For Mortgages we are independent mortgage advisers and we will recommend a mortgage product that is suitable
for you following an assessment of your personal needs and circumstances. This will include a detailed assessment of
We will consider all products and lenders that we have access to. This means we will not consider those lenders that are
only available by you going direct to them.
Where you are increasing your borrowing we will consider the merits of both a new first charge mortgage and securing
this by an additional mortgage on a second charge basis. You may have the option of a further advance from your
existing lender, however, we will only consider this where we are able to deal directly with the lender on your behalf. It
may be in your best interests to explore this option and look at the further alternative of an unsecured loan, as these
may be more appropriate for you.
For Non-investment protection contracts we are an intermediary and will act on your behalf when providing advice
and making our personal recommendation(s) to you. We will do this based on a fair and personal analysis of insurers
for term assurance, income protection, critical illness.
For general insurance contracts we are an intermediary and will act on your behalf when recommending an insurer
based on your demands and needs from a fair analysis of the market. The insurers we consider will be listed to you
when we carry out our research. It will be your responsibility to ensure the policy meets your demands and needs for
building and/or contents, private medical insurance, accident sickness and unemployment.
The Costs of our Service.
For Purchase and Remortgages we charge a fee structure of the following;
- £495 with no adverse events reported.
- £795 for up to 3 adverse events reported.
- £995 for 3 adverse events on your credit report/recent Bankruptcy or IVA.
For all clients returning to When The Bank Says No at the time their mortgage product expires, we do not charge a fee
for re-mortgage or product transfers for the lifetime of ownership of this property.
We charge a minimum fee of £995 up to £4495 depending on the complexity and loan size.
Bridging and Commercial.
We charge between 1% and 2.5% of the loan amount depending on complexity.
For refinancing of a bridging loan, we do not charge a new broker fee.
We will receive and retain any commission paid by the lender when your mortgage completes. This amount will be
confirmed by the lender in their disclosure document.
Should you wish, you can request to view the commission rates from each of the lenders we have considered at the time
that we make our recommendation to you.
Refund of fees.
Please note our fee will still be charged should the lender reject your mortgage application due to you not disclosing any
material information about your personal situation. It should also be noted we do not provide a refund should you
decide not to proceed with the mortgage loan after we have made a recommendation to you. We would however hold
the fee to place you with an alternative lender or if it is due to the property ‘falling through’ until you find an alternative
Non-Investment Protection and General Insurance Contracts
We do not charge a fee as we will receive commission from the provider/insurer after the policy has been placed on risk.
