ABOUT US

Freedom Finance is a trading style of Freedom Finance Ltd. We carry out brokerage services and provisions of credit information services.

We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for certain consumer credit activities. (FRN: 662079).

We comply with Data Protection laws in the United Kingdom and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our ICO register number is Z120757X.

We are registered in England and Wales, company number 06297533. Our registered office is Freedom Finance Ltd, Atlantic House, Atlas Business Park, Simonsway, Manchester, M22 5PR.

SERVICES WE OFFER

We offer a range of unsecured personal loans from a large panel of lenders so you can make an informed choice.

We offer full advice & recommendation on a range of second charge mortgages from a panel of lenders (a list of the Lenders we have access to is available on request). This means we will:

  • Complete a fact find and affordability assessment with you in order to understand your needs, preferences and circumstances.
  • Learn about your lifestyle and financial expectations over the life of the mortgage.
  • Explain the implications of the recommended mortgage features, both now, in the future and with interest rate movement.
  • Explain the costs associated with the mortgage and the impact of adding any of these to the mortgage.
  • Discuss the next steps and timescales including any administration /underwriting needed.

FEES & COMMISSION

For unsecured loans, we do not charge a fee for referral to a lender. Our income is derived from commissions paid by the lenders and other third parties we deal with for any successful introduction we make.

For second charge mortgages we may charge a fee, actual fees and charges will be explained by the adviser prior to application & submission to a lender. We may also receive commission paid by the Lenders.

There may be additional costs relating to the mortgage we recommend to you and these will be detailed in the Mortgage illustration which we will send to you. A list of commission rates payable by the lenders is available on request.

CREDIT CHECK AND DISCLOSURE

In order to process your application, we may search the files of licensed credit agencies, who will keep a record of the search, to confirm your particulars and for the purpose of a credit assessment. A record can be kept of such searches which may be used by other lenders in assessing future applications for finance by you and for fraud prevention. These organisations may use this information in the future to help make credit decisions, prevent financial crime and to trace debtors.

Information held about applicants by CRA's may already be linked to records related to one or more of your partners or members of your household. For the purpose of this application you may be treated as financially linked and the application may be assessed with reference to any ‘associated’ records.

We may also, as part of the application request a Lenders Decision in Principle. This would involve the Lender conducting either a soft or hard credit search on all applicants, which may leave a mark on your credit files and can have a negative impact on your overall credit scores.

It is important that the information you provide is both accurate and honest, and a true reflection of your circumstances. It is your responsibility to provide information in this way to a provider or organisation that provides products and services recommended for you. Failure to disclose relevant information, or change of circumstances, to a provider or Lender may result in your product being invalidated.

If false or inaccurate information is provided, or if a reasonable suspicion of fraud or any other criminal offence is identified, details will be shared with fraud prevention agencies, law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies who may access and use this information. We and other organisations may access and use the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies to prevent fraud and money laundering, for example, when:

  • Checking details on applications for credit and credit related or other facilities
  • Managing credit and credit related accounts or facilities
  • Recovering debt
  • Checking details of job applicants and employees

Details of the fraud prevention agencies we work with are available on request.

All transactions relating to our services provided are covered by, and adhere to, the Money Laundering regulations and Proceeds of Crime Act. Our responsibilities include, but are not limited to, verifying the identity and address of our customers. Identity verification checks may include electronic searches through the Electronic Identification Verification Service, electoral roll and use of credit reference agencies.

We may also require proof of your income and expenditure to satisfy these requirements.

ACCURACY OF LOAN QUOTE

Freedom Finance Ltd takes every care to ensure the accuracy of the loan quotes which are based on the latest information available from the lenders at that time. However, the lenders on the panel reserve the right to change % APR or % APRC rates and underwriting criteria at any time and without notice. This may result in a change to the loan/secured loan offered to you or may result in the loan/secured loans offer being withdrawn.

The accuracy of the loan/secured loan quotes depends upon the accuracy of the information you have provided. Freedom Finance Ltd and the lenders on the panel will conduct checks to verify the accuracy of the information you have provided. If information you have provided changes as a result of these checks, the original offer may be changed or withdraw.

The expected time periods from submitting your application to receiving your loan/secured loan funds are only a guide. Any delay in the returning of your loan documents, proof of income or identification and/or delays with any third party we or the lender need to contact in order to process your application, may result in your application taking longer to complete.

If you're thinking of consolidating existing borrowing you should be aware that although you may reduce your monthly outgoings you may be extending the terms of the debt and increasing the total amount you repay.

It's important that you can afford the repayments now and continue to do so throughout the term of the loan as failure to keep up with your repayments could lead to defaults, CCJ's, ultimately bankruptcy and affect your ability to obtain future credit.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK OR MAKE A COMPLAINT
