One of our advisers will get in touch and have a chat about what you’re looking to do, discuss your potential options and answer any questions you may have.

At this point we’ll also look at what some of our lenders will need, this may change what options we give you.

We will look at how many years of accounts you have (proof of income), the amount of deposit you have, how your credit history looks and your age.
