    Did you sign an agreement with them? What did it say?
    Did they research and check the lenders affordability? Can you see what evidence they have to check it passes affordability to make sure it wasnt just a punt?

    Personally i charge a fee based on mortgage offer so if the mortgage gets refused i refund the fee. So you may be able to get it back.

    At least you'll be able to settle your debts. Was the intention to consolidate your unsecured debts into the new mortgage.

    Ask them to find a new lender?

    Its not just affordability it needed to pass, your broker should have been on the phone to their account manager at natwest to ask at xx% LTV with £xxxx debt would they underwriters look on it favourably or not.

    Thats my opinion.

    If you have paid them a fee i would get them to find a new lender for you. If natwest were going to say yes then i reckon there will be other lenders.
