Mortgage Advice Service

Our mortgage advisers help clients with a wide range of situations and needs and have experience working with clients from across the UK, securing their first mortgage and finding the best re-mortgaging terms. They will take the time to understand your individual circumstances and use their expertise to identify and recommend the most appropriate mortgage for your needs.

Our telephone-based Mortgage Advice Service provides convenience, expertise, and a central point of contact to help manage an application towards a successful completion.

We may charge a fee at the point of application for a mortgage, depending on the amount you borrow and the complexity of your own individual circumstances. We may also receive a commission from the lender. Full details will be provided to you.

Please be aware your home is at risk if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or loan secured on it.

Contact the dedicated EY support team on 0800 028 0208 who will be happy to put you in touch with an expert.

Before you invest, make sure you feel comfortable with the level of risk you take. Investments aim to grow your money, but they might lose it too.
