Our fees and costs

Next Door does not charge clients fees, expenses or any other amount for the financial advice we provide. You will not be invoiced or asked to pay any fees to us at any time.

Our commissions

Next Door is paid in the form of commission from our lenders through which we place business. Commission is in the form of an upfront payment and some financial institutions provide an ongoing commission paid monthly or quarterly as well. Both of these figures are calculated as a percentage of the loan provided to you by the lender. The upfront sum is payment by the lender for providing you with mortgage advice related to its products and the ongoing monthly commission (if applicable) is paid to provide you with continued service and support over the term of your mortgage.

The upfront commission payment ranges from 0.6-0.85% of the loan amount depending on the lender. The commission rate will be confirmed in your Statement of Advice.

To ensure our advisers prioritise our clients’ interests we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made appropriately, based on clients’ goals and circumstances.
