I've just completed on a couple of flats and have my mortgages with Birmingham Midshires. With these guys I'm allowed to remortgage to release equity a month after completion.
Had a chat with my mortgage advisor yesterday and he was more than helpful but I had to prompt him to get him to tell me that their fee would be £500 for each property.
Speaking to Birmingham Mishires this morning I don't need to use a broker. Not only that but in the future I could go direct and also save the brokerage fee.
Food for thought!!
