Halifax is the winner of this year’s Best Overall Mortgage Lender award at the 28th Your Mortgage Awards.

The lender has scooped the prize for the 16th year running, and was given the award this afternoon at a prestigious ceremony in London.

Widely regarded as the UK’s definitive consumer mortgage awards, the Your Mortgage Awards recognise and reward those lenders and providers that have offered the very best products and services to mortgage borrowers over the preceding 12 months.

Your Mortgage Editor-in-Chief, Paula John, said of Halifax’s win: “With some 150 years’ experience of creating mortgages to meet the needs of homebuyers, movers and remortgagors, it’s little wonder that so many choose the keen rates and flexible features from the household name they trust to help them buy a home.

“Halifax’s success doesn’t happen by accident. It’s the result of massive investment into technology to create processes and systems that lead the way, into training its staff to provide first-class service, and adapting its products and service after seeking feedback, listening carefully and monitoring the wider market.

“Well done on another great year.”
