Ask the mortgage experts
At John Charcol, we are constantly asked for advice by borrowers on what they should do when it comes to mortgages. As such, we created this section so that you can submit your questions to our experts. The answers are provided by a team of experts, led by our in house mortgage technical manager, Simon Collins, who has spent the last 10 years helping our consultants to place mortgage applications.
Please be aware that these answers can only be generic and no personal recommendations can be made.
