A series of free buyer clinics launches in Scotland this weekend, hosted by leading independent financial advisors, Mortgage First.

  • By

  • Starting on Saturday, with open days in Wishaw and Stirling, the free drop-in sessions aim to help house hunters find an affordable moving solution.

    Each event will provide a one-stop-shop of impartial advice and information. It will review all the options available, including house builder purchase plans and the Government-backed MI New Home mortgage scheme, and comparing the lenders to identify the best mortgage deal for each individual.

    The first clinic will take place on April 27 and 28 at Stewart Milne Homes' development, Morningside Gardens in Wishaw, and its Wallace Gardens development in Stirling. Further open days are set for Newton Mearns, Bonnyrigg, Stewarton, Bargeddie and Inverkip.

    Ralph Colquhoun, senior mortgage advisor at Mortgage First, said: "It's a good time for buyers just now. Lenders are offering more choice of mortgage finance and the MI New Home scheme is increasing availability of 95 per cent mortgages. There is also a good range of support available from house builders, from reducing deposit requirements to help selling an existing property.

    "This increased choice, however, can appear daunting. These mortgage clinics are designed to provide homebuyers with all the information they need, in one place, and enable them to identify the best options quickly and easily so they can put their moving plans into action."
