Who is this mortgage guide for?

  • First time buyers – Those who don’t own property and are looking to buy one.
  • Self Employed individuals – After the introduction of the National Credit Act on the 1st June 2007 it has become far more important for self employed individuals to speak to an independent mortgage broker in order to maximise your chances of a successful application.
  • Poor credit history – Previously those with poor credit history were simply shut out of the mortgage market. Given the recent credit crisis Bond Busters has helped a number if client navigate the road to recovery from bad credit with specialist non-lending debt solutions.
