The Hanley is by far the most efficient and responsive organisation, financial or otherwise, than I can ever recall dealing with

My Hanley B/S mortgage has completed today. From first contact, having seen their RIO mortgage offered at an unbeatable interest rate, I have been most impressed with every aspect of the Hanley B/S. The phone has always been answered instantaneously by a real person, not a machine. Emails have always been acknowledged the same day. The two people who have been my contacts have been unfailingly knowledgeable, pleasant, polite and understanding of my currently rather challenging circumstances. The Hanley B/S would be doing a great service to the community if it were to set up a subsidiary to run courses for other organisations on the true meaning of 'customer care' and how to achieve it.

We were extremely lucky to work with Jane from The Hanley on the purchase of our first property together, from the start we knew that we had gone to the right place and felt extremely valued. The time and effort put into our application ensured that everything went smoothly and the purchase of our house was processed quicker than we anticipated - a huge contrast to the horror stories we had heard from friends and family who had used larger lenders!! Thank you Jane, we will definitely be returning to you and The Hanley for any future purchases!

As first time buyers we were really nervous about buying a house and had been burnt by a mortgage advisor who provided us with a mortgage-in-principal which was wrong so we were unable to get a mortgage on the house we put on offer on through her. However, after being recommended The Hanley through both family and friends, we made the phone call and got a prompt appointment. Jane Longmore was able to help us straight away with a mortgage that met our needs. Even through these truely unprecidented times, she was able to offer us the support we required and we have been living in our house for over 2 months now. We could not thank her enough! She was clear, thorough and not at all pushy. She was also always extremely responsive to all of our queries. Thanks so much Jane!

As first time buyers we were more than impressed at the service provided by Hanley Economic Building Society. We spoke with Jane, one of the mortgage advisors - she was wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and talked us through lots of different options, making sure we understood them all fully. She was open and honest about what would work best for us. She was very friendly and made the whole process very relaxing. I would highly recommend Hanley Economic for first time buyers if you want a smooth process.

I have gone through the mortgage process twice before with the larger high street banks, so I cannot stress enough how exceptional The Hanley are. Their customer service is impeccable and communication is consistent throughout the process. They truly make you feel like a valued customer and are very patient and accommodating should things go wrong with your purchase. Our mortgage advisor Lana was professional and supportive and I couldn’t be more grateful and lucky to have chosen this lender! Can’t recommend enough.

We held an arranged mortgage interview with adviser Jane Longmore which was very thorough and answered all our questions. She made us very much at ease and was not in any way pushy. Because we had very particular requirements we eventually chose another lender but The Hanley couldn't have done more to help us. And they are very competitive on their rates!

Appalling customer service it was made quit clear that we and any other customers weren’t welcome in branch and should only ring in(impossible for what was needed). I have worked frontline all through covid and to behave like this is unnecessary, unprofessional and scare mongering. I am 55 and my parents opened accounts for myself and my siblings when we were children . Will definitely be closing all accounts down when all this is over

We applied for a later life mortgage with the Hanley Economic Building Society. The application process was thorough but straight forward and any queries we had were dealt with promply by Jane Longmore, our Hanley's Mortgage Advisor who helped us throughout the whole process. Against the background of the conditions imposed by Covid 19, with people working remotely, the process went remarkably smoothly. We now have our mortgage and would like to thank all Hanley's staff for their help and assistance.
