Welcome to our new website

We’ve been through a lot together. Thank you for staying with us. Imagine the hours we have spent working together to make your vision a reality. If we may have just two more minutes of your time, you will not regret the investment.

When we close out the year in December, we will look back and recognise that 2017 was a defining year for Easy Switch Mortgages. We celebrated our ten-year anniversary! Imagine that. We started in the recession and grew despite the obstacles.  Most recently we made changes to our senior level of Easyswitch Mortgages with Peter & Ian leading our vision and direction.

We needed the changes to ready ourselves for the times ahead. Following on from the recent rise in interest rates, further increases are a distinct possibility in the not too distant future. With the clock ticking, details of Brexit continue in their back-and-forth negotiations. Whilst maturing remortgages have grown to the value of £133.1bn in the second half of 2017, with an incredible £243bn due to mature during 2018*. So many variables and change pave a rocky path for property owners to navigate.

Given the world of uncertainty we face, our team plans to improve our client engagement with the purpose of inspiring confidence. We created a new website designed for that very purpose. Over time, and with your feedback, our website will provide solutions to the challenges we face—and the opportunities that come with them.

As a valued client, we want to add value to your experience while also easing your mortgage concerns. One way we can do that is to provide information about the mortgage industry and the factors influencing its success.  Our website is your website. If we don’t meet your need, it is no better than a business card you file away and forget. We’d value your feedback. Will you help us out?

  1. Have a look out our new website
  2. Subscribe to our newsletter. Beside a face-to-face or phone call, this will be the best way to stay informed.
  3. Send us some feedback. Let us know what you would like to know more about.

We make the following three promises to you:

  1. We won’t inundate you with loads of pointless posts.
  2. We will listen to you to make sure our content is relevant.
  3. We will work to ensure you have the information you need to make decisions about your mortgage.

In these days of Robo-Advisors, machine learning and market disrupters, we feel there is a still an important place for quality, personal mortgage and human-centred financial advice. As existing clients, you already know this from your experience. We promise to never lose sight of what makes us different.

How do I download my Bank Statements?

HOW TO DOWNLOAD MY BANK STATEMENTS


We must get asked this question at least a dozen times every week, so you are not alone! You will see below a fairly comprehensive list of Banks and Building Societies, with a brief explanation of what you need to do.

However, please be aware that banks are upgrading their IT systems all the time, so this is subject to change. If you see any errors please, please let us know so that we can update this post and help others.

Top tip!  Some bank accounts don’t give you the option to Save or Download the statement as a PDF. In this situation please try this:

  • If you use Chrome as your browser, once you have your statement on screen, press the Print button and then select “save to PDF”

Best Buy Tables

BEST BUY TABLES


Isn’t it frustrating when you see something that you really want, only to be told you can’t have it?

This is why we don’t offer ‘best buy’ tables or any form of interest rate comparison. Why? Quite simply mortgages are no longer a ‘one size fits all’ product. Lenders criteria and affordability calculations vary widely and we feel that publishing any form of best buy table just lures potential clients under false pretences . The idea of dangling the best mortgage rates in front of you and then snatching them away does not appeal to us, so we don’t and won’t do it.

If you would like to find out which mortgage products are right for your situation, requirements and profile, why not get in touch and speak to us.

Of course if you’d prefer to deal with a robot,………….
