How we can help
Everyone’s needs are different, hence the process of getting the right mortgage can appear tedious and complicated at times. This complexity can be compounded further when questions like employment situation, income sources and property type are raised. Simply, the right mortgage is the one that is best for your own personal circumstances. We are here to help solve these complex issues and find the right solutions for you.
Here at Harpenden, our mortgages are individually underwritten, that way we get to completely understand your specific circumstances and allows us to provide mortgages that meet your needs. We welcome a variety of different circumstances so if you feel your situation is unique, Harpenden are here to help.
We deal exclusively with intermediaries; therefore, we advise new mortgage customers to obtain independent mortgage advice. This approach is designed to ensure you receive the most appropriate mortgage advice across the market and is part of our continued commitment to responsible lending. When you have found the property you want, speak with your mortgage advisor and discuss your financial situation with them.
If you do not already know an independent mortgage advisor, or you wish to check that the advisor you are dealing with is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, you can search the Financial Services register here: https://register.fca.org.uk/s/
