Jonathan is the consummate professional. We have worked with him on 3 occasions and each time he took the time to explain our options and the relative pros and cons. He has helped us save money and manage risk and truly a person we have come to trust. He has supported my wife’s family for many years and we will continue to work with him as long as he is working in the mortgage industry. If you are looking for sound advice and efficient management of changes needed I can’t recommend Jonathan and Ayla too highly.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan at Ayla Mortgages. He has always given me wise advice and when we came to needing to secure a mortgage deal the week that over 800 lenders withdrew their rates, he was up at midnight and then first thing the next day, holding on a phone line for several hours, until the deal was confirmed! He made a stressful time as easy for us as it could have been. I will always use him!

We had a fantastic experience with Jonathan at Ayla mortgages. As first time buyers we were new to the whole process, so Jonathan’s patience, support and recommendations were invaluable in getting us a great mortgage deal and ultimately our first home. Would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for a mortgage advisor.

Initially I decided to purchase a property without a mortgage advisor, but turns that having one, and as brilliant, knowledgeable and professional as Jonathan, was the best decision I made. Jonathan managed to arrange for me an excellent mortgage product in a very volatile time of interest rates increases, at a very short notice. Jonathan’s and the rest team’s professional and friendly work helped me navigate smoothly through the otherwise very stressful process of purchasing a property. For any question or concern I had, the team was always there to back me up. Jonathan also helped me select a very good insurance policy. It is wonderful to have a team of excellent professionals by your side for such a significant transaction.

Top level financial and mortgage advice. Having all my questions answered in most digestible way I could sleep peacefully during re-mortgage time. Jonathan was always available for “a quick chat” and very helpful to offer few scenarios before I made the final decision. I’ll be happily back!

Mortgage FAQs

Here you’ll find comprehensive answers to some commonly asked mortgage questions. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please contact us and we will be very happy to help you

We strive to make the mortgage process as straightforward as possible, and a dedicated and experienced mortgage adviser will take care of everything for you. Give us a call, or meet face-to-face if you are based in Dorset, to discuss your needs. We’ll learn more about you and make recommendations that best suit your needs and circumstances. We’ll scour the entire market to find the right mortgage and manage your application through to completion.

Our customers can access exclusive rates from mainstream and specialist lenders, such as small building societies, that aren’t available anywhere else. This means that Ayla Mortgages offer exclusive products that aren’t directly available from lenders or other brokers. This is one of the many benefits of using us.

Yes, Ayla Mortgages can also help customers secure home insurance. We currently offer home insurance through our partner LV, based in Bournemouth. 

Your Ayla Mortgages adviser will provide you with a full list of the required documentation for the lender, as each has different requirements. Common documentations include bank statements, three months of payslips, proof of address, proof of identity (passport or driving license), proof of deposit and a copy of your existing mortgage statement, if applicable. If you are self-employed, you’ll also need to provide copies of your business accounts.
Once we receive your application, your adviser will start your case. We follow your application through the entire process — from start to finish — dealing with any issues that may arise along the way. They’ll contact you by phone or email to update you on the progress of your mortgage application and whether you need to provide any further information.

Ayla Mortgages has access to the entire mortgage market. While you can use a website to find a mortgage that looks right for you and then apply to the lender directly, this may not be the best rate, and you may not qualify for the mortgage product you’ve selected. While going through us can be much cheaper, many of our exclusive mortgage products are available only from us and you will not have to dedicate hours of your time to chase the lender, solicitor and other parties involved.

Yes, a mortgage expert will scour the whole market to find the right mortgage for you and manage your entire mortgage application from start to finish.
