About us


Saffron For Intermediaries is Saffron Building Society’s dedicated intermediary lending channel.

If you are a broker, you will find information on this website about our products and services and the way in which you can submit business to us.

If you are a borrower seeking a mortgage, either visit the Saffron Building Society website, or consult a local mortgage adviser.

Mortgages for special situations

As a broker, you know better than anyone that not all clients are the same.

Some clients find themselves in situations which present quite a challenge when it comes to finding a mortgage. Although the borrower may be perfectly creditworthy, their circumstances and needs may make it very difficult to find a lender who’s able to help.

Our Special Situations range has been designed with just such borrowers in mind. It doesn’t matter if they’re landlords wanting to refurbish a rental property, or professionals seeking a higher LTV loan, or self-builders or borrowers wanting to repair a credit record. Saffron For Intermediaries is able to help.

And as you’ll see, we’ve designed our mortgages to have features even more special than you may expect: no early repayment charges on all products and the ability on selected products to have capital repayment to move to a lower rate.

A service you can rely on

Not only are our products special, but so is our service. We don’t credit score; every application is individually assessed by a skilled underwriter who takes into consideration your client’s individual circumstances, applies common sense and provides a personal and reliable service.

For those extra special situations

Although we have developed mortgage products designed to satisfy a broad range of special situations, we acknowledge that every now and again a client will come along who requires a more bespoke solution.

We therefore offer a bespoke mortgage service, in which we will assess your client’s individual requirements and will tailor a mortgage to fit. Criteria and rates will be determined on a case-by-case basis. For further information, please phone our broker helpline on 01799 582966.

Working in partnership with specialist distributors

All of our Special Situations and Everyday Situations mortgages are being made available to brokers via a panel of specialist distributors. Any enquiries about our products or submission procedures should, in the first instance, be made to one of our distribution partners.
