I would highly recommend Lime Financial. Charlotte was very informative and explained everything extremely well. She put my mind at ease straightaway and any worries I had we talked them through. She has kept me up to date consistently and helped with various different products such as buildings and contents insurance as well as life time cover. Thank you Charlotte!
“Would defintely use again.”
My fixed rate was coming to an end on my current mortgage which meant that my monthly payments were going to increase substantially. Charlotte helped me find a new deal with a new lender and saved me a considerable amount of money on my monthly payments which is never a bad thing! The process and communication from start to finish was amazing I was kept in the loop the whole way and didn't have to do a great deal as she the hard work for me.
“Would recommend 100%”
Friendly, well explained at every step of the way. No pressure discussion and recommendation that was perfectly suitable
Exceptional service from Charlotte at Lime Financial every step of the way through my mortgage application. Charlotte always gives you solutions instead of problems and was fantastic with her communication from start to finish, so I was always up to date with where things were at with the application. I'd highly recommend Lime for their efficient, slick and friendly service.
