007: Research & Prepare to Win | Francis Worman | New Mortgage Solutions

How do I finance my holiday home?

Francis Worman of New Mortgage Solutions

Industry Expert-Director and founder of New Mortgage Solutions, Francis Worman, joined us today to discuss the importance of preparation and research when considering financing a Holiday Let Mortgage.

How do I finance my holiday home? What will the lenders ask me for? How do I know if I have enough equity in my property to release money to finance my holiday home?

Francis talks us through the whole process and the options available, with 25 years in the mortgage industry, there’s a lot of knowledge to draw on here! As brokers not tied to a specific lender, they have the whole spectrum of the market to approach and he knows what works! Francis works all day long with Holiday Let Mortgages.
