First Time Buyers

Buying your first home may seem like a scary process, but don’t worry here at Claire Hogg Mortgages & Protection Ltd we pride ourselves in our commitment to helping First Time Buyers and will assist you along every step of the process.

Although mortgages may seem very confusing at first, our advisors can ease your worries with simple and clear mortgage advice. Our aim is to help you understand your affordability and explain what deposits are required in a straight forward manor.

Our experienced advisors will discuss with you the different schemes available to help First Time Buyers and establish if any of these meet your needs.

We will take you through every step of the process from receiving your initial enquiry through to receiving the keys to your first home.

Home Mover

There are many things to consider when looking to move home…How much can I afford to spend? How much is my property worth? Do I have any early repayment charges? The list is endless.

As mortgage advisors we are able to guide you through every step of the process and ensure you consider all options before taking your property to the market.

We can ensure that you are fully informed and aware of all of the options available to you and will help you along the journey every step of the way.


As general living costs continue to rise, there has never been a more important time to review your mortgage. You probably review your insurance and credit cards every year, your mortgage should be looked at in the same.

Life circumstances change; your income may be higher or the value of your home may of increased. A remortgage is your chance to pay off your old mortgage and switch to a new one with a better interest rate, saving you hundreds of pounds.

Our advisors will find you the most suitable deal on the market that suits your needs and criteria.

Capital Raising

Some people remortgage purely for a better interest rate, while others look to raise money against their home, perhaps to funds home improvements, or to assist a child in buying their property.

Whilst you should consider carefully increasing your mortgage balance, this is something we are able to help you with, our advisors will complete a full review of your circumstances to establish if this is a possibility and if so make the right recommendation to meet your needs.


Buying a new home is an exciting time in life, however we also need to look at what would happen to you, your family and your home if the worst happens.

Our Protection Advisers are here to help you identify your protection needs and talk you through the options available to you, giving personal recommendations and helping you get the right protection in place.

No one likes to think about the worst so we are here to make it as simple and painless as possible, we will walk you through every process from our initial call to finding the right insurer based on your personal information, then submitting your policy.

We offer a range of different Protection cover to suit your needs:

  • Life Insurance
  • Critical Illness Cover
  • Income Protection
  • Whole of Life Cover
  • Over 50’s non-underwritten insurance
  • Buildings & Contents
  • Landlords Insurance

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
