A simple chat to get you on the right path to success

If you are just starting out on your first time buying journey or even if you are close to making an offer then this chat is for you. Many first time buyers have worries and questions when they first start the process.

Often it is hard to know who to talk to and who to trust. There are many new things to learn and lots of complex terms. So often the simplest thing to do is to ask, but then the question is who do you ask? That’s why we want to help you, by offering this free first steps call, so that you can move forwards with confidence.

Read our FAQs for answers to your common questions about this service

How long will the call last?

Calls can last between 20-30 minutes. It all depends on how many questions you have and what you want to discuss. Simply tell us at the start of you call what time you can spare and we will tailor it to suit you.

What times of the day are calls available?

When you request a call we will arrange them where ever possible at a time to suit you. This could be during the day, evenings or at weekends. Often it is best to choose a time when you can dedicate quiet time to the call so that you can make notes and take everything in. Call availability is on a first come first serve basis so the sooner you request it the more likely we are to have availability still.

Will I be sold anything?

No, absolutely not. This call is all about getting to know you and helping you understand your next steps. If you want our help then of course we can offer it but this is not the purpose of the call.

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 in the first place.

Does Move Engine provide financial advice?

No, Move Engine is not able to give you financial advice. We can explain how things work and how to get help but we are not a mortgage adviser. If you are looking to just chat about your finances, then still get in touch and let us know and we will recommend a mortgage adviser based on your specific circumstances. Not all mortgage advisers are the same, so it is important to choose the right one for you.

Meet Tom Leach who will be chatting with you on your call

Hi, my name is Tom and I’ve worked in the property industry for over 15 years and bought and sold several houses. I have worked helping estate agents for many years and later at Zoopla, but I felt something was missing. It was both my personal experiences buying and the lack of support in the industry for first-time buyers that led me to start Move Engine. Having gone into the buying process with such high expectations, I was disappointed with the lack of help available.

So Move Engine was created and I went out and started talking with people from every side of the industry about their experiences. I wanted to learn from each side what was going on so that I could better help people like you navigate the process. And I wanted to create a place where people could learn and reach out to someone who genuinely has their best interests at heart. If you are struggling to get started or have some questions holding you back, then let’s chat it through together so that you can move forwards. There are no silly questions when it comes to buying your first house.

After searching the web for any assistance as a first time buyer I found all of Tom’s knowledge really useful and his advice is fantastic for someone looking for their first step on the property ladder. There wasn’t any questions he couldn’t answer, definitely recommend!!

I contacted move-engine to answer the 700 questions I had about buying a house. I had just initiated the process of looking for my first property and was finding more questions based on every conversation I hadIn a half hour call with move-engine the majority of these were answered and the next... steps I should take in a logical house buying process were identified. The advisor was extremely knowledgable and clear in explaining the various aspects from everything related to mortgages, buy to let and property tax.I would absolutely recommend move engine to anyoneread more

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
