    Posted on: Thursday 8th December, 2016 and filed in: Mortgage News

    Most of us would like to keep the term (length) of our mortgage as short as possible – no-one wants to think of paying a debt up until our old age. Financially it makes good sense to keep the mortgage term as short as possible – the sooner the mortgage is paid off the less […]

  • As borrowing drops in July, is this the start of Brexit blues?

    Posted on: Wednesday 6th July, 2016 and filed in: Mortgage News

    So, it’s over. Whether you agree with the result or not, we’ve all got to come to terms with Brexit.
