From the first day that I contacted ‘Mortgages for business’ and spoke to Gavin, right through to the completion of the mortgage, the two of you have delivered outstanding client service.
You have been hugely proactive, supportive and helpful throughout. Always responding very quickly to emails and questions and really helped to get things sorted with the various lawyers by thinking outside the box and getting involved.
Thank you again for all of this - I look forward to the next refinancing working with you when we finish our current development (which should be autumn of this year!) – lets speak then!" A.M, Reading
