Purchasing/Moving Home

Moving home can be stressful enough before even taking into consideration all the options available across the mortgage market.

At Nicholson Brown we believe that forward planning is essential to take away the hassle from a property transaction. Our whole of market mortgage brokers are here to provide you with the right advice and guidance, removing some of the worry and stress that seems to happen far too often in a house purchase.

An ideal time to assess your options is before even marketing your current property, here our advisers can help work out your maximum borrowing capacity and affordability, giving you the comfort of knowing that you can accept an offer on your current home and still afford the move onwards.

Have an existing mortgage?

If you already have an existing mortgage on your current home it may be more beneficial to transfer this across to a new property instead of starting afresh, for example, to avoid paying an ‘Early Repayment Charge’ or keep a more competitive product. Our advisers will deal directly with your current lender to ascertain the exact options they are able to offer and also compare this to the deals available across the market.

Everyone’s personal circumstances are different and can often be incredibly complex. As such, lenders have varying criteria and it’s our job to ensure you apply to the right lender who meets your needs with the most competitive product available.

In addition to saving you the hassle of dealing with a lender directly, our independent brokers will also:

  • Fully explain the house buying process
  • Detail all the typical costs involved such as solicitors, valuations, surveys and stamp duty
  • Untangle all the jargon
  • Define your borrowing capacity

Why Use An Adviser?

The mortgage market is complex and constantly changing with lenders varying rates, fees and criteria subject to their appetite to lend.
