Principal and Founder
I have over twenty years of experience in senior roles with a range of well known financial services brands including Halifax, Yorkshire Building Society, Bank of Ireland and Friends Life.
I set up Clifton Mortgages because I felt that financial services was too siloed and too transactional and customers deserved better.
I believe in providing a tailored, professional service to all of my customers. I do this by taking a thorough and holistic view, of not only your present needs but also of your long term, broader requirements and circumstances.
I will use all of my experience and contacts to give you the best possible advice and the best possible service, both now and in the years to come.
As well as being a fully qualified mortgage and equity release adviser, I am a also a law graduate and will ensure that my broad skills and experience are used to consider all aspects of your personal circumstances and the market when advising you.
Mortgage and Protection Adviser
Originally from Leigh in Greater Manchester, I have lived in the Bristol and Bath area for over 20 years.
I have a wealth of experience in mortgages and protection with around 15 years of advice experience.
I'm married with two children and love all things rugby related and previously played Rugby League for Salford.
As well as receiving commission from providers, Clifton Mortgages may charge a fee for our services. These will be clearly outlined in our terms of business and a fee agreement document at the outset but are likely to be as follows:-
Residential Mortgage and Buy To Let Advice
We will not charge a fee for an initial consultation but we do charge a flat fee of £395 on standard residential and buy to let mortgages if we successfully obtain a formal offer for you. This will be reduced to £295 if you complete your fact find details online using the electronic fact find on our secure portal. If we don’t get you your offer then there is no fee. N.B. A higher fee applies to complex cases e.g. for cases involving adverse credit, overseas applications or portfolio buy to let cases.

We will not charge a fee for an initial consultation but we do charge a flat fee of £995 on completion of any application.
Protection and General Insurance
We do not charge a fee for arranging protection and general insurance products.
3rd Party Specialist Referrals
In some circumstances we may refer customers to specialist third party advisers and may receive and introducer fee or share of any commission that adviser receives. This will include bridging, commercial and second charge loan applications. We may at our discretion charge a fee as well. Any such fee will be discussed at the time and will vary according the nature of the application and any work we are required to undertake as well.
