How to secure a mortgage for NHS staff
The process couldn’t be simpler. As NHS staff work long and unsociable hours, we at Fox Davidson can work by email, phone, and online. We are flexible in our working hours, too, so if you wish to speak with a mortgage broker in the evening or early in the morning, we can accommodate that. While you are busy doing your job, you can rest assured that we will be busy securing the finance you require. We will liaise with the lender, the surveyor, estate agents and solicitors to bring about a swift conclusion to your house buying and remortgage process.
