CaptureNorth East commercial and residential property specialist Bradley Hall is expanding its range of services by moving into financial services.

BH Financial Services Ltd has been established to provide a comprehensive range of independent finance advice. This service is approved and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Services will range from advice on commercial mortgages, commercial loans, to business finance, and motor finance for business and private use along both vehicle sourcing and disposal.

Heading the new business is James Hill, a financial specialist with more than 20 years’ industry experience.

James said: “Finance advice is a minefield for most people. Experience has shown there is a huge demand from business people and the wider public for an independent, professional broker who can provide a competitive and reliable service.

“We have access to an unrivalled panel of funders providing very competitive rates and a full range of products.”

Neil Hart, managing director of Bradley Hall and BH Group companies, said: “Financial services have become an obvious extension for us. We have worked with James for more than 10 years and have been recommending him to various people.

“Many of our clients want a one-stop-shop service. With so many people asking for finance advice, whether for vehicles, property or plant and equipment, it makes complete sense to bring a trusted supplier into the business and offer a full package to Bradley Hall clients.”

BH Financial Services will be based within Bradley Hall’s Grey street office in Newcastle but finance advice will be offered through the firm’s growing network of estate agent offices – in Gosforth, Durham City, Alnwick and soon Morpeth.
