Why use Whathouse.co.uk for your mortgage requirements?

Whether you are a first-time buyer looking for a new mortgage or aiming to switch home loans at the end of a deal with an existing lender, you want to find the best option to meet your needs. That's not always as easy as it seems, with fewer loans available than at the height of the market and with lenders being more cautious about the amount they'll lend and who they'll offer mortgages to.

You may value the security of a fixed rate, a simply want a cheap re-mortgage. First-time buyers may value no fees and a discount in the first couple of years, when cash is tight, and some homebuyers need a specialist product to suit their personal circumstances. All borrowers, regardless of personal status, want to be able to compare the best mortgages on the market and find out what might suit them best.

Which is where the Whathouse.co.uk mortgage adviser can help.
