What does a mortgage adviser do?

Why a
mortgage adviser?

Securing the right mortgage can be a challenging task. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or looking to switch lenders, it’s crucial to understand how much you can borrow and what savings you can achieve through a mortgage transfer. This is where a mortgage adviser comes in.

A mortgage adviser can provide valuable guidance on the best mortgage options and providers that match your unique financial circumstances and requirements. By leveraging their expertise and industry knowledge, a mortgage adviser can help you find the most suitable mortgage solution for your needs.

Mortgage advisor

No, a mortgage broker is not compulsory when you are buying a house. Nevertheless, a mortgage consultant is very important in finding a suitable mortgage. An independent mortgage consultant will compare different mortgage lenders and mortgages for you.

Taking out a mortgage without mortgage advice is also possible; this is often called an execution only. You then only pay the distribution costs for taking out the mortgage. Read a whole article on all the reasons why you need a mortgage advisor here.

mortgage advisers

HuisAssist compares several mortgage advisers for free and without obligation. These mortgage advisors do not have contracts with mortgage lenders. This allows them to compare different mortgages from different mortgage lenders. This allows them to see which mortgage from which mortgage provider suits you best.

The cost of a
mortgage adviser

When it comes to the cost of a mortgage adviser, it’s important to note that there can be a significant variation. In addition to the advisory fee, distribution costs may also be added. If you choose to request advice directly from a mortgage lender, you may only be required to pay the advisory fee. However, if you want to compare rates and services from multiple mortgage lenders, an independent mortgage adviser may be necessary.

It’s worth noting that if you’re wondering whether you need to have your own money to take out a mortgage, the answer is not necessarily straightforward. The cost of a mortgage can vary depending on a number of factors, including the size of the down payment you can afford to make, your credit score, and the type of mortgage you’re interested in.

One important thing to keep in mind is that you won’t be charged VAT on the costs of mortgage advice, even if you ultimately decide not to take out a mortgage. However, if you seek advice without any intention of purchasing a home, you may be required to pay 21% VAT on the advisory fees.

A mortgage advisor helps in finding the right mortgage for your situation. The mortgage consultant has knowledge of the current market and has insight into how the market will look in the future. This way, you can be sure that you are making the best mortgage choice. The mortgage consultant will calculate your maximum mortgage and which mortgage lender has the most favourable interest rates and conditions. This way, you’ll be best off in the long run.

A mortgage adviser is legally obliged to comply with the WFT. This is the  Dutch ‘Financial Supervision Act’. This is monitored by the Financial Markets Authority (AFM). This ensures that the mortgage adviser has the right papers to be able to carry out the work.

The costs of the mortgage advice are deductible from the income tax as far as they are related to the mortgage itself. Advice costs for insurances with the mortgage are unfortunately not deductible.
