Our Mortgage and Protection advisors

Meet our 5-star mortgage advisor in derby!

Award-Winning Excellence, National Recognition and Finalist Honours

Peak Mortgages and Protection advisors have now won 3 Awards for being the “Derbyshire Mortgage Advisors of the Year” as well as a commendation for our customer service.

Peak Mortgages and Protection have also been finalists for 17 National Awards for being great when it comes to advising and helping people with mortgages and protection.

By the way, in plain English by protection, we really mean life, critical illness and income protection insurance.

That’s what you get from us. A real focus on delivering a service for all of our clients as we help them with buying their home, keeping their home, and protecting their families.

Peak Mortgages and Protection advisors are based in and around Derbyshire. That means you can pop into “Peak Towers” just outside Belper where there is complimentary beer, wine, and the more usual hot drinks. If you’re lucky you may even get to play with one of the many office dogs.

You can also speak to a local adviser over video too who knows your market and some of Peak Mortgages and Protection advisers do also offer home visits.

We look forward to speaking to you soon.

Frequently asked question

Have A Question?

What do mortgage advisors do?

They act as the middleman between the lender (banks and building societies) and the borrower (you). We act in the interests of the borrower and not the lender while offering the widest possible consumer protection. In the past, you might have been able to speak to your bank manager about getting a mortgage, but this is less common nowadays. Additionally, unlike banks, our mortgage protection advisors provide advice from products across more than one lender, offering a much wider choice. As qualified mortgage specialists, it’s our responsibility to search an extensive panel of lenders to find you the right product for your circumstances. Choosing to take on a mortgage is one of life’s big decisions and we are the authoritative experts on the subject; let our advisers in Derbyshire help you to make the right choice.

Are comparison sites just as good as using a mortgage advisor?

No. While comparison sites may be useful for conducting some initial self-research, they aren’t nearly as sophisticated as the specialist mortgage search tools designed and used by our advisors. As leading mortgage advisors here in Derbyshire we have access to exclusive deals that are not generally available to the public directly. Unlike arranging your car insurance, finding the right mortgage deal requires thorough expertise and detailed knowledge of the financial markets and of each lender’s specific underwriting criteria. Small differences in rates can result in huge differences in repayments, so there are substantial consequences if you get even a small detail wrong. Above all else is the personal service that our mortgage advice offers. There is a lot of complex paperwork involved in the mortgage process that we will expertly complete for you. This is something that cannot be done via a comparison site.

Will you take my individual circumstances into account?

Yes. Before showing you the products available, our mortgage advisors will take time to understand your individual circumstances. This helps us to find a deal that works for you and your family. We’ll assess what you can realistically afford and offer advice accordingly. If we aren’t confident that you could comfortably afford repayments for the duration of the mortgage, we won’t recommend that product. In order to give tailored, comprehensive advice on mortgage products directly suited to your individual circumstances, we will look to understand your situation and needs. With this information, the challenge of choosing the right mortgage becomes a little bit easier. We’ll start the process with an extensive conversation with you to establish what you are borrowing for, what your budget is, and any individual circumstances that may affect your ability to borrow. Keep in mind that the more information we have, the more we can personalise the deal for you!

When is the right time to contact a mortgage advisor?

Involving a mortgage advisor early on in the application process maximises our opportunities to help you, and allows you to reduce the risk of frustration, disappointment, and rejection while searching for a mortgage. In short, the earlier you contact one, the better! Because our advisors help you to understand what you can afford, the information we give will ultimately dictate the price range of properties you can look to buy. If you’ve already got your heart set on a new home before speaking to an advisor, there is every possibility that you may have overestimated what you can afford, rendering your choices unsuitable. This can be deeply demoralising and frustrating, not to mention a waste of your time. It’s not just your price range that we advise on. We’ll also offer a more comprehensive understanding of the other costs involved in the application process: things like mortgage account fees, arrangement fees, booking fees, legal fees, local authority fees, and more. Speaking to an advisor early in the process is recommended. Contact us today or at your next earliest convenience to speak to one of our mortgage advisors. With our head office in Belper, we are specialist mortgage advisers covering all areas in Derbyshire.
