So why do you need a mortgage adviser when you could look up 7 websites in 15 mins and know the best deal?
That’s simple, a good mortgage adviser will know the lenders that are willing to lend. They will match you and your self build project to the most suitable lender. Every lender has individual requirements that they want their borrowers to meet for a standard mortgage but this is even more prevalent for self-build mortgages. For instance some lenders will release money on the land whereas others will expect you to reach wind and watertight before releasing a penny.
A good mortgage adviser will also save you time and frustration when it comes to the drawn out mortgage application process. A typical self-build mortgage application can take up to 4-10 weeks in the current market and a mortgage advisor can take most of the burden off your hands.
