About Us

Family First Finance was established by Edward Payne in 2018 having identified the growing need for advice in this sector and the growth of available products.

With over 25 years of experience in financial services, much of it running key relationships for well-known brands such as Halifax, Post Office Mortgages, Yorkshire Building Society and Friends Life he has used his broad experience to build an advisory firm that offers holistic mortgage advice to customers aged 50 plus. 

Since then the business has grown and expanded, additional advisers have joined the company but Edward still takes a hands-on approach in speaking to clients whilst running the business.

Family First Finance arranges and advises on standard mortgages, retirement interest only, term interest only and equity release. Unlike many firms we will never make assumptions about our clients and we will never push you towards a product you don’t want if other products are available.

Another thing that sets the firm apart is its pricing structure. All initial consultations are free and even if you do apply for a mortgage we will not charge a fee until you have completed. Also, unlike many other firms in this sector we do not charge percentage fees – We will only ever charge a flat fee regardless of the loan size.

That fee will either be £395 if you take out a standard repayment mortgage or £795 if you take out a later life, retirement, interest only or equity release mortgage. If you don’t want to continue you can walk away at any time before completion with no charge from ourselves.
