How can we help you with mortgages today?
We've partnered with London & Country (L&C) to help you compare rates and deals from across the whole UK market.
L&C is the largest no-fee broker in the UK and has won awards for its outstanding and independent advice. That means you can be confident you'll get the right product.
Use the site to compare thousands of mortgage deals, including exclusives you can't get anywhere else.
If you click through, you can try our mortgage calculators to help you find out how much you'll be able to borrow, and what the total cost of the loan will be.
Our easy-to-understand comparison table offers you the option of looking at fixed rate, variable rate or buy-to-let mortgages and will show you the key components of each deal.
These include the mortgage rate, how long any introductory rate lasts, the maximum loan to value (LTV), arrangement fees, whether there are any early repayment charges and if there are any additional benefits.
If you're still not clear you can speak to one of L&C's expert advisers by requesting a call back, or by phoning 0800 073 1959.
Should you be happy to proceed with your enquiry online, a simple form will ask for your basic contact information and for you to select a convenient time to take a call from L&C.
