Money advice 

Before buying a home, and obtaining a mortgage, it is very important that you are aware of what you are taking on, and what you can afford.

The Money Advice Service, which was set up the Government, offers you clear and unbiased advice and information to help you make the most of your money - and it’s free.

You can access the service online at www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk.

The site will also provide you with tools to assess your financial health, work out priority payments such as your mortgage, and obtain help and support if your circumstances change.
