What do you think is the most important thing to consider before you get a mortgage?

A broker is often underrated. A lot of people feel it’s expensive but I think it’s good to have an expert involved who’s day-to-day job is just that and are regulated.

What are your thoughts on online mortgage brokers like Habito/ Trussle who offer "fee- free mortgage advice?

They are great to shake up the market. A friend had a great experience with it so I will try Habito soon.

That’s good to know - I think i’ll probably go with one of these two when it comes round to it :raised_hands:

I was looking at more traditional brokers like L&C but I’m definitely drawn in by the more online/ visual appeal of these two companies!
