One good turn deserves another

Have we given you our time and advice for free?

Sometimes, after visiting us, we advise a customer not to make any changes to their current arrangements or we may advise them to go back to their current lender. In cases such as these, Oak Tree Mortgages does not receive a commission or fee from the mortgage lender.
 
Rather than charging a fee for our time, we would like to invite you to make a small donation to our nominated charity, Shelter. Oak Tree Mortgages have set up a page on the Virgin Money Giving website to allow our customers to make a donation towards the work carried out by Shelter.
