Residential Mortgages

We have two ranges of residential mortgages:

Special Situations

For borrowers with specific requirements such as the self-employed with just one years’ accounts, or contractors and professionals wanting higher LTV loans, or borrowers wanting to build or renovate a home of their own.

Everyday

For borrowers facing everyday situations such as buying a first home, moving to another home or remortgaging.

Whatever your clients’ needs and whatever mortgage they choose, they will also be guaranteed:

  • a decision made by a skilled and knowledgeable underwriter, rather than an automated credit scoring system
  • a fast and reliable service for which we were delighted to win the Moneyfacts ‘Best Service from a Mortgage Provider’ award in 2014

If your client is creditworthy but has been struggling to find a mortgage to suit their specific needs, we may be able to help.

And if one of our existing mortgages doesn’t quite fit because your client requires features from several of our products, then we may be able to tailor a mortgage to suit their precise needs.

Special Situations Mortgages Catering for borrowers with distinct needs

Self Employed

For those working on a self-employed basis, this mortgage is available for applicants with only 1 year’s accounts. It is also available to First Time Buyers who are self-employed.
