Favourite Book

“Shantaram” (the autobiography of an escaped Australian convict turned Indian slum doctor)

I just wanted to say how happy we were with the service Keith provided when we were changing our mortgage earlier this year. Keith’s efforts were of the highest standard. He was extremely fast, helpful and professional in his approach. Things were getting tight because of interest rate deadlines and Keith really helped to get it over the line. This will save us a lot of money over the course of the 7 year fixed term. I would highly recommend PKHL to anyone considering moving house or remortgaging their home.
