How long have you been a mortgage broker in Derby & Belper?

You’ll benefit from my three decades of experience of advising people in Derby on their mortgage. I’ve arranged thousands of mortgages in that time and I have over 200 five star reviews on Google.

How much do you charge for mortgage advice in Derby?

Usually I do not charge a fee, though this will depend on your exact circumstances.

Do you only give mortgage advice in Derby & Belper or can you help people elsewhere too?

I help people elsewhere too. Most of my clients are for people living in Derby, Belper, and Derbyshire though.

I’ve slowly got clients further afield as they have moved away from Derbyshire but continue to use me to review their mortgage. And have then recommended me to their friends so I now have groups of clients all over the UK.

Do you help Self Employed people?

Yes. I’ve been helping the self-employed people of Derby get mortgages for as long as I can remember. As I’m self-employed it’s important to me that self-employed people know their full mortgage options.

People come to me all the time saying their own bank, or current mortgage lender, won’t help them because they are self-employed. The way banks treat self-employed people varies greatly but a local mortgage broker like myself can reveal your full options.

Do you help first time buyers in Derby?

Absolutely. I’ve helped hundreds of people get their first mortgage in Derby & Belper. First time buyers are some of my favourite clients as seeing you get your own home is so rewarding.

What about remortgages?

I keep in contact with all my clients to make sure they are kept on their rightdeal available by either remortgaging them or arranging a product transfer with their existing lender.

If you’re a new client I can still help you remortgage in order to get the rightdeal, make home improvements, or reduce your total monthly payments.

Do you help with buy to let mortgages?

I’ve helped many clients become landlords for the first time and review their buy to let mortgages regularly to help them get a return on their money.

Is it best to use a mortgage broker local to Derby if I’m buying in Derby?

Whether you use a mortgage broker in Derby or elsewhere you should get the same result. What sets me apart from other mortgage brokers in Derby is my constant communication with you so you know what is going on every step of the way.

Can you get mortgages for people moving house in Derby & Belper?

Absolutely. My clients say that knowing that the mortgage on the new home was taken care of made moving house a lot less stressful!

Do you do home visits or is everything online?

Since 2020 I’ve done everything online. One day I may return to visiting people local to Derby and Belper to help them with their mortgage, but I believe most people find it easier to do everything online now.

If you need an appointment in the evening, out of working hours, this is not a problem at all.

Do you employ other mortgage brokers or will I speak to you?

The business consists of me and my son Jamie. When you get in touch we’ll listen to your situation and either Jamie or I will see your mortgage right through to completion.
