I had an offer accepted on a holiday let in Scotland but was struggling to find a lender. I approached Pinnacle and they expertly found a mortgage solution that worked perfectly for me.



As a professional based in Dubai, I needed a specialist broker who could review my property portfolio. The results exceeded my expectations, and I would certainly recommend Pinnacle.



As Portuguese & French nationals residing in the UK, we were seeking a mortgage. We are both contracting, but none of this fazed our broker and they found us a mortgage that is perfect for us.
