How Can an Independent Mortgage Adviser Help?
Your mortgage adviser will learn about your situation and explain your mortgage options before making a product recommendation. We’re a whole of market mortgage broker which means we’re not tied to any lenders; we look at products from across the entire market to find the best deal for you. Once you’re happy with your recommendation, we’ll pass you over to your client relationship manager who’ll manage the rest of the mortgage process for you.
Unlike other UK mortgage brokers, finding and arranging the best mortgage for your circumstances isn’t all John Charcol do. We help you through your entire property-buying journey. Our team can find you conveyancers, insurance and protection cover. We can also help you move into your new home and set up things like utilities and Council Tax.

It was amazing experience Mr Shaahid was extremely proactive to get me mortgage.Posted
Excellent from start to finish. We were in a bit of a unique situation to get a mortgage and Maz (Mufazzal Choudry)has been brilliant at every step. Communication has been clear and helpful and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough.Posted
We had excellent service from Samm Walker when arranging our life insurance recently. Samm was very friendly, helpful and patient with us whilst going through the whole process. Highly recommended! Thank you!Posted
Excellent service from start to finish. From initial consultation, to getting the offer finalised, Mufazzal Choudhury was great at guiding us through the process and taking the lead on sorting everything out. Would highly recommend Mufazzal/Maz and John Charcol as a mortgage broker. Maz was open to questions at most times of the day fitting us in around our busy schedules. He's been continuously diligent, continuing to provide us revised offers and reduced rates as lenders lower their products.Posted
As a self-employed expat looking for a buy-to-let mortgage, I needed a broker who could track down a competitive deal for niche borrower, and Charcol brokers Mark Brazier and Hollie Yeates did it. As well as finding me the perfect mortgage, they offered brilliant support throughout the process, and everything went very smoothly their end.Posted
We recently used John Charcol for the second time. This time our broker was Mark Brazier, who was brilliant throughout the whole process. He was really down to earth, which made it easy for me to discuss any concerns I had. He went through a few different options and we worked out what would best suit us. Emma Moores helped progress the purchase and was also fantastic, responding quickly to calls / emails and she couldn't do enough to help. I can't thank either of them enough. Would use again in the future without a doubt.Posted
