What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

I was a 'hard-to-place' aspiring home owner, returning to the property market after the global financial crisis.

How has Chirag Patel helped you?

Against all the odds Chirag found me a suitable mortgage, helped me through the application process, then bore with me for the best part of two years while I searched for a suitable property to match it. Later, when my fixed rate came to an end he encouraged me in good time , and against my own inclination, to shop around for a replacement rather than waiting (in vain as it turned out!) for a new offer from my existing bank. I completed my remortgage in mid-2022 just as interest rates started to climb.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes. Chirag's advice could not have been more timely and apt. He and his excellent assistant Vicky also coaxed me through the remortgage process - above and beyond anything I could reasonably expect from their role as advisers.

What could they have done better?

Nothing to suggest here - dealing with banks can be pretty frustrating but Chirag and team did what they could to make the experience as painless as possible.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an adviser?

After a long property search, we finally found the right house for our next move. Our offer was accepted, and we need to acquire a mortgage in principle letter quickly in order to secure the agreed purchase price. Although we had a substantial deposit, we still required a mortgage and were unsure how much we could borrow.

How has Chirag Patel helped you?

We have not purchased a property for over 15 years and Chirag made an otherwise stressful process very easy. He understood our total situation, considering all the options available and provide us with excellent advice, guiding us throughout the process and answered our many questions. He ensured that we balanced our finances so as not to over stretch ourselves and that we could purchase our next home, even when he purchase price increased due to changes in circumstances, Chirag was calm and informative on what our options were. I cannot rate Chirag's services high enough, outstanding, calm, and informative is what you need from an adviser in what can be a very stressful and emotional process. Thank you Chirag.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Absolutley, we have managed to complete the purchase of our next home without overstretching our finances.

What could they have done better?

Nothing

Chirag's reply

Rob - I really appreciate you finding time so soon after completion to leave such comprehensive feedback! As I know how much this home means to the whole family, it was a delight and pleasure to have been a part of the process, and it is testament to your excellent organisation and clarity of thinking that you have the keys to such an impressive property!

We were looking for a rock-solid partner to help guide us remortgage our family home

How has Chirag Patel helped you?

Chirag instilled confidence with an initial chat, and provided a portal for us to input the details that he needed to find us the best deal. As we needed to remortgage on a single income we faced a shortfall that might have seen us unable to secure a special rate and have to accept a punitive Standard Variable Rate. Chirag however was able to find us an extremely competitive special rate and work with our challenges to a successful outcome.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, we definitely have had a great outcome thanks to Chirag. We have been able to secure a great special rate and not have to liquidate assets to make up the shortfall in order to reach that outcome.

What could they have done better?

I'm not sure what Chirag or Vicky could have done better to be honest - their communication was always friendly, concise and timely - and ultimately we feel we got the best possible result for our circumstances. Perhaps the data entry categories on the portal did not always quite match our details, but that's pretty normal for software in my experience, and Chirag encouraged us to send any 'misfit' information to him and Vicky directly as needed.

Chirag's reply

I appreciate your kind words and delighted we secured everything in time. We will take the portal feedback into account with the developers.
