    Mr Uddin

    Thank you very much for this, you've done something that many have failed to do!!!

    Mr Osunde

    I am pleased to inform you that our mortgage has been completed today. I am immensely grateful for all your support and level of professionalism.
    Again, you have shown excellence at its best!

    Ms Smart

    I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone seeking advice and help getting a mortgage. Rebecca is very knowledgeable and had patience with me when finding the perfect mortgage suited to me. Having never had a mortgage before it was all very new and Rebecca made sure I fully understood each part. Rebecca offered a friendly service and nothing was ever too much trouble. 

    Mrs Moore

    I highly recommend Rebecca who provided exceptional and very prompt advice. Rebecca sorted out our mortgage switch with the minimum of effort on our part just a few emails and messages and the job is done

    Mr Ulfet

    You have been a star throughout this process and I know we would not have achieved any of this without your help. You are the best. Thank you once again.

    Mr Jones

    Just wanted to email to say thank you for all your effort in my remortgage. Much appreciated and I’ve been using you guys since 2003 and will continue to do so! Good job!

    Miss Perks

    Our Services 
    
    Mortgages
    
    We are independent mortgage advisers and we will recommend a mortgage product that is suitable for you following an assessment of your personal needs and circumstances. This will include a detailed assessment of affordability.
    
    We will consider all products and lenders that we have access to. This means we will not consider those lenders that are only available by you going direct to them. 
    
    Where you are increasing your borrowing we will consider the merits of both a new first charge mortgage and securing this by an additional mortgage on a second charge basis. You may also have the option of a further advance from your existing lender or borrowing through an unsecured loan but whilst these may be more appropriate for you, we will not consider these when making our recommendation to you.
    
    Insurances
    
    Non-investment protection contracts - we offer non-investment protection term assurance, income protection and critical illness from a range of insurers. We will provide you with advice and arrange the contract on your behalf after an assessment of your personal needs circumstances  
    
    General Insurance Contracts - we offer buildings & contents insurance, accident, sickness & unemployment (ASU) from a limited range of insurers; - Uinsure, Source and Legal & General. We will provide you with advice and arrange the contract on your behalf after we have assessed your demands and needs for a particular type of insurance     
    
    The Costs of our Service 
    
    We charge a fee for providing advice and submitting your mortgage application.  Part of this fee becomes payable on application for a mortgage deal and part on offer. A typical fee is £750, £395 of which is payable on application and £355 on offer.
    
    We will receive and retain a commission from the lender when your mortgage completes. This amount will be confirmed by the lender in their disclosure document. 
    
    Should you wish you can request to view the commission rates from each of the lenders we have considered at the time that we make our recommendation to you.
    
    Refund of fees 
    
    Please note our fee will still be charged should the lender reject your mortgage application due to you not disclosing any material information about your personal situation. It should also be noted we do not provide a refund should you decide not to proceed with the mortgage loan after we have made a recommendation to you.
    
    Non-Investment Protection and General Insurance Contracts
    
    We do not charge a fee as we will receive commission from the provider after the policy has been placed on risk. 
    
    Our Ethical Policy 
    
    We are committed to providing the highest standard of financial advice and service possible. The interest of our clients is paramount to us and to achieve this we have designed our systems and procedures to place you at the heart of our business. In doing so, we will:
    
    be open, honest and transparent in the way we deal with you;
    
    not place our interests above yours;
    
    communicate clearly, promptly and without jargon;
    
    seek your views and perception of our dealings with you to ensure it meets your expectations or to identify any improvements required.
    
    Cancellation rights 
    
    Certain protection and insurance contracts allow you the right to cancel after a contract has been put in force. Prior to you entering into a contract of protection or insurance we will provide you with specific details should this apply to include: its duration; conditions, practical instructions and any costs for exercising it, together with the consequences of not exercising it.
    
    Instructions
    
    We prefer our clients to give us instructions in writing, to aid clarification and avoid future misunderstandings.  We will, however, accept oral instructions provided they are confirmed in writing.  
    
    Complaints
    
    If you wish to register a complaint, please write to Cutting Edge Mortgages LTD, 50 Main St, Lowick, TD15 2UA or telephone 01289 388 736.

    Privacy Policy Customer Privacy Notice
    
    Why should you read this document?
    
    During the course of dealing with us, we will ask you to provide us with detailed personal information relating to your existing circumstances, your financial situation and, in some cases, your health and family health history (Your Personal Data). This document is important as it allows us to explain to you what we will need to do with Your Personal Data, and the various rights you have in relation to Your Personal Data.
    What do we mean by “Your Personal Data”?
    
    Your Personal Data means any information that describes or relates to your personal circumstances. Your Personal Data may identify you directly, for example your name, address, date or birth, National Insurance number. Your Personal Data may also identify you indirectly, for example, your employment situation, your physical and mental health history, or any other information that could be associated with your cultural or social identity. 
    In the context of providing you with assistance in relation to your Mortgage and/or Insurance requirements Your Personal Data may include:
    •	Title, names, date of birth, gender, nationality, civil/marital status, contact details, addresses and documents that are necessary to verify your identity
    •	Employment and remuneration information, (including salary/bonus schemes/overtime/sick pay/other benefits), employment history 
    •	Bank account details, tax information, loans and credit commitments, personal credit history, sources of income and expenditure, family circumstances and details of dependents
    •	Health status and history, details of treatment and prognosis, medical reports (further details are provided below specifically with regard to the processing we may undertake in relation to this type of information) 
    •	Any pre-existing mortgage and/or insurance products and the terms and conditions relating to these
    
    The basis upon which our Firm will deal with Your Personal Data
    
    When we speak with you about your mortgage and/or insurance requirements we do so on the basis that both parties are entering a contract for the supply of services. 
    In order to perform that contract, and to arrange the products you require, we have the right to use Your Personal Data for the purposes detailed below.
    
    Alternatively, either in the course of initial discussions with you or when the contract between us has come to an end for whatever reason, we have the right to use Your Personal Data provided it is in our legitimate business interest to do so and your rights are not affected. For example, we may need to respond to requests from mortgage lenders, insurance providers and our Compliance Service Provider relating to the advice we have given to you, or to make contact with you to seek feedback on the service you received.
    On occasion, we will use Your Personal data for contractual responsibilities we may owe our regulator The Financial Conduct Authority, or for wider compliance with any legal or regulatory obligation to which we might be subject. In such circumstances, we would be processing Your Personal Data in order to meet a legal, compliance or other regulatory obligation to which we are subject.
    The basis upon which we will process certain parts of Your Personal Data
    
    Where you ask us to assist you with for example your insurance, in particular life insurance and insurance that may assist you in the event of an accident or illness, we will ask you information about your ethnic origin, your health and medical history (Your Special Data).

    If you have parental responsibility for children under the age of 13, it is also very likely that we will record information on our systems that relates to those children and potentially, to their Special Data.
    The arrangement of certain types of insurance may involve disclosure by you to us of information relating to historic or current criminal convictions or offences (together “Criminal Disclosures”). This is relevant to insurance related activities such as underwriting, claims and fraud management. 
    We will use special Data and any Criminal Disclosures in the same way as Your Personal Data generally, as set out in this Privacy Notice.
    Information on Special Category Data and Criminal Disclosures must be capable of being exchanged freely between insurance intermediaries such as our Firm, and insurance providers, to enable customers to secure the important insurance protection that their needs require.

You will usually provide information during the course of our initial meetings or conversations with you to establish your circumstances and needs and preferences in relation to mortgages and insurance.
