MORTGAGES NEWS
Supporting the
next generation of
mortgage experts
Director of Mortgages and Finance for Bradley
Hall, Lewis Chambers, covers why it’s important
for experienced brokers to develop the skills of
the next generation of mortgage advisors.
In the current market there are an
excessive number of lenders, an
abundance of mortgage deals and
ultimately what seems like an endless
number of hoops for applicants to jump
through to get the best deal – in all
honesty, the market is a mineeld.
Factors that need to be considered
include the initial interest rate, any
introductory oers, the rate beyond the
xed period and potential product fees. It
is easy to use a price comparison table to
nd the cheapest current rate on the
market, you may apply for a particularly
attractive looking deal without realising
that there are specic criteria that you do
not actually meet.

It’s not surprising that many buyers,
whether they are purchasing their rst
home or moving, rely on mortgage
advisors to handle the process - ultimately
saving them both time and money.
The overall aim to meet current
demand for housing, as outlined by the
Government in ocial documents, is to
build tens of thousands of new homes
every year; which means that the vast
majority of these new homeowners will
require mortgages.
As a mortgage is the biggest nancial
commitment you will likely ever make, it
is imperative to ensure that you are
getting the mortgage advice which is
exactly right for your personal
circumstances, from an expert.
In line with demand for mortgages
growing, so is the need for trusted and
committed new mortgage brokers. We
have certainly experienced this
requirement and have developed our
commitment to supporting the next
generation of mortgage experts.
Since the launch of our specialist
mortgage team in 2016 the team has
grown signicantly, and we have been
able to supply hundreds of people with
mortgages on a national scale. We are
dedicated to training the next generation
of mortgage experts in order to continue
providing an unrivalled service to more
and more clients across the North East
and further aeld.
We understand the importance of
investing our time and in training for the
team. This not only provides personal and
professional development for the
individual, but also helps us to provide a
best in class service.
Most recently, we welcomed
Mortgage and Protection Consultant,
Carney Frater, who gained her Level 3
CeMAP. We are also investing in
continued development and training for
our advisors and case handlers to ensure
our entire team is educated to the highest
standard.
