We will treat all your information as private and confidential (even when you are no longer a client) except where we are permitted to disclose your information by law, or where the disclosure is made at your request, or is made with your consent in relation to arranging your mortgage. Where necessary to process your application your data will be shared with third parties such as Lenders, joint applicants and credit reference agencies.
Where your application has been introduced by a third party, for example another broker, we may disclose information concerning the progress of your application to them.
Telephone calls may be recorded for monitoring and staff training purposes.
We will store the information we hold about you on computer and in other records. We will use your information in accordance with the principles of the Data Protection Act and GDPR, including data security requirements.

Should you wish to exercise this right, or if you have any questions or comments regarding our data protection policy or any matter referred to in our policy, please contact the Data Protection Officer at the correspondence address shown below.
We will only perform an “Enquiry Search” at the initial stage, which will not affect your credit rating. If you decide to proceed with one of the mortgages we offer then we will perform an “Application Search”. We will do this on behalf of the lender and only when we have received your signed application form from you. Application searches may affect your credit score as they are used by lenders when deciding whether to lend you money.

This information may also be used for debt tracing and the prevention of money laundering as well as the management of your account.
To prevent or detect fraud, or to assist in verifying your identity, we may make searches of Group records as well as using fraud prevention agencies who will supply us with information. We may also pass information to financial and other organisations involved in fraud prevention to protect ourselves and our customers from theft and fraud. If you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we will record this. We, members of the Group, and other companies may use this information if decisions are made about you or others at your address(es) in relation to credit or credit-related services.
In addition to the terms stated for a credit search above, by stating a financial association with another party, you are also declaring that:
- You are entitled to disclose information about your joint application and/or anybody else referred to by you
- You authorise us to search, link and/or record information at credit reference agencies about you and/or anyone else referred to by you
Information held about you by the credit reference agencies may already be linked to records relating to one or more of your partners. For the purpose of this application you may be treated as financially linked and your application will be assessed with reference to any “associated” records.
