Buying your first home is daunting enough. Throw in a mortgage coupled with a history of bad credit and it can get overwhelming. Don't let that stop you from realising your dream of home ownership and give Lawrie Mortgages a call . We understand what it is like to enter this arena for the first time and will guide you every step of the way.

If you haven't already, we will help with getting your credit file. We will explain how the entries on your file may affect your mortgage application. Once we have assessed your credit file we will ask for more information to enable your mortgage adviser to research the whole mortgage market to find you the most suitable mortgage for your circumstances.

Your mortgage adviser will go through his recommended mortgage product so you understand every aspect of it. Once you are happy with the explanation and agreed to move forward your mortgage adviser will perform a fee free lender agreement in principle.
