Banks Taking Too Long for a Mortgage

It’s an exciting time arranging a mortgage for a new property. It’s the first step on the ladder to achieving your property – securing the finance. So, it’s not surprising that you would wish for the process to run smoothly and quickly.

Many people are turning to a mortgage broker for assistance in arranging a mortgage because waiting times going directly to the bank are sometimes over 6 weeks for an initial appointment. The recent changes in the mortgage market mean lenders offering direct to consumer financial products have to do a lot more work to remain compliant when selling mortgages. This means it can take longer to arrange a mortgage via a bank than through a mortgage broker.

This has led more people to contact a mortgage broker, but there are other benefits of using a mortgage expert.

Reasons to Use a Mortgage Broker for your Mortgage

We’ve listed our top 5 reasons for using a mortgage broker when applying for a loan for a property.

  1. Get the best deal: Your advisor may be able to obtain a mortgage deal which is not currently available on the high street.
  2. Get advice: When you’re applying for a mortgage it’s vital to select the provider you have the best opportunity being approved by. Failure to be accepted would leave a “footprint” on your credit file and it could make obtaining your mortgage harder when to apply with another lender.
  3. Hassle-free: Your financial expert will do all of the leg work for you, saving you the frustration of sourcing and applying for your mortgage.
  4. Speed: A financial advisor at ER Network can usually meet with a client within 48 hours and get the process underway quicker than going directly.
  5. Application: When your application is ready to be submitted your financial advisor will ensure the necessary documentation is completed, giving you the best chance of being approved for your mortgage.
