I made my appointment with their friendly receptionist and turned up at their smart offices in Cambridge. Andrew met me and ran through all the compliance issues before undertaking a full fact find. He then provided me with really good advice from across the whole market, rather than being restricted like my previous mortgage was. I ended up making quite a big saving and can't thank The Mortgage Bureau enough.

Andrew and his team were really great at getting us a mortgage. The rates were much more competitive than our bank offered and was actually offered to us much faster than the banks quoted date. Highly recommend and would definitely use again.
