The best thing about our job as a Mortgage Broker in Harrogate is helping our clients navigate through the often stressful experience of buying a home or remortgaging. It can be a complicated process and our clients love having someone on their side from start to finish to ensure they get the right Mortgage Advice in Harrogate.
We do pride ourselves on providing a highly responsive service, communication is everything in this job. We work from a large panel of well-known high street banks and building Societies to ensure our clients get the best deal available to them but we also work with smaller, more specialist Lenders too for when we come across clients who don’t “tick all the boxes”.

Your free mortgage consultation with a Mortgage Advisor in Harrogate will last for approximately 30 mins. They will then recommend a mortgage for you, one that you have no obligation for you to accept if you do not wish to. Proceeding with the mortgage is completely your choice.
As a part of our service as a fast and friendly Mortgage Broker in Harrogate, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for you and your personal circumstances. A credit check will then required ahead of obtaining an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been taken out, a formal mortgage offer can then be issued to you.
To avoid being disappointed part way into your process if you don’t get the property you had eyes on, we recommend you obtain an Agreement in Principle ahead of schedule, before you begin viewing properties in Harrogate. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making any offers to a vendor, as this can aid with your bargaining position.
An Agreement in Principle will generally have a shelf life of between 30 and 90 days, depending on the lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, get back in touch with your mortgage advisor and they can get this refreshed for you.
If you are looking to do something like debt consolidation or any potential home improvements, you may have the option of taking out a second mortgage in Harrogate. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property for other uses, such as for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.
The minimum deposit a customer will be required to have when purchasing a house in Harrogate with a mortgage lender, is typically 5%. This figure can be somewhat higher if you have had any previous credit problems.
If you have had any kind of credit problems previously, there is a chance you can still get a mortgage. Unfortunately for this, you may possibly be required to put down a higher deposit than usual, typically 15% of the property purchase price.
Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts to the lender, you may then be able to obtain a mortgage on the property you wish to buy. Most lenders will use a combination of your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas others may go off your net profit.
An employee will generally be required to submit at least three payslips for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts if they are Self Employed. You will also need to provide your mortgage lender with proof of ID, address and the last 3 months’ bank statements.
Our free mortgage consultation offered to all customers will typically last somewhere near 30 mins or so. The members of our dedicated mortgage advice team are able to turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours, with a formal mortgage offer taking roughly about three weeks on average.
Our Managing Director Malcolm founded the company with his wife Amy in 2009. He still loves seeing customers to this day and he eats, sleeps and breathes Mortgages!
His real passion is to help customers get the best mortgage deal available to them and guiding First Time Buyers safely through the daunting process of getting onto the property ladder.
His most embarrassing moment came some years ago when he accidentally got locked in a customer's bathroom - don't ask!
