Estate agency franchiser links up with mortgage giants


Property franchiser The Property Franchise Group has launched a financial services arm in partnership with Legal & General and London & Country.

TPFG trades under the names Martin & Co, Whitegates, CJ Hole, Parkers and Ellis & Co and has 287 offices nationwide. Both L&G and L&C will offer whole of market advice to TPFG customers.

TPFG chief executive Ian Wilson says: “We are delighted to have entered into a partnership with London & Country and we can now offer our clients an efficient financial services solution anywhere in the UK. We chose telephone and web fulfillment because people are busy and do not find it convenient to attend long meetings with mortgage advisers.

“Once you are a customer you can track the progress of your case on-line. You know the mortgage is the best in the market for your needs and you will pay no fee for the advice”.

L&C managing director Phillip Cartwright says: “Our partnership with The Property Franchise Group is mutually beneficial and we are delighted to be associated with the UK’s largest property franchiser. They have one of the biggest client bases in the sector and we are looking forward to helping their customers take advantage of our award winning, fee free service.”
