"We just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your help with our house purchase.
Everything was explained to us so clearly and we appreciate you always being there to answer any questions we had.
We’re so grateful for how quickly you were able to get our mortgage offer issued and the whole process was very quick with no problems.
Everyone told us buying a house would be one of the most stressful things we would do but it was very much the opposite! Very speedy, no issues at all and we had all the help we needed.
We’re very grateful for your help and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to all our friends and family. Will definitely be in touch when our current fixed rate ends! " Ellen, Dec 2017
"I have used brokers a few times before but have always spent a lot of time chasing them for an update. With you the experience has been totally different. I knew what was going on all the time and I think you communicate well. You know the market and got me a decision in principle within 24 hours. I'm really pleased with your work, and I know a broker who is commission-free but I still think it would work out better next time if I gave you a call instead! " Jacob, July 2017
"I am very pleased with how you dealt with the mortgage. I went from being very worried that I would not be able to afford a house to being very confident in your ability to sort something for me. You worked extremely hard and it's allowed me to provide a wonderful home for my daughter and I am extremely grateful. I would definitely recommend you." Lorna, August 2017
"Pete at Mortgages for Business was great from the first time we spoke up until we moved into our family home. He understood our individual needs and plans and guided us through every step making it a stress free experience. He was different to brokers we had previously dealt with, making the experience personal. I would recommend family and friends to use him." Greig & Hayley. August 2017
"Pete is very knowledgeable and thorough on all the products and services that were available from a large range of lender's and explained the option's clearly so I could make the best financial choice. Throughout the mortgage process Pete was friendly and kept me updated at every stage, he went above and beyond to help and managed to push the mortgage through in a extremely tight time scale. I can't recommend Pete enough, I will definitely refer him to family and friends....10/10 service!" James, August 2017
A mortgage is probably the biggest financial commitment you will ever take on but where should you go for advice? How do you start looking and how can you be sure that you made the right choice when there are thousands of options available? Pete Coombes has some answers.
If you need to maximise your borrowing, we have direct access to a very special, limited edition range of residential mortgages which are available up to six times your income. Yes, that’s right, SIX times income. Compared to other mortgage lenders, this is unheard of as the majority cap their income multiples at 5 x income and some at even less than this figure.
Currently on the lender’s reversion rate? Coming to the end of a specific fixed or variable rate? Simply want to know quickly if you could reduce your monthly mortgage payment? Read on…
With more employees offering zero-hour contracts than ever before it is no surprise that the number of enquiries we receive in this regard has risen. Pete Coombes, residential mortgage broker explains what options are available to those employed on this basis.
