“The Financial Detectives were able to help me achieve my dream of owning my own home when no one else could . In today’s tough mortgage climate I was not an easy case, middle aged, self employed divorcee! But they did it!! Their approach is honest and personal and I highly recommend them as a family firm”
K Reeves, 2017
Having used Dan Rowden and the team at the Financial Detectives for several years now, I can highly recommend them for providing the best advice and a truly friendly, knowledgable and efficient service when it comes to arranging both residential and BTL mortgages. Paul Denham, 2017
