Direct, efficient mortgage advice

Roebuck was founded by experienced mortgage adviser Richard Mumford in 2018. Its focus is providing mortgage advice as efficiently possible, using automation and digital technology throughout. For clients, that means better value, time saved and a more direct route to the perfect mortgage products.

Why should you have to find time for phone calls or, worse, face-to-face consultation meetings? You’re after a mortgage, not applying for a job. If it can be done online, it should be.

More efficient processes, and less aimless chat, means more time for what matters. That is, getting to know you and really exploring the market.

Then, when we come to you with options, we’ll always explain the thinking behind them.


Our service is built around Intelligent Office software – the best in the industry.

Quality of service

Clarity, responsiveness and attention to detail underpin everything we do.

Clients come back to us time and again, and recommend us, because we treat them with respect.

Richard Mumford

Having begun his career in financial services nearly 27 years ago, Richard has spent most of this time being a holistic financial adviser for high net worth clients via Davenport Thomas. Davenport Thomas an already very well established business in the borough of Richmond and is now purely a pension and investment based business with Roebuck being a zoom based mortgage (residential and buy to lets) and protection business.

From experiences in life and helping clients at every stage of the financial planning journey, Richard is a strong advocate for the benefits of income and mortgage protection so that in any event, whether it be death or long term illness you/the survivor/the family will be able to stay in their Principal Residence.

We had a general review through Davenport Thomas (pension and investments). I didn’t expect us to be able to save money on our mortgage as the deal we were on was already very good. Richard helped us secure a cheaper deal with the same lender by just signing a few forms, after a week or so we started saving money on the new deal. We have already recommended one friend to Richard and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services in the future.

Richard and Lisa Keogh

Richard has been my financial adviser for over 10 years at davenport thomas. Has helped me with a number of residential and buy to let mortgages when things haven’t always been straight forward. Richard and I now do business via Zoom. Like Richard, I am very much of the opinion that this will be so much more efficient for my circumstances and many others moving forwards.
