    soon as it's conveniently possible...

  • How do I prepare to buy my first house?

    Getting ready to buy your first house can be daunting. Credit scores, deposit, and mortgages are all on your mind. 

    Here are the 3 steps...

  • Can I protect my income in the event of a accident or sickness

    If something happened to you would you be able to survive on savings, or on sick pay from work?

    If not, you'll need some other way...

The team at Custodia are absolutely brilliant, thoroughly professional in what they do from start to finish. I was fortunate to be introduced and can’t thank them enough for the service they provided in getting the mortgage approved within the allocated time. They kept us informed every step of the way and communicated effectively if they needed to submit more information to the lender. 5 star service from a 5 star team.

I needed some help with a mortgage for my home. Viral guided me through the process along with simple forms. After he evaluated the same and my needs he compared the market and suggested the best deal for me. He organised the whole application process and the whole job was made very simple and efficient with regular follow up by him in the background. I would definitely recommend any of their services as they take the time to understand your needs and throughout the process they make sure you understand the pros and cons of the decisions you are making. I would always want him and Custodia by my side for any financial service and I have no hesitation in recommending him or his firm.

I highly recommend working with Custodia Financial Services. I instructed Viral Patel to help me and my husband remortgage as we were having trouble finding a mortgage adviser able or willing to help as our situation is quite complex. We were extremely lucky to be put into contact with him. Viral Patel and Laura Jones are highly professional, responsive, helpful in so many ways, honest and trustworthy. They are a delight to work with. I will definitely work with them again. Thank you.

I am a first-time buyer and chose to work with Viral Patel from Custodia Financial Services after a glowing recommendation from my parents. From our initial consultation phone call to moving forward with my mortgage application, Viral has been incredibly responsive, knowledgable and fast-moving. He has always been available to provide clarification or answer any questions, and has clearly had my best interests in mind with every step of the mortgage application process. I will forever be grateful to him and his colleague Laura Jones for streamlining what can be a lengthy and complicated experience. Would recommend!

I had a great experience with Custodia planning. Viral handled the case extremely well and got us the best deal for our needs. There were some specific needs in our case, Viral took everything into consideration and helped us choose the bank that would be more acommodating and had the best rate. They have already handled 2 cases for us and will certainly reach out to them again if needed.
