Who we are
We’ve been in the business advising and assisting people in your work situation for over a decade. Securing a mortgage that is perfect for your situation is a stressful time, even more so if you’re a contractor or self-employed. With our knowledge of the business, our main goal is to take away the stress and hassle, offering a service that is friendly, professional and efficient.
Once you’re ready to get a mortgage, not knowing how to get started or where to go can cause you to feel overwhelmed and stressed. This makes you want to race to the end, to secure a mortgage as quickly as possible, resulting in you securing one that is not suitable for you.
Our philosophy isn’t purely about the end; we aim to make the journey an exciting experience, where it will match that feeling when you first move into your new home.
How do we do this? We build a relationship with you. We aren’t working for you, we’re working together, to secure the most suitable mortgage for you and your family. If after we’ve began the process, you have any worries or reservations, all you have to do is pick-up the phone and let us put your mind at ease.
At the top of our priority list is you. We empathise with your situation and our services are designed specifically to make the process as easy as possible.
When you decide to work with us, you become part of the team. We will get to know each other, allowing us to work fast and efficiently together.
With our 10 years of experience, we’ve built relationships with all types of lenders. Once we get to know you, we know exactly who to call to get you the most suitable deal!

CFM was founded by Robin to offer a route for self-employed contractors and freelancers who struggle to get a mortgage with the high street bank, providing a truly personal and professional service to build long term relationships with all clients.
CFM’s aim is not only to secure one mortgage per client, but to help with all their mortgages until they are mortgage free, building lifelong client relationships. He also wants to bring self-employed professionals together, to join the exclusive community within CFM, giving them a platform where they can share their knowledge and experiences.

Let’s do it together!
I can not thank Robin Taylor from CFM enough for all his time, effort and professionalism which he has showcased whilst helping me to secure a competitive mortgage. As a professional myself working as a contractor I found the high street banks were struggling to understand my situation however Robin from CFM made the process seamless. He always returned my calls, emails and kept me in the loop throughout the process always calling me at pre-agreed times to fit around my working pattern.
Robin offers a free of charge service offering high quality advice up until a mortgage offer has been secured. Robin displayed fantastic customer service skills throughout and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends. It is refreshing to see someone so passionate about his role, Robin from CFM is a gold standard mortgage advisor. Thanks
Becoming a contractor was always going to mean complications when it came to getting a mortgage. Banks have turned me away previously based on salary and my chances of getting a mortgage offer seemed almost impossible until I found CFM.
CFM gave me a different way in and with years of experience to support their advice, I was given a new set of criteria to meet. A far more logical approach was taken and within no time at all, Robin from CFM presented a strong case to the lender, who promptly offered me my first mortgage with great terms and flexibility. CFM has a good sense of customer service, integrity and treats every case as an individual matter – there was no sense of being just a statistic like I would be on the high street.
I would highly recommend this broker for all contractors looking for a hassle-free mortgage. Robin will take care of everything from inception to the final mortgage offer from the lender – and offers continued support and advice throughout the completion process – all part of the package. Worth every penny.
Contractor Friendly Mortgages helped me secure a great deal. Concerned with the outcome of Brexit, I wanted to secure a decent fixed rate over 5 years.
They explained everything in detail, the pros and the cons. No pressure to take their recommendations, just straightforward, clear, understandable advice. I would highly recommend.
I worked with Contractor Friendly Mortgages as first time buyers. Being born outside the UK, I had little knowledge of the process but thanks to them, it went very smoothly and fast.
They were easy to reach and quick to respond for all my questions, and patiently explained everything to me clearly. They made me feel that I have a trustworthy partner on my side and I’d recommend them to anyone, especially fellow contractors.
Robin has been fantastic in guiding me through arranging my first mortgage as a software contractor. He was very responsive throughout and found a fantastic rate for me with a high street bank, within months of my first contract.
I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team! Having heard the numerous horror stories of contractors trying to obtain a mortgage, the process was completely seamless. We were kept upto date throughout the process and you managed to find a mortgage offer that was exactly what we required. Thank you for the support and I would have no reservations in recommending you to anyone.
Tom and Nina
Thank you very much for all your help and support with obtaining a mortgage for me. There was a lot of information that the mortgage lender needed to gather and the support you gave me in doing this was great.
You responded quickly in your communications and were good at letting me know what the next steps were from the beginning to completion. A great service.
It has been an absolute pleasure having Kathryn De Lorey working on our behalf to get us our mortgage. We found CFM online searching on google after having a hard time with other mortgage advisors trying to gain the correct advice on which mortgage to go with for our circumstances which resulted in us applying for a mortgage and not being offered enough as we didn’t meet their criteria.
As soon as I spoke to Kathryn she made me feel at ease again about the mortgage application process which previously had been a nightmare 3 months with other companies. Kathryn was highly experienced and confident she could find us the right mortgage for our situation. Within a couple of weeks, we had gone from other mortgage companies telling us we could not get the mortgage we needed for our dream home to then speaking with Kathryn at CFM and receiving our mortgage offer. I highly recommend CFM they have been fantastic to work with from start to finish.
Thank you to Kathryn and everyone at CFM.
