Previously we used John Moore to remortgage our house. He provided sound financial advice, saved us money and reduced our mortgage term. Recently we contacted John again to remortgage. He was friendly, professional and quick to respond. John even remembered us after 5 years. After reviewing all our information John recommended the best deal would be to go directly to the mortgage provider. This was a selfless act, showing his integrity and was looking out for the customer. We would recommend John to anyone else and will be contacting him when our mortgage expires again. Thank you again John.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you explain how mortgages work?

Yes. That’s what we’re here for! Your home may be repossessed if you don’t keep up the repayments on your mortgage, so it’s vital that you understand the commitment you’re making.

Do we have to buy insurance?

The lenders will ask you to put buildings insurance in place, before they’ll release their funds. And we’ll encourage you to put a ‘people policy’ in place – to make sure you and your family have access to money that will help pay that mortgage – if the unexpected happens to you.

Which type of mortgage do we need?

Let’s find out. We’ll find out what your current situation is – your income and your outgoings – and we’ll look at the deals available for a range of mortgage types, too. Don’t worry, we can explain how each mortgage would work in detail.

Why use a mortgage advisor?

When you want a mortgage, it’s good to get impartial advice and MAPIO can provide this. Any mortgage advice service, York-based or anywhere else, should start by helping you to understand how much you can afford. At MAPIO, one of the first things we’ll do is go through a thorough cost of moving exercise with you.

This way, we can give you the mortgage advice that is right for you. It’s mortgage advice that has real value – getting you a mortgage that suits your needs. If you have a long term relationship with your bank, you might look at their mortgages – but you won’t see all the other mortgage deals available, and bear in mind we have exclusives deals not available direct or on the high street. If you get a mortgage without mortgage advice, it’s called an ‘execution only’ application – which we don’t recommend. At MAPIO we advise you on what is best for you now and what is best for you moving forward.

MAPIO is a York mortgage advisor that believes your future happiness depends on your family being secure, financially and we are here to help, guide and support you on that journey.
