Taking out a mortgage

Even for residential buyers, filling out a mortgage application can be stressful. But it doesn’t need to be. There’s important information you should know to ensure you’re making the right financial decision.

We work with all property buyers, including first-time buyers, those remortgaging, home movers and returning buyers. One of the important pieces of information to know is you could be entitled to stamp duty relief to help offset some of the costs. Determining who qualifies as a first-time buyer is not as easy as it might seem, so our independent brokers in Cambridge can help you figure out if you’re eligible.

Some buyers might think it’s best to go straight to a mortgage lender when they’re ready to purchase a new property. But going through a brokerage firm gives you certain advantages. Mortgage brokers serve as the middleman between buyers and lenders.

We have access to approximately 100 lenders and thousands of different mortgage schemes from which we are able to access the most competitive mortgage products. We take into consideration such factors as arrangement fees, valuation/survey fees, interest rates and other incentives like free legal services and cashback options.

Expert mortgage advice

We don’t just help you find the right mortgage provider; we offer expert advice to help you navigate the market and find the perfect mortgage deal for your situation.

If you’re interested in purchasing a property specifically to let it out to tenants, you will need to apply for a buy-to-let mortgage, which is different from a standard residential mortgage. Not everyone qualifies for buy-to-let mortgages, so you should contact our mortgage advisers so we can determine if you’re eligible.

Many people run into financial difficulty that makes it hard for them to take out a mortgage. Our Cambridge mortgage advisors have access to the entire market, so when you work with us, you can feel confident you will find a lender willing to offer you the perfect mortgage rate depending upon your circumstances.


When you remortgage a property, you’re using the proceeds you receive from a new mortgage deal with a different lender to pay off your first mortgage, using the same property as collateral. Frequently, there is an assumption that remortgaging involves moving homes or taking out a second mortgage, but that isn’t usually the case. The main difference when you remortgage, is you’re changing lenders.

Remortgaging can be beneficial for many property owners. Some choose to do so to reduce their monthly mortgage rates, while others do it to raise capital for other projects, perhaps to start a business. But remortgaging isn’t right for everyone. Fees can be high when you switch your mortgage lender, so it’s important to seek the right financial advice to ensure that remortgaging makes sense for you.

Relationships drive us forward

One of the greatest advantages to working with The Mortgage Bureau is that we prioritise our long-term relationships with buyers, so we’re committed to finding you the right mortgage throughout your time working with us. We periodically review your mortgage to assess whether we can work to adjust the terms to make sure it’s the right fit for your needs.

When it’s time to review your mortgage, we will search the entire market of lenders to see if there are better deals out there for you. If we find one, and you agree that it works for you, we’ll help you make the transition.

    Cambridge is a beautiful city in East Anglia. Cambridge lies on the River Cam, a tributary of the Ouse. It is the county town of Cambridgeshire. Nearby Towns and Cities include Ely, Huntingdon, Newmarket, Bedford, Peterborough, St Ives and St Neots.

    Cambridge is home to the world-renowned University of Cambridge, was founded in 1209. The buildings of the university include King’s College Chapel, Cavendish Laboratory, and the Cambridge University Library, one of the largest legal deposit libraries in the world. The city’s skyline is dominated by several college buildings, along with the spire of the Our Lady and the English Martyrs Church, the chimney of Addenbrooke’s Hospital and St John’s College Chapel tower. Anglia Ruskin University, which evolved from the Cambridge School of Art and the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology, also has its main campus in the city.

    The City is at the heart of the high-technology Silicon Fen with industries such as software and bioscience and many start-up companies born out of the university. More than 40% of the workforce has a higher education qualification, more than twice the national average. The Cambridge Biomedical Campus, one of the largest biomedical research clusters in the world, is soon to house premises of AstraZeneca, a hotel and the relocated Papworth Hospital.

    The Backs is a picturesque area to the east of Queen’s Road where several colleges of the University of Cambridge back on to the River Cam, their grounds covering both banks of the river. The name “the Backs” refers to the backs of the colleges. The area consists of the rear grounds of the following colleges (north to south): St John’s with buildings on both sides of the river, spanned by the St John’s kitchen bridge and the famous Bridge of Sighs, Trinity College, Clare College, King’s College and Queens’ with buildings on both sides of the river, spanned by the Mathematical Bridge.

    Historically, much of the land was used by the colleges for grazing livestock or growing fruit. Cattle can still be found grazing behind King’s College. The river was also an important commercial thoroughfare to the mill at Silver Street.

    The favoured form of transport in the city is the bicycle and many of the outlying villages such as Granchester (home of Rupert Brooke the WW1 poet), Coton, Madingley, Girton, Trumpington, Fen Ditton, Barton, Comberton and Cherry Hinton are all within easy cycling distance of the City Centre. The village of Cottenham is famous for its racecourse which lies directly to the east of the village at Mason’s Pasture.
