What are Specialist Mortgages?

A specialist mortgage is a solution your clients can get when they do not fit a high street lenders criteria. In other words, it enables your clients in complex circumstances to get the financial solutions they need to achieve their goals.

Types of Specialist Mortgages

Our team can support clients who want to purchase or re-mortgage.

We can primarily help with clients who have been declined by high street lenders due to:

  • Adverse credit / low credit score - including CCJs, defaults, missed payments on credit and mortgages;
  • Indebtedness or affordability;
  • Income types – Variable pay elements, multiple income sources, day rate workers, <2 years self-employed;
  • Maximum borrowing age;
  • Income proof

On any purchase or re-mortgage cases, our team will complete the fact find, sourcing, advice and packaging, allowing you to focus on your core business.

Remortgage Property Types

Some clients may struggle to find a re-mortgage product with a high street lender, due to the type of property they own.

Our team can help your clients, even if they have a non-standard property type or construction. We have a variety of products that can assist with the following:

  • Unencumbered;
  • Consumer Buy to Let;
  • Residential

Bad Credit Mortgages

Many of your clients may have difficulties purchasing or re-mortgaging with a high street lender, due to a bad, poor or adverse credit history.

Luckily, we have products available that are specifically designed to assist these types’ of clients. So, if you have clients who need help with a bad credit mortgage, we may have the solution. Areas that we can help with include:

Late or missed payments - Having late or missed payments on loans, credit cards or other bills can bring challenges for your clients. However, we have products available that can help clients in this exact situation, allowing them to secure the finance they need to undertake their plans.

Mortgages with a CCJ –Another factor that can really impact a client’s credit profile is if they have any CCJs, particularly if these have not been settled. Getting a mortgage with a CCJ is not always easy, as many lenders may not accept applications from these types of clients at all. But, we have some lenders who will, meaning that your clients may get the solutions they need, despite their credit background.

Mortgages with a default–Similarly, defaults can also affect your client’s credit profile and hinder your ability to find a suitable mortgage product with a high street lender. As specialists in the market, we have solutions that may allow your clients to get a mortgage with a default, provided it did not occur in the last 12 months.

We assess every client on a case by case basis and will do everything possible to find them the right solution, regardless of their credit background.
