As first-time buyers, the foray into understanding mortgages and applications appeared daunting and frustrating at first. However, after a colleague shared their experience with The Hanley and in particular, Lana Beech, deciding on a lender quickly became a no brainer.
From the outset, Lana was helpful, positive and friendly. Our sellers wanted a quick sale and Lana did everything she could to ensure our application progressed as quickly as feasibly possible, ensuring all adequate information of my wife's business finances were in order and that any concerns or queries we had were answered promptly.
I would, and already have, recommended the Hanley and Lana.

Thank you, once again. Tim & Chelsea.

My girlfriend and I had a stressful experience buying our flat. We had problems with solicitors, mortgage brokers and long delays at every stage. The one exception to this was our experience with the Hanley and our mortgage adviser Jane Longmore.

Jane was helpful, friendly and really responsive. She went over and above to help us, explaining everything really clearly, answering our many questions and ensuring we could get our application through as quickly as possible (down from an estimated 2 months to a couple of weeks).

We would wholeheartedly recommend Jane and the whole team at the Hanley (including Alistair and Danielle) for first time buyers and everyone else. We will certainly be sending our friends her way and we will be back as and when we decide to remortgage or move! Thanks again Jane for all your help, we are now happy and settled in our new flat.

I would like to take this opportunity to praise a member of staff at The Hanley Economic. The person I dealt with was Lana Beech, a Mortgage Advisor. I must say from start to finish of the mortgage process Lana was exemplary in her approach. We dealt primarily by email or phone. At every stage if I had a question, I would email her and ask her to ring when available. She never delayed in her response and dealt with my questions both efficiently and with such a pleasant demeanour. I never felt I was a bother no matter how stupid my question may have been. She in my opinion is a brilliant advertisement of how to treat a customer and a tremendous asset to the Building Society. Today, we are so quick to complain but when you have received such excellent services, we should take the time to praise. Thankyou Lana for making such a stressful process an absolute joy.

Jane Longmore was really helpful throughout the process of my re-mortgage. I felt listened too and have secured a mortgage deal that I am very happy with. Jane was consistently helpful and approachable and responded very efficiently with any queries I had. I would recommend this personal service to others.
The staff at Hanley Economic I have always found to be approachable and friendly. Thank you Jane and team.

Lana Beech at The Hanley Economic has been absolutely fantastic with supporting Myself and my Partner when applying for a Mortgage with The Hanley & Porting our current Mortgage with them.

She has made the process seem easy and nothing has never been too much trouble even though there has been a few issues along the way due to the Solicitor Reports we received from the previous property we were going to purchase.

The House Buying process can be quite stressful as a Young Couple due to not knowing the process fully and Lana has always been on hand to support and being professional with whatever questions we have had.

Thank you to Lana & The Hanley for assisting us with all enquiries, we would 100% recommend.

Lana, our mortgage advisor was friendly, supportive and efficient. She went out of her way to meet with us and to make sure that we had everything we needed to process the paperwork quickly. Whilst the paperwork was being processed, she stayed in touch with us and we were confident that if we had any questions, they would be answered quickly. Despite a 6 week completion date being imposed on us at the offer stage, as soon as we met with Lana and the team we knew that she would do everything possible to meet it and we could stop stressing. Even our solicitor commented how good the Hanley have been to work with and the whole process - offer to completion has been done in 6 weeks. I cannot recommend the Hanley and Lana enough. Thank you.

Staff at the Hanley have been amazing - they went out of their way to ensure I had a mortgage in principle in time for our house viewing. Once we had made our offer we were on a very short timescale which we couldn't have met without staff changing their appointments to meet with us and being able to submit documentation remotely. There has been supportive communication through e-mail - not at all intrusive and a definite feeling that they were on our side working to get us into out new house. The whole process was completed within the 6 weeks specified by the vendor. I cannot recommend the Hanley enough. Thank you

I tried different mortgage advisors to arrange a self build mortgage and each of them were unable to help. I eventually found the Hanley Economic Building Society myself and I was expecting the same answer that I had from all the other lenders that I had spoken to. From my first telephone call with them, they gave me confidence that they were going to be able to help me and they did. The staff have all gone above and beyond to help me and I even call them now just to see how they are and to have a chat. I have never experienced this sort of customer service from a bank or building society. The whole mortgage team, underwriting team and all that were involved with my application deserve a medal for their help.
