Case Studies

At Advantage we are the Mortgage Experts. 

We are a Bristol based team of mortgage and protection experts with decades of experience. As we primarily advise over the phone, we cover the entire UK and help British expats in most countries around the world.

Our service is primarily designed to help people told ‘no’ elsewhere obtain a mortgage. 

Client types we help most often include:

  • Borrowers over 50 years old
  • Self-employed customers
  • Expats
  • Customers with credit issues

Nonetheless, we still arrange plenty of mortgages for customers who just want good old-fashioned customer service, such as first time buyers or people remortgaging.
