Benefits Of Using An Independent Whole Of Market Mortgage Broker

Filed under: Mortgage — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 12:50 am

Copyright (c) 2010 Steve Wentworth

Introduction?The purpose of this article is to explain the benefits of seeking independent mortgage advice when looking to either purchase or remortgage a property.

So what are the different types of mortgage advice and where would you expect to find them? Non-advice – This type of mortgage broker offers the least consumer protection, they will simply ask a set of questions to narrow the customers requirements and thus filtering the number of mortgages available. They then present the customer with a small list of possible mortgages for the consumer to choose one appropriate. The consumer protection here is based on the script of questions the broker asks the script is a process determined prior to the consumer appointment and is impersonal therefore specific personal cirmcumstances are likely not to be assessed. It also assumes that the customers answers are factually correct and the final choice is made by the consumer (some further knowledge may be required by the consumer). Although no advice is offered these brokers do handle the arranging of the mortgage on the consumers behalf, and therefore dealing with all the chasing and removing stress from the process. Where would you expect non-advised brokers to exist? Well believe it or not many non-advised brokers are within the high street banks and building societies.

Advice-onlyThis type of services is where a mortgage adviser uses their knowledge and skills to provide the most suitable mortgage to suit a consumers personal circumstances. This will involve a full fact finding interview, affordability accessment, discussion on the consumers future plans and asperations, all of which provide key facts on a consumers requirements, and therefore a means for the adviser to identify suitable products. The adviser will not however, handle the arranging of the mortgage, and therefore the consumer would need to deal directly with the bank or buildings society to arrange the mortgage. These advisers generally do not exist alone this is often a service provided through the ‘Independent mortgage adviser’ type below. And often comes about when the most suitable mortgage is only offered direct through high street (i.e. not through mortgage advisers/brokers). The adviser would therefore offer an advice-only option to the client and often charge a fee for this service. Although the client must deal directly with the bank or building society they mortgage adviser often provides support to the consumer.

Tied mortgage advisersThese come in two forms ‘only offering mortgages from one lender or its own mortgages’ or multi-tied ‘only offer mortgages from a limited number of lenders’. This clearly limits the number of mortgage products available to match a consumers personal circumstances and in a lot of cases they may not be able to offer the most suitable mortgage product and therefore advice may result in the best mortgage they can offer, this could be woefully inadequate. Again found in high street branches. A consumer calls into their local building society branch and their in house mortgage adviser can only offer mortgage products from that building society. Consumer choice and mortgage product suitability are considerably reduced. Whats more high street branches often offer low mortgage rates/fees as a loss leader (marketing term to bring in business) and then try to sell their tied insurance products which are often also woefully inadequate and expensive.

Whole of market adviceBy far the best coverage these advisers can offer mortgages from all the UK mortgage lenders (having mortgage adviser/broker routes). The vast amount of mortgages available through these advisers is likely to cover the individual circumstances of a consumer. Whole of market mortgage advisers offer advice through conducting a full fact finding interview, affordability accessment, discussion on the consumers future plans and asperations and then can arrange the mortgage through the lender thus aleviating the stress which comes when purchasing a house. These advisers are usually separate firms often found in the yellow pages or through the internet they are sometimes linked to estate agents on an initial meeting mortgage advisers should declare if they are whole of market and this will be disclosed in the ‘Initial Disclosure Document’ they provide you. If you are not sure if an adviser is whole of market then ask them.

Independent whole of market mortgage adviserFinally this type of adviser has the ultimate scope of the mortgage market, not only can they offer mortgage advice from the whole of market (lenders with mortgage adviser routes) but can also offer an advice only process if they identify a high street direct deal is more suitable. The ‘Independent’ statement indicates that the adviser must offer the consumer a fee based service if required. This means that rather than the adviser taking commission as payment for the mortgage advice, the consumer can opt for paying a broker fee and any commission rebated to the consumer. The benefit of the fee based service is the consumer knows the adviser will not be swayed by higher commssion mortgage products when selected a suitable mortgage, however these days this is highly unlikely as the mortgage advice must prove to the regulator why a particular mortgage is most suitable. Some occassions where the commission is quite considerable this would mean the consumer could receive more money than the broker fee paid and therefore would be better of taking the fee based approach. Like the author of this document Independent mortgage advisers are usually separate firms often found on the high street, yellow pages or through the internet they are sometimes linked to estate agents. On an initial meeting an independent mortgage adviser would declare that they are whole of market and that they offer a fee based approach if required and this will be disclosed in the ‘Initial Disclosure Document’ they provide you. If you are not sure if an adviser is independent and/or whole of market then ask them.

Independent Mortgage Advice is Now Available for Borrowers Seeking Refinances

Filed under: Mortgage — Tags: , , , , , , , , — admin @ 12:46 am

During times when lending standards tighten mortgage companies have a tendency to advise their borrowers to “take what they can get.”  In certain cases this may be legitimate mortgage advice but we recommend seeking the advice of someone not affiliated with the transaction.

And by this we do not mean your brother-in-law….We recommend getting an independent review of your mortgage terms from a third party advisor such as Trusted Mortgage

This service affords borrowers the opportunity to have an independent mortgage advisor review the terms of the loan they are getting to make sure it is the best possible.  And while many mortgage lenders offer a similar claim in hopes of luring a borrower away – Trusted Mortgage is NOT a mortgage company.

Mortgage Advice for Important Decisions

Legitimate, independent advisors are specially trained to give mortgage advice to borrowers who are going through the lending process.  This includes answering questions that borrowers may be hesitant to ask their mortgage company for fear of being “steered” in the wrong direction.  Many of the questions cover common ground such as:

Certified loan advisors at will review the terms of your proposed mortgage loan and make specific recommendations for consumers to use in negotiating the best rate and closing costs with their lender. By serving as your advocate through the mortgage transaction they provide you with valuable information that will save you money, not only at the time of closing but over the life of your loan.

Independent Mortgage Advice That Won’t Solicit Your Loan

Don’t fall for another lending advertisement that offers to “review” your terms in hopes of soliciting your mortgage.  Go with a company such as ours who offers a legitimate outlet for mortgage advice.  As third party consultants Trusted-Mortgage-Advice wants to give borrowers peace of mind and to confirm that you are getting the best deal possible.
