/ Mortgage advisor in Edinburgh?
It's time for the mortgage round again, and with three to do we'd like to shop around for a good advisor; recommendations please.

Just go to any broker. They all do exactly the same thing and use the same backoffice recommendation system.
Do not go direct with a retail bank.
Thanks for that, Rom. Sounds like we can be lazy and just stay with our present guy.
That's interesting. Why do you not like dealing directly with a bank?

It's not that I don't like, it's simply that they offer better deals through brokers than they do directly, supply because the competition on price is more intense through the brokers. That is where the big lenders compete on price for volume.
One thing to be aware of though with brokers, is that they tend to always push you for 2 years deals (that's better for them as they probably get your business again in two years time...). If that is fine with you, good, but if you think 5 years is best for you do not let them dissuade you. There are some really good 5 years deals to get through brokers right now.
Hi, I'd recommend Rory at the Mortgage Centre Partnership for one in Edinburgh. I've dealt with 2 or 3 over the years and I'd suggest he has been the best. For example, the others often never got back to me on things for ages unless I was hassling them every day.
Thanks for that, I'll be sure to look him up.
Also recommend Rory, has just done one for me very good, no fee.
Thanks for that, Jim.
