenders to find the right mortgage solution for you.

Protecting your home and family

Once we’ve achieved the mortgage you need, we can help you to secure your home and finances for the future, with buildings and contents insurance, mortgage income protection and life insurance policies.
