At Independent Mortgage Advice Bureau, we have been advising our clients on their mortgage and insurance needs since 1999. Whilst we can offer our expert advice to anyone across the UK, we have advisers based in Harrow, Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Harpenden, Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard & Sheffield. We can also offer face to face appointments in our branches too if our clients prefer to meet with our expert advisers in person. Our ethos is simple, Your Mortgage, Your Way!, and we strive to adhere to our 4 principles:

  • Simple - All you need to do is get in touch and one of our friendly advisers will be happy to answer all your questions.
  • Fast - Our team of Case Handlers will chase up the lenders and solicitors on your behalf to make sure your application is processed quickly.
  • Affordable - Our advice is always free and we will only charge a fee (typically £249) when you ask us to handle your mortgage application.
  • Trusted - Still not convinced? Have a look at what our customers say about us on Trustpilot.

Getting a mortgage can be a challenging and complicated process. That’s why you need regular access to expert guidance and support from people you know you can trust. Our aim is to provide you with professional knowledge of the market and excellence in customer service whilst being on hand to help every step of the way.

We're committed to helping you fully understand the broad range of options available to you so that you can work with us to make an informed decision about the product that is most suited to your individual requirements.


As a responsible employer, it is important our values match that of our employees, and our clients. We have engaged with both, and in 2023 created iMAB in the Community, a project which supports a suicide prevention charity, another charity which provides services and support to adults with physical and/or sensory disabilities, a sports club where two of our staff members participate and a green/environmental charity in the form of the Forest of Marston Vale. We want to thank the local community that has supported us in business since 1999 by giving back where we are able to.

iMAB are proud to support local charities and clubs as we love giving back to our community and making a difference.  The organisations we support are close to our hearts and we hope to continue to raise money and awareness of these awesome charities. 

iMAB has a commitment to green issues and taking out a mortgage through iMAB directly leads to iMAB planting trees. There will be one tree planted per 25 mortgages each year and iMAB staff will join Forest of Marston Vale on a planting day each year.

The team at iMAB volunteer at the charities, run marathons and get involved in other fundraising activities, if you use us for arranging your mortgage application it will directly count towards us planting trees in the Forest of Marston Vale.
