My situation was not simple, many brokers were hesitant to take it on. Which? Mortgage Advisers quickly found me more than one option to choose from. There were a few hurdles but they were active and responsive throughout. I’d recommend them highly.

Extremely pleased with the service from Which? Mortgage Advisers! Always available if we had any queries or needed confirmation of anything. Regularly kept us updated of what was happening and a very friendly team. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

L Smith

I originally attempted to deal directly with the providers but, as a first time buyer, found this approach time confusing and daunting. Which? made the process more straightforward. They were very helpful, informative and responded promptly to emails.

J Barrett

Our adviser took the time to ensure we fully understood the different packages available to us. He was on hand to answer our queries and assist when our circumstances changed part way through the process. I cannot recommend this service highly enough.
