Consult IFA when trying to find a mortgage, says expert

Bookmark and Share

With personal finance options becoming increasingly complex, those trying to find a mortgage are likely to benefit from seeking independent financial advice , according to most experts.

David Elms, the chief executive of the organisation promoting the benefits of such advice, IFA Promotion, says the run-up to the end of the tax year is a very popular time for people to consult independent financial advisers (IFAs).

He says those shopping around to find a mortgage � or any other financial product for that matter � would do well to seek help from an IFA.

The need for advice has legs since the public demand for independent advice is still there, Mr Elms comments.

IFA Promotion deals with 10,000 enquiries about financial advice every week, he claims.

This is one of our busiest periods with the self assessment tax returns at the end of January followed by the end of the financial year, the chief executive says.

Alexander Cowen Wright, public relations and communications manager at financial website MoneyExpert, says people who are trying to find a mortgage should shop around a lot more.

He also advises them to look further than their own banking provider for financial advice, as consumers are likely to get one type of advice at their provider.
