Banks are involved in the housing market in many ways. They are a useful contact for short-term financial help when on the move – especially with bridging loans. However the banks are also a major source of home mortgages in addition to bridging and short-term loans. Their rates can be competitive especially for the larger advances. However the whole subject of home loan finance is so important that you must take advice as to which type and source of mortgage is most appropriate for you at this time. Please ask our advice.
