We can help most people get a mortgage (subject to status), including if you are in the following situations:
If you’re moving house and you already have a mortgage on your current home, you might be able to transfer – or ‘port’ – your mortgage to your new property.
Even if porting your mortgage is possible, you’ll still need to reapply and go through the same affordability and credit checks you went through to get the mortgage. You’ll also have to pay for a valuation, as well as legal fees and stamp duty.
Alternatively, you can arrange a new mortgage for your new home with a different lender.
If you need to increase the size of your loan to buy a more expensive property, you’ll also need to meet the lender’s borrowing criteria for that extra amount, which may be more rigorous than for your original loan.
Whether you decide to transfer your existing mortgage over to your new property, or you want a new mortgage altogether, you will need to go through the application process. It’s worth talking to a mortgage advisor before looking at potential houses to get a better idea of what kind of moving home mortgage you can take out.
For every type of mortgage, you will need to apply first, and the process will not be too different to when you applied for your first mortgage. Your provider will do a valuation on your new home and a surveyor may need to check the structural soundness of the property, which will both normally come with a fee. Your lender will also carry out a credit check on you where you will need to provide personal financial details.
With so many ‘moving home’ mortgage providers and different options out there, finding the right mortgage for you can be a complicated and time-consuming process. Thankfully, Friends Capital are here to help.

When you speak with us, we will take a ‘fact find’. At this stage we take basic details about your situation. We will then search the whole of the market and find you the best deal available.
If you are happy with the deal that we offer, we will then contact the lender for you and get you what is called a ‘decision in principal’.
If you’re happy with the decision in principal then we will secure this deal for you and deal with the application for you on your behalf.
