We had a brilliant experience with doddl and would highly recommend their service to anyone seeking a mortgage in today’s market.

We first contacted doddl in early March 2023, and have now closed our sale and received the keys to our home by mid June 2023. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you to the entire doddl team!

doddl were amazing to deal with & I recommend their service to everyone. I found the Doddl dashboard easy to use and great to track / refer back to uploaded documents. Celly, Catherine, Elaine & Caitriona’s wealth of knowledge is exceptional.

Their helpfulness, professionalism and efficiency is first class. Only for Elaine in Completions, I would not have met the deadline for the lower rate. Thank you!

doddl were an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Our Fixed Term was due to expire next year so I contacted doddl to discuss our options. We ended up switching our mortgage. All the staff were incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and explained our options so clearly. The process was so quick and their online portal was so easy to use.

I can’t recommend doddl enough, they’re brilliant at what they do.

Caitriona helped us secure our mortgage protection when we were feeling like it was something that was not going to be achievable for us giving my previous medical history. She was so reassuring and worked so quickly with the underwriters to make sure we got the insurance in place.
