The Mortgage Bureau Reveals Advantages of Gaining Indpendent Mortgage Advice

November 19, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Peterborough, UK - As a buyer in today’s hectic property market, it’s important to avoid any conflict of interest to get the best deal. The Mortgage Bureau, a “whole of the market” broker located in Peterborough, works independently of both lenders and estate agents to offer clients totally impartial and completely confidential advice. As mortgage specialists, they are available to offer advice on first-time buying, remortgaging, buy-to-let, right-to-buy, buying with poor credit ratings, and obtaining appropriate life insurance.

“We’re proud to be one of the few mortgage advisors in Peterborough to be independent of both lenders and estate agents,” said Andrew Masterson, a representative of the company. “Our goal is to build long-term relationships with our clients, not just from the standpoint of home buying, but also as trusted financial advisors who can give them sound advice on lowering their mortgage costs and on life assurance.”

According to Masterson, the advantage of being independent of all lenders is that it makes it possible for The Mortgage Bureau to find the very best mortgage products. As a “whole of the market broker”, they have the entire mortgage market to access. Not being associated with specific lenders also means they can help clients choose and change providers if a better deal becomes obvious during the term of their existing loan.

By being independent of all estate agents, The Mortgage Bureau doesn’t share space or systems with agents who may not have the best interest of the client at heart. “Since we aren’t associated with estate agents, we only represent the client. There is no conflict of interest on our part,” explained Masterson. “Our clients can be sure that the property vendor does not know their budget and; therefore, our clients can negotiate the very best price on their house purchase.”

The Mortgage Bureau has been assisting clients for nearly 30 years and is available to help those in Peterborough and surrounding areas navigate through the process of remortgaging, buying a home for the first time, and buy-to-let mortgages.

The process of remortgaging does not usually involve moving to a new house or taking out a second mortgage on a property. Instead, it is the transfer of a mortgage from one lender to another or from one product to another from the same lender. Being able to remortgage is based on an individual’s circumstances and it can be a very costly endeavour. This is why having a capable advisor is so important. Whatever the reasons for remortgaging—to get a better interest rate, for more flexibility, to consolidate debt, or to release equity—it’s imperative to have someone qualified to tell a person whether it’s a good time to switch from one lender to another and when it’s not.

The first-time homebuyer has a special status under UK law enabling anyone who qualifies to save considerable amounts on Stamp Duty. But, identifying as a first-time homebuyer isn’t always easy since this status varies with each lender as well as the government’s own rules. To take advantage of this stamp-duty relief, an experienced advisor in this area is needed.

Those interested in buying property to let it out to tenants are not able to fund their purchase with a residential mortgage. Instead, they will have to seek a specialist buy-to-let mortgage. Besides choosing the best property, there are other things to consider, including the responsibilities of being a landlord and the tax implications. Qualifying and obtaining this kind of mortgage takes an advisor with special knowledge and expertise in this area.

“Taking advice from a qualified expert offers extra protection,” said Masterson. “If the mortgage turns out to be unsuitable, the client can complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)."

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jul 6, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.''

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Jul 6, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Jul 6, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Jul 6, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Jul 6, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
