We give expert mortgage advice, find the right mortgage for you and do all the hard work to apply for a mortgage – completely free of charge. We do not need to charge you a large broker fee to get a mortgage, we get paid by the mortgage lender after your home purchase or remortgage is completed.

Most mortgage brokers get paid by the lender this way. It’s called a procuration fee or ‘proc fee’.

For insurance products, we’re paid by the insurer when you complete the purchase and your cover starts.

The details of the fees we earn from lenders and insurers are set out in the product information we send you. What we pay our advisers reflects their expertise in finding you the right mortgage or insurance. We do not offer them incentives to pick specific lenders or insurers.

Once you have provided your broker with a few basic details, they will typically handle most of the subsequent complexities on your behalf. Working with an broker also means gaining access to honest and personal information, which is rarely available directly from a bank or lender.

There are different levels of approval throughout the process of getting a mortgage agreed so it depends what part of the process you are in. After speaking to our mortgage consultant we can take you through every step to all three of these agreed for you:

  • Affordability Check – Some clients are at the very beginning of their mortgage application process, therefore they might not currently have saved the correct deposit or be in a positions to move forward. We can offer a basic affordability check and provide further information to clients to let them know what they need to do and where they need to get to, to get them mortgage ready.
  • An agreement in principle can be obtained instantly in some circumstances but usually will take a few hours if needed that fast. This is where we gather all of the relevant information from yourself, search our panel of lenders, find a suitable lender who fits with your affordability and then run through the lenders credit checking system to make sure this fits with there criteria. Once this has been done the lender will issue us with a certificate stating the amount you can borrow in principle. This puts you in a perfect position to find a property and start negotiations with the estate agent.
  • Mortgage Offer is where both you and the property you are purchasing have been approved by the lender. We have discussed your monthly payment, insurance protection and found the right mortgage for you. Approval requires a valuation to be conducted on the property and this whole process on average will take 2/3 weeks. Each application is different though, it doesn’t matter whether you are a first time buyer, home mover or buy to let investor, some applications take 1 week and some can take up to 4 weeks depending on the full situation.

Yes, our brokers at Alexander Southwell Mortgages bring a wealth of experience across various mortgage types, including the increasingly popular buy-to-let mortgage. For more detailed information, we invite you to visit our Buy to Let Mortgage page. There, you’ll find insights and guidance tailored to this specific type of investment, reflecting our deep understanding and expertise in the field.

Lenders frequently mention the ‘LTV’ requirement, which stands for Loan to Value Ratio. This term describes the relationship between the amount of the loan and the value of the property you’re purchasing. For instance, if you’re borrowing £255,000 for a property worth £300,000, the LTV is 85% (255,000 divided by 300,000). The remaining 15% represents your equity in the property. Understanding LTV is crucial in assessing your mortgage options and requirements.

When applying for a mortgage, you might encounter several types of fees, including:

  • Valuation Fee: This is charged by the lender to assess the property’s value, usually paid upfront with your application.
  • Solicitors’ Fees: These are for the conveyancing work done by your solicitor. You’ll typically pay a portion upfront upon instructing them, with the balance due upon completion.
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax: A tax on property purchases.
  • Lender Arrangement Fees: Charged for setting up your loan, this can often be added to your loan amount, though it will increase the total loan size.
  • Booking Fee: This is for reserving the funds for your mortgage, generally paid alongside your application.
  • Estate agents fee: If you are selling a property and not a first time buyer, then you will need to factor this in to your new home costs

And a note on broker fees: While some other mortgage brokers charge up to 1% of the mortgage amount, at Alexander Southwell Mortgages, we operate on a fee-free basis, so that’s one less cost for you to worry about!
