Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
Do you want some good, professional, advice from someone you can trust?
When I was first looking for a home, I knew that I needed a mortgage, but had no idea where to start. I went up and down my local High Street, into nearly every bank or building society, with each coming out with the same scenario. A handful of leaflets and the promise of an appointment in the following week when a consultant would be free to see me.
Once I’d spoken to a few, each with their different products and plans, I was just as confused as when I started.
Did I want a Fixed, a Tracker, a Capped and Collared? Did I want Capital and Interest? How long did I want the term to be?
Any mortgage advisor I spoke to just complicated things even more!
Basically, I was lost in a world of jargon.
Boy, did I need some good mortgage advice!
Moving forward over twenty five years, please let me introduce myself. I’m Stephen Thatcher.
I’ve lived and worked around Gloucestershire nearly all of my life.
With over 25 years experience in helping people buy their homes or remortgaging, I am fully qualified with a Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice at levels 1,2&3 recognised by the Financial Services Authority.
I always remember the way I felt on my first steps and ensure that I do my best to make sure that every one of my clients are informed at every stage, ensuring that by the time any application is placed, they understand why we have gone for what we have gone for.
I treat my customers fairly by providing a personal, no obligation service. I listen to what you want and find the best mortgage that suits you from a comprehensive panel of lenders. With up to date search technology, including electronic submission direct to lenders, giving fast decisions and immediate application or cover when needed.
Being flexible, I am happy to meet you in the comfort of your own home, with an evening visit if required, at a time that is more convenient for you.
Why use me?
Because I can save you time, hassle, and most importantly money. No waiting in queues, no explaining things over and over again, just one professional advisor on your side guiding you every step of the way.
Comprehensive Lender Spread
With access to over 65 lenders, I am sure that I can find the best deal for you, no High Street has this many lenders.
A Fully Qualified Professional working on your behalf
Everything I do for you, from finding the right deal to arranging your buildings insurance will be completely professionally advised.
When I’m arranging your mortgage, you’re dealing with a qualified and professional specialist, not just a customer services representative or telesales consultant. I can save you hours of phone calls, queuing and having to take time off work to complete forms in a local branch during the day by dealing directly with underwriters on your behalf.
Have you just started out on your search?
I can search the market for the best deal for you that I can find. I also have exclusive deals that you won’t find on the High Street. I can go through the costs of moving and if necessary, get a Decision in Principle from a lender to put you in a strong position when offering on a property (whichever agent you buy through!).
Have you already found a deal?
If you have already started the long trawl of the High Street or internet yourselves, or indeed already spoken to a mortgage broker, I can search a comprehensive panel of lenders to make sure that the deal you may have found is the best deal possible for your circumstances.
Are you staying with your existing lender?
Sometimes it makes good sense to stay with your existing lender, however not always. I can make sure that the deal that you are sticking with is still the best for your circumstances. If it is, I’m happy to tell you so and you can feel reassured that you are doing the right thing. I may even still be able to help and process the application for you. I can use my professional experience to liaise with your lender and make sure that you don’t have the annoying experience of department-hopping and holding to get through to the right person for hours on end! In addition to that, you’ll have my mobile phone number and have access to me outside of office hours, when it’s convenient for you, not them!
Are you checking the comparison sites?
It’s a great start to get an idea of the best deal, however a lot of the comparison sites have out-of-date information and upon clicking for further details will sell your details to the highest bidder, a stranger who will then try to contact you to get your business.
Whatever your situation, I’d love to be of help and assure you of the highest professional standards at a local level.
Are you protected?
I feel passionately that it’s not just my job to get you the home, but also to help you keep it. We will go through all of the options together to taylor a package of protection options to suit your budget and help you sleep sound at night knowing that your home, lifestyle and loved ones are financially protected if the worst might happen.
It couldn’t be easier to get started
Feel free to contact me anytime…
…and let me do the rest!
When not performing minor mortgage miracles, I live in the beautiful village of Nympsfield, high up in the Cotswold Hills with great access to Stonehouse, Stroud, Nailsworth and Dursley, with my wife, Jane, our troublesome whippets, Poppy, William and Rufus, and a Dalek called Salvador. I can also be spotted making a fool of myself with a local Morris Dancing Side, watching my favourite football team, Forest Green Rovers or even playing my Mandolin in some Folky Pubs!
Morris: Drinkers with a dance problem!
Don’t worry, the receptionist is friendly!
And the staff are only too eager to help!
I look forward to meeting you soon.
