Our advisers can help you choose the solution that is right for you and help take the stress out of the whole process.
What we do
Your Miles & Barr adviser will search a comprehensive range of mortgages across the marketplace with many of the high street lenders you will be aware of, such as Nationwide, Halifax and Santander and some you may not know like Aldermore and Platform to name a couple. This will ensure they find you the right lender and mortgage product to meet your needs.
Behind every adviser is a very strong administrative team working on your behalf. They will update you every few days to let you know exactly what is happening on your case, ensuring you are stress free.
Your adviser will complete the paperwork for you and submit your application, your administrator will then liaise with the lenders, solicitors insurance companies and look after everything until your mortgage completes. Our customers are our number one priority, so our mortgage advisers and administrators will always be prepared to go that extra mile to provide a top level of service in a very personal way.
Once your mortgage completes we will continue to stay in touch with you annually to ensure your mortgage and insurance options remain appropriate taking into account any change in your personal circumstances.
We pride ourselves our customer service and doing a good job for our homeowners, which results in many clients being referred to us by our existing customers, so we have a referral scheme to ensure we can give you something back!
