    At least something is still going down on you.

    Thanks for the advice, apologies for posting in the incorrect area?

    I did actually speak to CMME but was not impressed.

    I spoke to another company yesterday evening who doesnt charge any fees at all. They get paid by the lender at completion, which I thought every broker did anyway! I assumed this would mean I have to borrow more but the rate he quoted and total cost was lower than both the companies I had already spoken to (whilst he said he would need to talk through my circumstances before confirming fully)

    I had a guilty conscience and fessed up to the agent about Santander so I've got a sit down appointment with their lady today, they have agreed to waive their fee if I use them and he is adamant she can help even being an interim so fingers crossed I can make it all work.

    Regarding borrowing money, I am getting almost zero interest on my savings and the mortgage will be £300 less than the rent whilst getting an asset that grows so for me its a no brainer to do it now. Plus I'm not getting any younger!

    Out of control inflation is all we've had since 2008. Wage inflation is non-existent whilst debts accumulate. The only option left is a currency reset. This is why central banks are gathering gold. Venezuela's gold was ceased by the thieving BoE.

    The majority of contractor mortgage brokers charge a fee for mortgage advice. They range from a cost such as £295 like ourselves to other brokers charging £995 upwards.

    QE will sort out any credit crunch. Nothing to see here.

    However, hyperinflation is a genuine concern and borrowing now would be a smart move since a few years after Brexit you will be sitting on top of a desirable asset with almost nothing to pay. But, in such situations you will likely to looking at sourcing rabbits for your daily meal than worry about your mortgage repayment.

    Something similar also recently happened to Fleet Mortgages who are another specialist / challenger lender. They pulled their entire product range in January and are still waiting for their next tranche of funds to be made available.

    Bottom line is: Don't have debt. Pay off what little you have and quickly.

    Hi Gordon thanks for the note. £295 I could stomach but nearly £1000 just seems too much, why is there such a huge difference in cost if the mortgage is the same?

    I've now sorted it with a guy who understood my way of working and for no fee, he said the lender pays him. All he asked is that I pass on his company details if I am happy.

    He is planning my application now and has spoken to the estate agent for me, so far so good and at no cost to me!

    Nope. Poor people and even the unemployed have them.
