As well as the right mortgage adviser, any mortgage requires a solicitor, a valuation or survey and the right insurance in place to proceed. Protection insurance, to help ensure borrowers and their families can stay in their home in the event of death, ill health or redundancy, is also crucial to consider. Tax advice, foreign exchange, estate planning and wider financial advice can be other important aspects of buying property and taking out a mortgage.
Much like the mortgage itself, arranging these partners is best done in advance of any property search or mortgage application. We actively guide clients through their partner selection, ensuring each is in place in good time, and offering options when required.
A selection of partners Altura and our clients have worked with previously are presented below. Please contact your adviser for an introduction.
