We know how busy life gets. Often the only chance you get to sit down and do life admin is at work on a shared computer with Barbara from corporate breathing down your neck. Not ideal. Particularly when you need to take time off to go to remortgage meetings with your (albeit very friendly) broker team half way across town.
That’s why we’ve created our all new online portal for life admin #onthego. From the comfort of your bus seat / hipster coffee bar / boring first date interlude, you can go through the whole remortgage process online. At the tap of a phone screen, you can upload images of your ID, bank statements and other important documents to your secure online portal. The entire remortgage application can also be carried out remotely, whilst you check in with your progress anywhere in real time.
We’ll talk you through each step as you need and at your own speed, notifying you of any updates along the way. It’s so quick and easy to use remotely, you can really lean in to that #hermitlife and never see our faces again. We hope you do though, we get lonely.
In other exciting news, Heron have gone fee free as of January 2020. What does that mean exactly before we get too excited? Well, to welcome in a brave new world this year, we’ve cut fees across all of our services so you won’t pay a penny to access the full array of Heron Financial benefits. By full range, we mean fully free full range! That includes: access to a dedicated case manager; customised expertise on Help to Buy, Shared Ownership and other schemes; providing a ‘mortgage makeover’ to make sure your case is as attractive as possible to our extensive list of potential lenders; consistent advice throughout the whole process.
Depending on your situation and the size of your particular case, there may be the odd situation where you will have to pay fees, but 97% of cases will be entirely fee free.
It’s also worth noting that while we don’t typically charge a broker fee, we do reserve the right to charge a fee of up to £999 dependent on the amount of research and administration that is required.
We’re fully regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, the UK’s independent financial regulatory body. Our brokers are fully qualified and backed by a team of experts in compliance and case management.
