So you have had a meeting with a mortgage adviser and now you can’t get hold of them!? Maybe you have already got a mortgage application underway and the mortgage adviser or mortgage broker is not replying to your calls. If this sounds like you then this article will help solve this mortgage headache for you.
Reasons to instruct a new mortgage advisor
If your mortgage adviser or mortgage broker is not contactable or even has completely disappeared off the face of the earth. Either contact the mortgage lender directly or find a mortgage broker who will be able to take your mortgage application over for you.
In this guide, we will take you step by step through what you need to do to progress your mortgage application if your mortgage consultant or advisor is not contactable.
I’ve only had an initial meeting with my mortgage advisor
It may be that you have seen a mortgage advisor at an estate agent or mortgage broker but you have not got as far as getting the mortgage submitted. Don’t panic! Simply Google a free mortgage broker near me and you will get a list of mortgage brokers that do not charge for their services.
You will have lost no time and the mortgage broker should be able to take over from where you left off with your previous advisor. Make sure they are decent size mortgage brokers so the same thing won’t happen again to you! Also, take 5 minutes to read their Trustpilot and Google reviews to make sure the mortgage broker offers great customer service.
My mortgage application has been submitted to a mortgage lender but has not been offered yet
Once again you need to find someone to help you. Find a broker that has access to the entire market mortgage broker for the best mortgage deal. (see above) The broker will be able to contact the bank or building society and find out how far your application has progressed. They should be able to take everything over from your previous mortgage consultant, estate agent, or mortgage broker and proceed with your application and see it through to completion for you.
Depending on how long has passed it may be worthwhile double-checking the mortgage deals that could be open to you by switching mortgage lenders
I have a mortgage approved with a mortgage offer
Once you have a mortgage offer things become a little less complicated. On the offer, you will have the interest rate and also the name of the bank or building society that the mortgage will be with. Call them and ask for their advice. It should be business as usual for the majority of mortgages that have been offered as the lender will be able to see it through to completion.
There are a few lenders that will not progress the mortgage unless you have a broker in which case you will find one. One lender that doesn’t deal with customers directly is Birmingham Midshires (BM Solutions).
If you have any problems on any of the above or you just want to chat through your options then we are one of the UK’s leading mortgage brokers and have a team of 22 mortgage advisers and administrators on hand to give free mortgage advice and help.
How do mortgage lenders react to a mortgage advisor disappearing?
Each bank and building society will react differently to your mortgage consultant or advisor going off radar! Find a mortgage broker so you can get sound mortgage advice as it may save time by switching mortgage lenders.
Usually, it makes sense to switch mortgage providers if your application has only just been submitted. If several weeks have passed and you are near an offer you may need to stay with the same mortgage provider. If you switch lenders that is in a position to underwrite your case within a week and you may even get a new mortgage deal with lower monthly repayments.
