Are you convinced you’ll never be able to afford a mortgage? It’s true, there’s a lot to consider – what property to buy, how much of a deposit you need and when to actually take the plunge. For the answers to those all-important questions, join us at our town centre branch for an exciting and informal drop-in evening on the who, why, what and how of getting your first mortgage.

Whether you’re poised to buy or not even remotely considering it, our team of expert Mortgage Consultants will be present to talk about different types of mortgages and what you might need to consider before applying for one, as well as more about the homebuying process and what to expect.

Remember, we’re not here to sell you anything – it’s all about raising awareness around mortgages and helping you to chart your own path to home ownership. That said, you’re of course more than welcome to take a look at our current mortgages to see whether there’s anything that might fit the bill!

If you’re stuck on square one and wondering if you’ll ever be able to afford a mortgage, you can speak to one of our savings supremos for tips on how to better manage your money and see how long it might take you to save up enough of a deposit. You can stay for as long or as little as you like – as long as you come away having learnt something you didn’t know before, we’ve done our job!

This event is completely free and open to first time buyers of any age. And of course, by way of apology of making you late for your dinner we’ll be serving all of the obligatory refreshments including teas, coffees and nibbles.

There’s no need to formally register for this event – simply drop in on the night.
