Personal Finance: Free advice

IF YOU want to short-cut your mortgage search, The Independent on Sunday is offering readers the chance to get hundreds of pounds worth of independent mortgage advice from one of the country's leading mortgage brokers, Chase de Vere. The company will find you the best mortgage to suit your circumstances - whether you are a first-time buyer or just looking to save pounds 50 a month by remortgaging your home with another lender.

In return you have to be prepared to be photographed and appear in a "Mortgage Makeover" feature, which will give details of your circumstances and Chase de Vere's advice. If you are interested, send a short letter outlining your situation to: Mortgage Makeover, The Independent on Sunday, One Canada Square, London E14 5DL. Or email i.berwick-
