Before advisors can purchase an enquiry, they must provide within their “profile” account section; a.) their current FCA number, to confirm that they are approved and regulated to provide mortgage advice and b.) their ICO reference for data protection registration (www.ico.org.uk). Advisors accounts will not be unlocked until their information has been provided and checked for validity. If either the advisor’s FCA number or ICO reference changes, it is the advisor’s responsibility to update this information within their account. Your Local Advisor Limited reserves the right to check the ongoing validity of this information from time to time. If any information is found to be out of date, Your Local Advisor Limited reserves the right to lock the advisor’s account until valid FCA and/or ICO registration references have been provided by the advisor. Advisors are wholly responsible for the content that they create within their business profile, remain responsible for updating any required aspect of their profile and representing their business and services accurately at all times to their enquirers.
To operate an unlocked account on www.localadvisors.co.uk and to receive enquiries from our platform, advisors must provide a free initial consultation, which is provided without obligation for the enquirer to proceed with the advisor’s services. If applicable, advisors may charge a fee to enquirers who wish to proceed past the free initial consultation stage, for which the payment amount and full payment terms must be made clear to the enquirer prior to commitment.
Prior to approving and unlocking new advisor accounts on www.localadvisors.co.uk, we require receipt of the advisor (or advisor’s firm) consumer terms and conditions, including data protection policy. If consumer terms and conditions and/or data protection policy are updated in the future, it is the advisor’s responsibility to forward updated information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be assessed for ongoing suitability.
Your Local Advisor Limited will not directly contact any user who sends an enquiry via www.localadvisors.co.uk and does not provide regulated financial advice. Your Local Advisor Limited may only attempt to contact an enquirer if an advisor requests an enquiry replacement, to verify the validity of the replacement request.
Advisors accept the set functionality of the www.localadvisors.co.uk platform, as described within the documentation/guide section, which is accessible via the account dashboard.
Advisors who purchase one or more enquiries via the www.localadvisors.co.uk platform, either on the “auto assign” or “buy now” basis, accept that payment for enquiries is non-refundable. If an enquiry replacement is requested on the basis of one of the scenarios included within the set replacement policy, Your Local Advisor Limited reserves the right to make the final decision to either accept or reject the enquiry replacement request. Accepted enquiry replacement requests will add a credit to the advisor’s account equal to the payment made by the advisor to purchase the enquiry.
