Who are Graeme Black Financial Services?
We are a family owned and run business offering a personal approach to sourcing mortgages and protecting clients over the longer term. We believe in establishing a long term relationship with our clients and keeping in regular contact to ensure that our advice and recommended solutions are reviewed regularly to maintain suitability at a competitive price.
Why do you need mortgage advice?
Most people will only need to arrange a mortgage deal once every few years so this means that they will have very little experience when it comes to finding a better deal. When looking for the most suitable deal for you, our mortgage advisers have access to a comprehensive range of mortgages from across the market. Your existing bank is only likely to offer you its own range of mortgage products.
Comparing Mortgage Rates
At Graeme Black Financial Services we have access to hundreds of mortgage deals available from a range of different lenders. Our comparison software allows us to compare a range of deals that are available at any given time based on your details. Once we have found the most suitable deal available, we can process your application on your behalf, aiming to save you time, hassle and money.
Sourcing the most suitable mortgage deal available is only half the battle when it comes to making your mortgage application. Finding competitive rates is one thing but getting it can be a different story. There are many different reasons why people are declined for a mortgage; failing the affordability calculator, length of time in employment, self-employment, low credit score, to name a few. Every time you unsuccessfully apply for a mortgage your credit score may be adversely affected & being declined numerous times will undoubtedly affect your credit rating and could result in you being unable to secure a mortgage in the future.
Risks of not getting advice
Getting advice rather than arranging a mortgage without any advice means that, if for some reason the mortgage turns out to be unsuitable for you later on, you’ll have more rights if you have reason to make a complaint. For example, you could make a complaint of financial misselling if the advice you were given turned out to be unsuitable for you. Without the advice, you will have to take full responsibility for your mortgage decision making.
If you don’t take advice you could end up with the wrong mortgage for your situation, which would be a costly mistake in the long run or being rejected by your chosen lender because you didn’t understand the restrictions clearly or what circumstances the mortgage was designed for.
