More Information


The mortgage itself is the document that the bank uses to take security over your property. So when applying for a ’mortgage’, as most of us say, you’re not actually applying for a mortgage, you’re applying for a home loan.

When you apply to the bank for your home loan and the bank says yes, you can have one they give you the loan but also take out a mortgage over your home. Which means in the event that you cannot make repayments on your loan the bank has the opportunity to sell the house to recoup costs.

Hence the term ‘free hold’, people often use this term when they have finished paying off their home loan. The bank no longer has a mortgage over the property, therefore they own the house free of the hold of the bank’s mortgage.


I am bound by and support the duties set out in the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013.


Generally I won’t charge you any fees for the financial advice I provide to you. This is possible because, on settlement of a loan, I usually receive commission from the lender. Any exceptions to this general position are outlined in my Disclosure Statement and Terms of Engagement.
