• Private Finance's reaction to the Autumn Statement 2015

    One of the most welcome developments from this year’s Autumn Statement is the Chancellor’s decision to provide 400,000 new homes which will go a long way to address the UK’s urgent need for more affordable housing.

Conor was great at handling our mortgage. From helping us understand how the process works. Reassuring us of what needs to happen when. Our mortgage was handled with care and understanding of our needs even when the changed. I’d highly recommend Conor to help guide you through the process of attaining a mortgage.
I used Private Finance for a mortgage as a foreign income earner. Michelle was thorough, organised & efficient in supplying me with the information I needed to make the right choice. The options she supplied me with were at great rates and everything was handled smoothly, despite more complicated circumstances than most. I will be using them again in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for a mortgage.
Michelle our broker was really helpful and knowledgeable. We have used private finance before and definetely would again.
