I just completed my house purchase!
I joined StepLadder about 6 months ago and was drawn this month, 7 days before completion on my property purchase. This couldn’t have been a better time. I had a few hiccups with my solicitor, but the team at StepLadder stepped in and helped to get me out of a pickle. I have just completed the purchase.
Excellent community and support!
Excellent community and support from all team members, joining Stepladder allowed me to take the first steps towards acquiring my first property. This is exactly the help needed by first-time buyers like myself.
This is my first time using stepladder and what can I say, it is super easy to use, great customer service and it does what it says on the tin. I joined the £10,000 circle and it's a great way of obtaining money for a house deposit quicker than saving up.
A reliable organisation, compassionate and caring
Where do I start? Honestly, StepLadder, I am writing this review with strong emotions. I was scared to start with in joining StepLadder. Then decided to join with 25 pounds a month and l took 2 Circles. I got paid when I don't even remember that am saving somewhere.
That was my first attempt to save some money for buying a property. Stepladder showed the way. Thanks to Stepladder.
