More mortgage availability for silver borrowers

It’s good news for older borrowers as homeowners in their 80s now have more choice than ever when it comes to getting a mortgage. Until recently, there wasn’t a single mortgage available that would lend to prospective borrowers who were between 80-84 when their mortgage was due for repayment. However, according to data analysts Moneyfacts*, […]

I first approached First Financial Solutions in early 2019 to discuss our options for my wife and I to buy our first home together. Having not only just returned to the UK following 3 years living overseas but also myself being a newly registered sole trader we knew that our application was going to be challenging for our broker. Nevertheless Gareth took this information in his stride and guided us through the obstacles to expect and how we would overcome them. Together we made a plan for the next 12 months and stayed in touch for periodic updates. During this timeframe the coronavirus pandemic also emerged and added its own mixture of challenges to mortgage applications in general. During our periodic discussions Gareth managed our expectations as new requirements emerged and the goalposts were changed such as the lenders requiring a 15% deposit rather than the 10% we initially planned for. At no point were we waiting on any documents or correspondence from Gareth and found him and the company to be very proactive and prepared. Yes using a broker comes at a cost that you may be able to avoid by going through your bank but what you receive in exchange I feel is best described as the human factor. A bank will offer you one of the few products they have available and if you don’t fall into their limited categories then you’re simply unsuitable. First Financial Solutions searched the whole market for a product that best suited our personal circumstances, finding a mortgage that best fitted our criteria, instead of us trying to fit the criteria of the lenders. Gareth and the company as a whole were professional, passionate and are clearly highly experienced in their work. I would be pleased to recommend their services to any friends, family or business clients in the future. Thanks guys.

Can’t speak highly enough of Gareth. Due to work comitments I was unable to attend the FFS (wales) office during office hours. Gareth gladly came to my home (after hours) and provided me with a mortgage at a much better rate than his competitors. Whilst he was here we got some insurances sorted. I now have critical illness and life insurance. Top service! Thanks Gareth and the team at FFS (wales)

I would highly recommend the team at First Financial Solutions helped me to secure a mortgage on my new property. They were able to offer a full range of mortgages and dealt with all the paperwork that needed to be sent back and forth to the mortgage company. They also helped us arrange life insurances and some additional protection to pay bills etc in case of an issue or sickness etc. First Class Service!!

I would like to show my appreciation for the recent re-mortgage of my property under taken by Gareth Morgan and his team at First Finance Solutions. Gareth’s advice every week in BNI is that there is a better deal out there with regard to mortgages. Well here’s the proof. Gareth was able to save me nearly £100.00 per month on a fixed 5 year deal. The communication and attention to detail throughout the process was first class. I would highly recommend First Financial Solutions to anyone looking to re-mortgage.
