Coronavirus - Help us to help you.

We have temporarily reduced our opening hours.  From Monday 8 June our Principal Office will be open Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm and closed on Saturdays. Please be patient with us while we work hard to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on our services. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Due to unprecedented demand we are extremely busy at the moment and our service levels may be longer than normal.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Maximum Age

23/08/2017
  • At least one borrower must be no more than 80 at the end of the mortgage term for residential mortgages. For joint mortgages, the maximum age 80 applies to the youngest borrower. In addition to the checks on income into retirement there is also a requirement for the mortgage to be affordable based only on the younger borrower’s income.
  • The maximum age for family buy to let mortgages is 80.
  • There is no maximum age for standard buy to let mortgages.
  • There is no maximum age for RIO mortgages
  • Where the term of a mortgage would go beyond an applicant’s intended retirement age, or state pensionable age, if earlier, independent documentation is required to demonstrate that the mortgage will remain affordable in retirement. Where the applicant has indicated that their intended retirement age is beyond state pensionable age, we will assess whether this is feasible, given the nature of the job being performed
