While spending your lunchtimes and Saturdays walking from one bank or building society to another will normally get you a mortgage, a mortgage adviser may well be able to get you better terms.
A Mortgage Adviser will use powerful computer databases to sort through the vast range of mortgages and identify the most suitable ones for your current circumstances.
That done, a mortgage adviser will also oversee the process of actually completing on the mortgage, ensuring that all the parties (lawyers, lender, yourself) etc have all the right documentation at the right time. This is an essential part of the service, as all too often communication breakdowns lead to otherwise unnecessary delays and complications, and their role is to ensure that all progresses as smoothly as possible.
