Mortgage Broker in Sheffield

A mortgage broker in Sheffield or an independent mortgage adviser as we like to call them is part of a number of people including conveyancing solicitors you should choose when purchasing a home. Whether is be your first or even 5th, getting the right advice when it comes to your mortgage is key to getting the best deal.

Getting it wrong could cost you thousands in additional interest over the mortgage term. Many products are designed to attract customers with fancy features such as cash back deals or low initial fees, however many of these products have a high rate of interest so the interest charged more than outweighs the benefits of any cash back deals. An independent mortgage broker can see past all this advertising as they work for you and will explain all your options to you.

Contact Abbey Lane Financial Associates today on 0114 287 3891 or email us at and one of our independent mortgage brokers will contact you.

IFA Sheffield

Many people know a financial adviser as an IFA, actually IFA stands for Independent Financial Adviser so unless your adviser is independent they cannot call themselves an IFA.

The difference between an IFA and a financial adviser lies in the products they can offer. An independent  financial adviser can offer products from the whole of market and work for you. A financial adviser works for the company they work under and will usually only offer their products.

This robs you of the opportunity to see other companies products which could be better. If you are looking for an IFA in Sheffield contact Abbey Lane Financial Associates today.

Mortgage Rates – What could be the solution

All the talk in the news about mortgage rates is getting some people worried about their existing mortgage arrangements. Some people are even panic buying fixed interest mortgage deals. This could be beneficial if rates do rise because your mortgage payments would be fixed for a set period (usually 2-5 years).

However recently the Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney, has changed his view on the economy stating that rates would remain low despite the recent fall in unemployment. This prompts analysts to predict that rates shouldn’t be much different from now by the end of 2014. With maybe slightly higher rates due to both tougher lending rules and the fact that we will be closer to an eventual base rate rise.
