1. How long have you been in business?
Finance Advice Centre started trading on the 19th October 2014 – Our directors have worked In the industry for over 20years.
2. What’s the most common mistake people make when trying to get a mortgage?
The most common mistake would be going direct to their bank / building society, without using a mortgage broker or advisor who can compare every deal available on the market for them.
3. How much can you potentially save customers over the course of their mortgage?
Difficult to say as this all depends on the size of the mortgage and how often they would be willing to review, but typically by having a regular review on the mortgage you could save thousands if not tens of thousands.
4. Any advice for customers trying to get a buy to let mortgage?
Make sure the yield is going to sufficient as an investment. Careful consideration would need to be given regarding putting any buy to let property into a limited company, which can be more tax efficient.
5. What’s sets Finance Advice Centre apart from other companies?
Customer Service is at the absolute heart of everything we do, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our clients and if for any reason circumstances mean that it’s not possible to obtain a mortgage currently, we will always come up with an action plan in terms of what is needed to rectify any credit problems and advise when you can apply again.
6. How do you feel technology has changed the way people find mortgages?
In the past most people would have found us via using the yellow pages or newspaper advertisement whereas now days everything is available online. Technology has given companies like ours, a platform to reach a much wider audience meaning competition between mortgage brokers has heightened. Because of this being able to offer a client a simplified, hassle free & professional process becomes vital.
Technology has also made the mortgage application process to be speed up dramatically by using programmes such as email and skype, we’re also starting to see emergence of online ID & Documentation systems.
