Trussle has rebranded to Better since the time of recording:
Trussle’s mission is to become the leading online mortgage broker and service the UK public with great mortgage rates and exceptional customer service. In trying times, this is more important than ever. Becoming part of the Better Mortgage Corporation allows us to fulfil that promise. We exist to help build a better mortgage culture in the UK, where consumers can access the best rates for their circumstances quickly and fairly.

The average age of a first-time buyer in the UK is 32 and 33 in London and this is undoubtedly on the rise. Does age affect your ability to get a mortgage? In this second to last episode of series 8 of the Move iQ Podcast, Phil Spencer is joined by Tom Atley, Mortgage Adviser at Better to discuss how to get a mortgage if you’re over 40.
