News: IEP in FT Adviser

Posted on 21st August 2019

This week we are very proud to have featured in a Mystery Shopper Hove article in the FT Adviser.

The article compares interactions between a mystery shopper and other local Independent Financial Advisers in the Brighton & Hove area.

The shopper was trying to buy a one bed property worth £250,000. They mentioned having a deposit worth £40,000 saved up and a salary of £45,000. The shopper said they already own a place in Belgium. They were trying to find out how much stamp duty they would have to pay, and whether she can afford the property if she pays higher stamp duty.

One of our expert Mortgage Advisers, Philip Ball, helped the Mystery Shopper to understand all of the options available to them. Philip was able to present a few different options to the Mystery Shopper.

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
