Whether you’re relocating to a smaller property or upsizing, we are here to help with managing your existing mortgage or switching you to a better deal.

People will often stay with their current lenders for ease rather than shopping around, but this typically results in higher and unnecessary costs. After a short consultation, one of our expert advisors will assess your needs and advise you on the most cost-effective solution, whether it be to stay with your current bank or building society or to move to a new lender. We can also explore options for funding things like home improvements, new cars or holidays or even to release funds to assist a family member with getting on the property ladder.
Let our impartial advisors do the hard work, who will search the market to find what’s just right for you. If we find you a better deal then we can save you money and help you switch lenders smoothly with no hassle, so you can sit back and relax.
We are here to help with more than just residential and investment mortgages; are you looking for a commercial mortgage? A commercial mortgage is essentially a business loan, which is secured on a non-residential property for commercial or business use. As a more complex type of mortgage, Oscar James Financial has the level of expertise to help take you through the application for a commercial loan for a variety of properties and land types. We have access to a wide range of both mainstream and specialist lenders to navigate the market and maximise your investment. Contact us today for impartial advice on the most suitable commercial mortgage for you.
If you don’t want to sell or move home but are looking to release tax-free equity tied up in your property, then we can help. If you are over 55, equity release can see money released as a lump sum or in smaller payments from your property to give financial relief. You can either take out a lifetime mortgage or opt for a home reversion plan. While a lifetime mortgage is a property loan, a home reversion plan will see you sell your property in full or a share of it while you continue to live there at no cost.
Oscar James Financial suggests seeking professional advice if you are considering this and are ready to assess your personal circumstances to help get you the very best from your equity release; we can also advise on reserving a share of your property to be kept as inheritance for your family.
