Since changing to First direct from Halifax back in January there's been nothing but praises for this company. i've not had to complain at all. whenever i call up there's no automated service you get put through to a real person straight away. waiting times for calls are minimal. If i need any questions answered in a few days i can send a secure message and recieve a message back. With regards to credit limit all i need to do every month is send them an email with the credit limit i want to decrease to and this is done within a couple of days.

Beware of First Direct Offset Mortgages

I had an offset mortgage with first direct in 2000. I made overpayments on the understanding that I can have access to surplus funds at any time as long as I kept paying monthly instalments regularly.
When I needed a lump sum from my overpayments to do home renovations after 17 years of regular payments, they bluntly refused on the pretext that a second charge was applied on my mortgage!!!
Morale: Avoid First Direct Offset Mortgages! If you have to take one with First Direct, never make overpayments. Your savings will go into a black hole and you will never see this money again!!
Beware!!!

I have a credit card and current account with First Direct. Their customer service is second to none. Calls are answered quickly, queries are resolved swiftly and explained in a way that I understand. Being online only is not a problem at all with customer service as high as this.
I do find the App and online banking clunky but love the weekly update texts which keep me well informed.
Other banks need to look to First Direct as inspiration to up their game! Well done First Direct.

I have both a credit card and current account with first Direct. Their customer service is second to none. Calls are answered quickly, queries are dealt with swiftly and painlessly and always explained in a way that I fully understand. My only gripe is the app is a little clunky to use as is the online application.
Other banking rivals could learn a lot from this provider's excellent to customer service.
