Hi all. Myself and my partner need to get some advice about our mortgage (it's quite complicated, so I won't bore you with the ins and outs here). I was wondering whether the Citizens Advice Bureau was a good start or would you recommend a mortgage/financial advisor? Thanks in advance
I must remember that "Money Saving" is not buying heavily discounted items that I do not need. :hello:

    I would very much doubt CAB have anyone qualified to give mortgage advice. (Although no reason why they couldnt have someone)

    I assume you are talking about doing something with your current mortgage rather than taking out a new one?

    You can find a local Mortgage Advisor through www.unbiased.co.uk if you dont want to go into details here

    You should note that this site doesn't check my status as a Mortgage Adviser, so you need to take my word for it. This signature is here as I follow MSE's Mortgage Adviser Code of Conduct. Any posts on here are for information and discussion purposes only and shouldn't be seen as financial advice.
  • Thanks Betmunch, yes, it's more advice on debt management really. We have a house that we don't want/need, have had no luck selling it and it is in negative equity. We are already on a payplan DMP for our unsecured debt but the house is just pushing us over the edge :(

    Hi, so do I need a mortgage adviser or a financial adviser?

    Neither. You need a debt advisor:

    You might also want to go onto the Debt Free Wannabe board to get advise about getting your debts under control.
