Record year for Derby mortgage and insurance advisers

Lee Mortimer

Mortgage and insurance advisers, Oviso Financial Services, have helped clients with deals worth £37.5m in 2018 so far, thanks to Derby’s buoyant property market.

That means the company is on track to complete on mortgages valued at a record £60m this year – up by more than £5m in 2017.

It continues the upward curve for the company which has helped home-buyers achieve mortgages worth more than a quarter of a billion pounds since it opened eight years ago.

Managing Director, Lee Mortimer, said: “Properties in the Midlands are really good value and we have been delighted with how many great deals we have found for clients.

“There have been many stories by London-based media which suggest that it is difficult for potential home-owners. Of course, it may be in the south-east where half a million pounds may be needed to buy a first home.

“They portray it as all doom-and-gloom, but here, in Derby there is no doom and gloom. A starter home purchase is more than likely here with a deposit of just 5%.”
