Mortgages, Insurance, Life Cover & Conveyancing

Image of # from The Mortgage Shop, Broadstairs, Kent

Mike Friend and Gary Fairhall started The Mortgage Shop (Kent) Ltd, in Broadstairs in 1996 and they have nearly 50 years' experience between them in the Financial and Mortgage Industry.

The Mortgage Shop is completely independent and is not linked to one particular lender, so the service is totally geared to the clients' needs and not the needs of the mortgage companies.

We can therefore offer the full 'housing package' by arranging competitive solicitors' quotes, buildings and contents insurance, income protection, life and critical illness solutions.

It covers you for a fixed period and pays out a one off lump sum if you die during the policy term.
