Mortgage & Protection

We know that mortgages can be complicated enough at the best of times. This is why we’ve made our fees as simple as possible for our clients.

Our charge for mortgage services is £300, payable when you apply for the mortgage.

Our fees

Example based on a £125,000 mortgage application
Description
Commission from lender (based on 0.35% of mortgage balance)
Standard Advice Fee (charged directly to you)
TOTAL Fee (commission + standard advice fee)
Value
£400
£300
£700

We may receive commission from the mortgage lender, which will be disclosed on the Key Facts Illustration (KFI) or European Standardised Information Sheet (ESIS) you will receive in relation to your recommended mortgage. If the sum of the commission from the lender + advice fee amounts to £650 or more, no additional fees will be charged to you. However, if the sum of these figures amounts to less than £700, we will charge a higher advice fee to make up the difference. For example, if the commission from the lender came to £250, we would charge an advice fee of £400, payable directly by you. Please see the table for an example of our charges.

If the sum of the commission from the lender + advice fee amounts to more than £1,200, we will reduce our fee by the surplus. For example, if the commission from the lender came to £1,300, we would charge an advice fee of £200. If the commission from the lender alone is £1,500 or more, we will waive our advice fee completely.

Me and my partner first started looking into buying our first home just under a year ago and used Will Sharpe of A&O for our mortgage needs. Will at every point of contact over the year responded like we were his main concern even if we hadn't spoken for a couple of months, he explained everything in great detail and we never felt we couldn't ask a question no matter how small or potentially obvious. He responds very quickly and made sure we always had the information we needed. Overall we would 100 percent recommend him. We will definitely be using Annetts and Orchard again in the future.

It’s been a while since we bought our first home, and the process itself was rather long and complicated, so for about a year I’ve been meaning to review A&O and especially Will Sharpe – it’s not easy to express how very very grateful we are for all the truly fantastic support and advice we received! Nothing ever seemed too much trouble, despite the changes and delays, and always a pleasure to talk to. We can’t wait to return when it’s time to remortgage our house. P. S. Sincerest thanks for our Christmas card that’s just another little proof of your absolutely amazing and personal - overall exemplary - service! ❤️🏠🤩✨

Have been using A&O for over 10 years, and my family has used them for even longer - all staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and really care for their clients. Could not rate or recommend them higher!!

Will Sharpe gave us excellent advice following a comprehensive phone call and online review of our requirements. His response time was most impressive - not sure when he sleeps and, when there were a couple of bumps in the road, he pro-actively addressed and resolved them. Overall, 5 star service and, in addition, a thoroughly pleasant person to communicate with. Martin

Annetts & Orchard provide the exact reason you want to go with a local company for your insurance needs - truly personal service. It's been a long time since I've seen anything like the duty of care provided by a company for no other reason other than being the decent thing to do. Will be considering them for all my insurance and financial planning needs going forward.

Will was the absolute star of the show throughout our buying process. Our purchase wasn't the most straight forward, and at times we really wanted to shy away from it, but talking to and working with Will was consistently a pleasure and a joy. His advice was excellent, and we particularly appreciated how flexible he was with our sometimes changing requests (!) and how responsive he was too. We look forward to using Will and Annetts and Orchard again for our next property purchase, and have already recommended them to friends.

This was the best money a young First Time Buyer couple could spend! After being messed around with our mortgage, our Mortgage Advisor Will, swiftly took everything off of our plate and handled it all. He was empathetic to our situation and always available to answer any questions, getting us a great deal. Pretty sure he got us the quickest mortgage offer in history! 100% would recommend to anybody looking to buy a house. We will certainly be coming back at time of remortgage.
