As a broker, you know that every mortgage placement presents a different set of challenges. If you have clients who are self-employed, have poor credit or work in an industry where proving their income is tricky, you may find it tough placing their mortgage with the bigger providers. 

As a specialist mortgage provider, we offer flexible, reliable mortgage solutions designed to meet the unique needs of your clients and your business. To help you tackle cases quickly and effectively, we’ve created a range of guides and videos packed with specialist insight and expert advice.

How to spot hard-to-place cases

Providing your clients with the best solutions means understanding the problems they face. 
Here are a few of the common complications you may encounter when tackling a case:

  • Large loans

    High value residential and Buy to Let mortgages can be problematic to place. We have the expertise to provide more flexible solutions than the bigger suppliers.
  • Buy to let and rental coverage

    Flexibility is key for clients that rely on rent as part of their income. As a specialist lender we understand the complexities of the rental market.
  • Providing proof of income

    There are many professions where evidencing your income can be complicated. We can help you provide the right evidence to ensure your client’s placement is successful.
  • Adverse credit

    Credit blips are one of the most common demons faced by clients. You need to ensure that you get the full facts before talking to a lender to help avoid any nasty surprises later down the line.
  • Supporting Expats

    Expat clients present a unique set of problems for mortgage brokers. We can help you understand the documentation you need to provide to make a successful case.
