    Thanks
    I applied for a mortgage through Contractor Financials & they were going through Furness & got a kick back so charged no fee.

    Funny thing is they did charge a fee once x weeks had elepsed since the original DiP though.

    They can still get commission from the lender but they now have to disclose this to you (inc amount) when they provide the mortgage info.

    Are you suggesting that brokers that charge client fees come up with good mortgage deals that don't have booking / valuation etc fees then?

    I've used ContractorFinancials in the past who don't charge fees to the client (but obviously get a kick back from the bank) and found them to be very good.

    Am interested where this thread goes as about to move house again.

    Nope. Banks launch dozens of deals a week. Very few are for sale in Branch, many are bespoke to individual brokers. They're priced to attract the customer and the broker. I recall a surprising conversation at one place I worked revealing that, due to the cost of acquiring business, they didn't make any money until year 3 of lending. If you feck off after 2 years then they lose out.

    So...You might find a product without a booking fee, but this will be priced with a higher interest rate (and vice versa). If you're borrowing a small amount of money then the lower the booking fee the better, it's generally better to pay a higher rate but not incur a grands worth of fees.

    Unless you're remortgaging to a new lender then you'll probably have to pay valuation fees. If you're putting a colossal deposit down, you might only pay for a surveyor to slow down as they drive past, but you'll still pay something.

    As ever, YMMV.

    I went through Yorkshire/Clydesdale bank. Couldn't fault them. Very simple to deal with and very contractor friendly. All of it was done over the phone and done very quickly. Like all of the banks they require a truckload of information.

    PM me if you want the contact details for the person I dealt with at their mortgage centre as she was pretty good.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Judging by the things they missed, most of the surveyors I've used didn't actually stop at the property

    Aye. And yet my latest one held up the process by imagining 'there is subsidence', which £400 of closer looking by a colleague confirmed should be 'there is no subsidence'.

    Shower of chunts.
