Meet the Land Estates Team

Land Estates are professional and qualified estate agents in Dartford. Find out more about our Team below.

I have lived in Dartford all my life and there is no part of the town that I am not familiar with. I have raised my family happily in Dartford and would not consider living anywhere else.

My family have been involved in buying and selling properties in Dartford since I was a child and my father had a major influence on my decision to become an “Estate Agent”.

From 19 years old I was at his side and learnt the ropes and soaked up every piece of knowledge that I could learn from him regarding all aspects of this industry. So when I decided to start my own business in August of 2005, it made perfect sense to not only open up my own estate agency but to base my company in Dartford. I know every street, close, avenue, cul-de-sac and road that encompasses Dartford.

I believe from personal experience that the property industry is not for everyone. It really is a vocation built on passion, determination and commitment and I am happy to say that myself and my carefully chosen colleagues are all “fully paid up members of the club”.

Steven Hall Mortgage Advisor

Steven Hall

Hi, my name is Steve and I am a Mortgage & Protection adviser covering the south-east of England.


I have personally been involved in the Mortgage and protection industry for over 15 years, with 13 of those as an Adviser.

Here’s just some of the types of scenarios we can help with:
• Residential Purchases and Re-mortgages
• Buy to Let Purchases and Re-mortgages
• Let to Buy Re-mortgages
• Help to buy mortgages
• Right to buy mortgages
• Shared Ownership Mortgages
• Capital raising for home improvements or deposit on investment properties

I am always more than happy to discuss any enquiries you may have. We offer a very personal service and pride ourselves on taking the time to find the perfect solution for your requirements.

So how does it work? We normally start with an initial call that lasts 5-10 minutes to establish if your expectations are realistic and if we are likely to be able to help you. If that goes well we can then look to set up a full mortgage appointment. Normally this is via a video meeting. Our aim then is to give you an idea of the likely costs, how much you can borrow and ultimately working towards providing you with something called a ‘decision in principle’. A decision in principle is a certificate from a prospective lender that confirms that your credit history is acceptable and how much you can borrow. This will give you the confidence that you are in a position to make an offer on a property and ensure that you are taken seriously by an estate agent and the vendor. Note that many estate agents will not even allow a viewing until you have a decision in principle. Lastly, once you find a property and your offer is accepted, we then guide you through the whole mortgage application process with the aim of making it as simple as possible for you.

THE FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY DOES NOT REGULATE MOST BUY TO LET MORTGAGES

We typically charge a fee of £399 payable at the point of application for a purchase or on completion for a re-mortgage, however this will be dependent on your personal circumstances.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE
