Hi! We're Mortgage321.
Simple, Smart, Flexible Mortgage Advice.
We believe mortgages should be simple, transparent, easy to understand and available to all.
That's why we'll find you the most suitable mortgage for your circumstances.
Even if you're credit history is less than perfect, we'll still be able to help you.
More than just a comparison site
We don’t just find you the lowest cost mortgage – we actually make sure you qualify for it. We also do all of the paperwork for you too.
What’s more, we'll work with you to find the lowest cost lawyer and liaise with your estate agent at no extra cost.
Better options than your bank
Your bank will only show you its own mortgages not the whole of market which might not be the lowest cost deal on the market or fully meet your individual needs.
We'll search the whole of market: 12,000+ mortgages from 90+ lenders, to find you the lowest cost mortgage available to you.
How we source your mortgage
By using the latest mortgage sourcing software we're able to ensure we find you the best mortgage product at the lowest cost.
We'll work with you online, so you can chat to us whenever it suits you. Your mortgage can be arranged from anywhere with a connection at a time you choose.
Access to over 12000+ mortgages.
At Mortgage321 we compare more than 12,000*^ mortgages, accessing almost every lender in the mortgage market, using the latest mortgage sourcing software.
Our recommendation is based on the true cost of borrowing over the initial introductory period of your new mortgage, including everything you will pay during that 2, 3, 5 or 10 years benefit period. True cost includes all fees and incentives, like cashback and free valuations from lenders, not just the monthly mortgage payments.
True cost is a great tool for comparing different types of mortgages because interest rates alone can not tell you which is the cheapest. For example, a mortgage might have a lower monthly repayment, but end up costing more in total over the initial introductory period because of associated fees charged.
When we compare different mortgage deals for you, we don’t stop at just the monthly repayments alone, we look deeper at the true cost to see which deal is the cheapest overall for you.
Why not find out which mortgage deal is the cheapest for you by contacting one of Mortgage321's mortgage experts.
We use the latest mortgage sourcing software to find you the best mortgage from whole of market.

Self-employed is part of our speciality.
Many self-employed professionals wrongly believe that they may struggle to get a mortgage because of the way they trade.
While it’s true that many mortgage lenders prefer customers to be in full-time employment, there are great deals for business owners, contractors and freelancers out there.
The most common problem for the self-employed applying for a mortgage is only having one year of accounts, or a low average income over the last few years. A big increase in your income can also prove problematic.
Mortgage321 has access to many lenders that will happily lend to the self-employed, Company directors or contractors.
Bad credit or just bad luck?
Your credit score can be harmed by a number of factors but there are some clear causes why you might have a bad credit rating and may have been declined a mortgage.

Large amount of credit outstanding
Mortgage321 has access to many lenders, offering a sympathetic view, even if the problem occurred within the last 3 months.
We will need to see your multi-agency credit file to gain an agreement with a lender, but that's a small price to pay to get the mortgage you want.
A remortgage could save you money.
Mortgage321 will make the process of remortgaging easy for you, whilst saving you money at a time that suits you - all you need is an internet connection.
If you’re coming to the end of your fixed or discounted rate mortgage deal, now may be the best time to remortgage to a better one.
This is especially true if you have had a fixed-rate mortgage, as if your interest rate is higher than what the market is currently offering you may obtain a lower cost product and save money. You could also free up any equity in your home.
It's time to find a better deal
Do I need life assurance for my mortgage?
When you die, your mortgage doesn’t go away. If you have a partner, children, or elderly parents who rely on you, getting life assurance means they’ll be able to pay off your mortgage if you’re not around.

How much do you charge for your service?
Our fee structure is based on three decisions; the loan amount, the complexity of your borrowing needs and whether we are arranging the mortgage for you, or providing an advice-only service.
We do not charge a fee unless your decide to go ahead with our advice.
We will charge a fee of 0.5% of the loan for residential mortgage advice.
Where cases are complex or involve a restricted access to credit, we estimate that the fee will be 1% of the loan.
In all cases £200.00 of the total fee will be payable at the time of application to the lender, with the balance payable ONLY when you receive your formal offer of mortgage from the recommended lender.
For example on a mortgage of £100,000 the total fee would be £500. This fee generally applies to standard mortgages.
"Keeping mortgages simple can never be understated. Communication for the client with their adviser should be easy, using email, telephone, text, WhatsApp messaging, video calling or plain old fashioned post.
