We pride ourselves on putting our customers first and delivering a service that people love, as evidenced by our 200+ 5-star reviews.

First-Time Buyer Mortgages

If you’re looking for a 5-star rated first-time-buyer mortgage broker in Bromley, Thameside Mortgages can help you through the process. With access to more than 90 lenders, we can source the most suitable products to attain the right mortgage deal for you. We understand that getting on the property ladder is exciting but obtaining your first mortgage can be long-drawn out and a stressful experience.
Enter Thameside Mortgages. Our expert mortgage brokers have helped hundreds of first-time-buyers in Bromley to obtain their first mortgage and dream home. Once we have all the required information from you, we’ll submit an initial application for you to gain an Agreement in Principle (AIP).
Once we have your Agreement in Principle, we can then proceed to submitting a formal mortgage application to the mortgage lender. It all starts with an initial chat with our team so we can understand your requirements and get you on the road to buying your first property in your chosen location.

Remortgages

Are you coming to the end of your current mortgage deal? This is a great opportunity to review alternate mortgage deals and rates to identify further opportunities to suit your needs, circumstances and preferences.
It’s advisable to start looking into a remortgage approximately 6 months before your current deal comes to an end. This gives you plenty of time to explore the market and achieve better rates. Whether you’re looking to free up more capital to enjoy life or make further home improvements, you may benefit from a remortgage.
There are plenty of options to consider. We may be able to get you a better deal with your current lender or decide to go elsewhere to an alternate lender. Fortunately, Thameside Mortgages have a plethora of connections to over 90 lenders.
Fixed-rate and variable-rate remortgages are your two main options to consider. Fixed-rate mortgages may be the best option for you if you’re seeking consistency in your outgoings on a monthly basis. Get in touch with us today and we’ll be delighted to help you with your remortgage.

Home Mover Mortgages

Thameside Mortgages can also help with home mover mortgages in Bromley and the South East of England. Home mover mortgages can usually involve porting (moving) your mortgage to a new property.
If you’re moving to a new property that is considerably higher in value, this type of mortgage can come into play. With the help of our professional and accredited mortgage brokers, the process of your home mover mortgage is simplified. We deal with everything from submitting your application, obtaining an Agreement in Principle (AIP), communicating with estate agents, solicitors, and finding you the right deal.

Buy to Let Mortgages

Buy-to-let mortgages, also known as investment mortgages, are popular for landlords looking to invest in property and potentially benefit from additional income. Generally speaking you would require a 25% deposit to obtain a buy to let (BTL) mortgage although there are some lenders who can consider less, for the right client/situation.
BTL mortgages are calculated in one or two ways. Firstly, they may be calculated by assessing the amount of rent the property is likely to generate on a monthly basis. The other way BTL mortgages may be calculated is by stress testing to analyse how much a landlord can afford to borrow.
Whether you are looking to acquire a BTL mortgage for the first time or further expand your portfolio, we are here to help.

A mortgage is a loan secured against your home or property. Your home or property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or any other loan secured on it. The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate most forms of buy to let mortgage.

Not only do I feel that I ended up with a very competitive mortgage, from start to finish the team kept me up to date on the progress of my mortgage application and the conveyancing process.

    This is the second time I've instructed Andrew Sheen at Thameside Mortgages to find and secure the right deal for me. On both occasions I've had complete confidence in his ability to work with my best interests at heart. So professional and personable, I hope to always work with him when moving house or remortgaging. Not to mention, he's also a really top bloke. Thank you Andrew and team. Let's do it all again in 5 years time.

    I am so glad that we worked with Thameside Mortgages for the purchasing of our first home. From initial enquiries, guidance whist making an offer on the house, to getting a mortgage offer & insurance options, we cannot fault their service! Jason always made us feel informed, in control and aware of all our options. 10/10 and we would definitely recommend to our friends and family! Thameside eliminated all the fears & stress we thought we would have, and made the experience easy and clear. Thank you very much!

    Sainimili Kata Avatar Sainimili Kata

    Andrew & Laura were amazing at Thameside Mortgages. They were able to secure us a mortgage after we purchased the property, so only a few lenders were available to us. We were happy with the mortgage they recommended. The conveyancer wasn't the best, but Andrew & Laura pushed that side too. This is the second mortgage I've got through Thameside Mortgages and I will definitely use them again! Can't recommend them enough. Fantastic service, always available and happy to help. Thanks guys 🙂

    Kerry Briggs Avatar Kerry Briggs

    We brought our first home nearly 2 years ago, we had Jason Harris as our advisor. I can’t put into words how much he helped from the very first call to present day with our remortgage and life insurance. Jason has been incredible from the get go, it felt as though we didn’t have to do anything really, as he found everything for us and gave multiple options so all we did was say yes or no. He broke everything down and explained things in such a simple way for us to not get too overwhelmed. He made everything feel stress free and simple, as well as finding us an incredible offer twice he has also found cheaper life insurance policies for us which is something I didn’t even think to do, he has saved us £100’s of pounds overall with our new offers. Really appreciate having him as our advisor and he’s a really helpful and lovely guy. Thank you Thameside & Thank you Jason.

    Introduced to Mr Sheen in 2016 and using his services for me and my family since then. When I was looking for the second mortgage, I was unable to find him at his earlier employers, as he had meanwhile started Thameside Mortgages. I spent two days on internet, found him and contacted. I appreciate 7 respect his services, integrity & professionalism.

    I had heard great things about Thameside Mortgages before we used them to buy our new home, and they certainly did not disappoint! Andrew and his team were friendly, thorough and efficient from start to finish, which made what initially felt like a daunting process completely stress free. The team went above and beyond on multiple occasions, including to resolve a couple of unforeseen issues that we encountered with our mortgage application, proving that we couldn’t have done it without them! I will definitely be using them again for any future house purchase / remortgage.

  • Andrew and Laura provided an exceptional service and my partner and I are extremely grateful for their services. They were both on hand to answer any questions or queries without hesitation and provided clear, concise and accurate information. As first time buyers and with one of us being self employed, it proved extremely difficult for us to get a mortgage (especially in a pandemic), however Laura and Andrew both went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after and for that we are extremely thankful.

    Hazel McCarthy Avatar Hazel McCarthy

    The team went above and beyond to help us secure the best possible rate. During what was a difficult time for us, they’ve been so supportive and empathic. Their work is delivered with pedagogy and transparency, for customers to understand relevant details and take informed decisions with confidence. I strongly recommend their mortgage services.

    Mikhaël Mazu Avatar Mikhaël Mazu

    After the purchase of our property we were in search of a good mortgage broker and our estate agent recommended Andrew. After speaking to Andrew we were confident we had found the right person to entrust finding us something as important as our first mortgage. We provided Andrew with all the necessary details and with his extensive experience and knowledge in this field, he was able to find us a very good mortgage deal. It was a pleasure working with Andrew and he was there to help and support us from the initial stages of the mortgage to the final completion day. When we needed to remortgage, Andrew helped us find another good deal, providing the same care and support as before. I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone who is looking for an experienced and professional yet very approachable and friendly expert broker who will help guide them through the whole mortgage process. Thank you so much Andrew and Lydia for all your help recently.

How long does it take to process a mortgage application?

The timeline for processing a mortgage application can vary based on various factors, including the nature of your application, the type of mortgage product sought, and the efficiency of the lender’s procedures. Here’s a general overview of the mortgage application process:

  • Initial application: We’ll already have the majority of the information required to complete your application, meaning we’ll complete the application for you, saving yourselves hours of talking with representative at the bank for hours, or making an appointment in a branch in the town next to you. We will alleviate much of the stress because we handle the application process on your behalf and make sure it’s completed correctly. 
  • Documentation: You’ll need to provide supporting documents, such as proof of income, bank statements, and identification, but we’ll provide everything to the lender in the format they need it in. The duration for this step can range depending on how quickly you gather and submit the required documents. 
  • Valuation: The lender will conduct a property valuation to ensure its value aligns with the loan amount. The duration for this step varies based on the type of valuation conducted and typically takes a few days to a week.
  • Underwriting: The underwriting process involves evaluating your application to determine if you meet the lender’s approval criteria. This step’s duration ranges from a 3-5 working days, depending on the application’s complexity and the workload of the underwriting team.
  • Offer: If your application is approved, the lender will issue a mortgage offer, which can take a few days, depending on the lender’s internal processes.

How much deposit do I need for a mortgage?

The deposit required for first-time buyers is determined by various factors, including the property price and mortgage eligibility. Typically, most mortgage lenders will expect a minimum deposit of 5% of the purchase price. However, if you have the means to provide a larger deposit, you may gain access to more competitive mortgage rates and a broader range of mortgage options.

As a reference, a house price of £255,000 would require a 5% deposit of £12,750. It’s essential to note that house prices can vary significantly based on the location.

Government schemes, such as Shared Ownership, are available to assist first-time buyers in entering the property market. These schemes may require a smaller deposit compared to a standard mortgage, but they have their own eligibility criteria and terms and conditions to consider.

When should I contact a mortgage broker in Bromley?

You can contact our mortgage brokers in Bromley –  at any time during your home buying journey. Many people choose to speak with us before they start looking for a property, as this can help them understand what they can afford and give them a good idea of what their mortgage options are.

Our mortgage brokers can provide you with valuable advice and support throughout the entire mortgage process, from helping you choose the right mortgage product to submitting your application and guiding you through the legal process.

What is a fixed-rate mortgage?

A fixed-rate mortgage is a type of mortgage where the interest rate remains the same for the entire term of the loan, usually between 10-30 years. This means that the borrower’s monthly mortgage payment remains constant, providing stability and predictability in budgeting for the mortgage payment over time. The fixed interest rate is set at the beginning of the loan and does not change, even if interest rates rise or fall during the loan term. Fixed-rate mortgages are a popular choice for homebuyers who want to have a predictable mortgage payment and protect against potential interest rate increases.
