You don't know it yet but their chasing of estate agents and helping with the sale will be invaluable.

It’s very common during the house buying process for there to be some delays. There is so much to do it can be hard to keep up. Your mortgage adviser will be there to help you chase the other parties to help things run smoothly.

  • Chasing of the estate agents and conveyancers for you
  • Support with making an offer and negotiating a good price
  • Help to find a conveyancer if you need it
  • Guidance on getting a survey arranged on the property
  • Discuss insurance, wills and protection
  • And frequently keeping you updated on progress

It’s like having someone on your side helping you achieve your dream.

“Alex was always on hand to answer any questions and kept us informed at every stage. Excellent communication and he ensured we got the mortgage that was right for us. Couldn’t recommend Alex highly enough.”

If you are serious about buying it's never too early to talk to somebody.

Our service is dedicated to helping you

Choosing the right mortgage adviser for you is an important decision.

You want a mortgage adviser you can trust.

Our recommended mortgage advisers are dedicated to helping you.

A. Galea

“Brilliant service from Alexander. I would recommend him and his expert services to anyone. He was amazing throughout the process. Ours was not an easy application, but Alex took on the challenge and went all to way to help us get what we needed. He chased the solicitors and made sure we had a smooth transaction. We love our new home and this could ONLY be possible with Alex’s help”

Get matched based on your circumstances

Getting advice that is right for your circumstances is important. You want to choose someone who is experienced in cases just like yours. Here are some of the people our advisers help regularly.

First-time buyers, home movers and people looking to remortgage who want to receive a personal service

If you want a mortgage adviser who cares, then we can help you find them. Buying a home is an exciting time, but there can also be a lot of questions. Our customers really benefit from the extra help and support they receive.

All employment types from Full-time, Self-employed, Contractors, Directors and Zero hours

Just because you are not in full-time employment doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to buy your own home. We have advisers who work with specialist lenders to match your situation.

Mortgage advice for special circumstances like bad credit or those turned down elsewhere

Our mortgage advisers love a challenge. If you have complicated circumstances due to past credit issues or have struggled to get a mortgage else where we have advisers who can work with you. In some cases that might mean giving you a plan to work to for the future but you might be surprised.

Help to buy and shared ownership and key workers

The government schemes such as Help to buy and Shared ownership are great but they can be hard to work out. We have mortgage advisers who know what to look out for and which lenders support these schemes.

Buying a new build property

When it comes to buying a new build property things can need to move really fast. Having an experienced mortgage adviser who is familiar with the new build process and working with developers can help.

Bank of Mum and Dad, grandparents and gift deposits.

Many first-time buyers receive help from their parents, grandparents or family to get on the property ladder. From gift deposits to specialist mortgages that help you borrow more, for many people, it’s the difference between buying now and waiting years.

How does it work? 6 Steps to success

The first step is to speak to us about what type of mortgage adviser you want. Once we understand your needs, we put them in touch with you so you can get the advice you need.

Step 1 – Get your personalised recommendation

We chat to you about your situation and what you want in an adviser, before finding the right adviser for you. Its a quick call and requires answers to a few easy questions.

Step 2 – Arrange a call/meeting

You can then arrange your first call/meeting with your chosen mortgage adviser at a time to suit you.

Step 3 – Get the advice you need

They take the time to explain everything to you. Leave with a clear understanding of where you stand and your next steps. Potentially getting a decision in principle from a lender to make sure you are eligible.

Step 4 – Get the ongoing support you deserve

If you are buying then you are free to now start viewing properties. When you find the property you want to buy, you can let your adviser know, and they will help you from there with whatever you need. From helping you negotiate and offer to making sure your application is submitted.

If you are remortgaging then they will simplify your mortgage application and make sure you get a great deal that is right for you. Arranging any other support you need like wills, insurance or solicitors.

Step 5 – Help to keep everything moving

Their service doesn’t stop there with extra help with chasing everybody to keep things moving along smoothly and you in the loop.

Step 6 – Move into your new home / Complete your remortgage

Get the keys to your new home or complete your remortgage with a great deal on your mortgage that you can afford.

Having had several conversations with my sons looking to purchase their first property in London, I felt concerned that as it had been some time since I had been directly involved with the house buying process, was I really equipped to give the right advice? Tom, CEO and founder of Move Engine, ... scheduled a call and they were both really impressed. Totally recommend his company to all parents of first time more

Frequently asked questions:

Your service sounds expensive, how much does it cost?

Our matching service and your initial call with a mortgage adviser is free.

We want to be clear however that our mortgage advisers all charge a fee typically payable on mortgage application, to provide you with their service should you choose to go ahead with them.

You may be surprised to find they compare quite favourably with other mortgage advisers, typically ranging from £300 – £500 per case. They also typically earn a commission from the lender which allows them to spend time providing this level of service to you.

All fees will be discussed up front, before you agree to use their service.

How quickly will I get a call?

We will try and contact you on the same day as your enquiry. Once we pass your details onto an adviser they will aim to get back to you within 24 hours but often it is much less than this. If your request is urgent then please let us know.

What times are calls available?

We understand that modern life can be busy. That’s why most of our advisers offer initial calls at a time to suit you. Whether that be during the day, evenings or even some weekends. They will try and work around you.

Do they have access to a wide range of mortgage deals?

We ensure all our advisers have access to a large number of lenders so that they can choose the right lender to match your circumstances. This is especially important if you want the best choice for you.

Will there be pressure to use them?

Absolutely not. The first chat is free and is there to help you understand your options, what you can afford and get you out there ready to buy. If after the first call you decide you don’t want the help from your adviser, then you are under no obligation to use them.

It sounds too good to be true, is it?

We are not promising your sale wont have it’s ups and downs. Buying property in the UK is challenging because there are so many parties involved. What we promise is that you will have an experienced adviser to call upon to help you through and that you will receive advice to avoid many of the problems and stresses in the first place.

How does Move Engine make money?

Move Engine works in partnership with a new type of mortgage adviser in the UK to bring you this service. We find and recommend only the best people for you to work with and always request your feedback on the service so that we can improve. Move Engine will receive a referral fee from the adviser should you use their service. This means we can continue to provide the Move Engine service to you for free. Our promise is that you will not be charged any more for the advisers service than if you went to them directly in the first place.

I have special circumstances, can they still help?

If you are self employed, have experienced bad credit in the past, ,have been rejected for a mortgage elsewhere or are using the help to buy schemes then we have a range of advisers who specialise in those areas. Just let us know when you make your enquiry.

How many advisers does Move Engine work with? Are places limited?

We purposely only work with a small number of advisers to ensure you get the best service. This does mean we can only help a limited number of first-time buyers at this time. Service is the most important aspect to us, so all our advisers will be given a limited number of people to help at any given time to ensure you receive the best service possible.

We want to be clear and upfront so here are our Terms and Conditions

The information in this page is intended for guidance and you should always seek professional one to one advice where possible. Move Engine does not provide financial advice and will introduce you to the best mortgage adviser we know to help you. There are no guarantees that buying a house will be easy, but we aim to make sure you are supported by an experienced adviser to give you the best chance of success.

*Move Engine will receive a referral fee for introducing you to one of our advisers. We guarantee that you will not be charged differently, had you gone to the mortgage adviser directly yourself.
