Help to buy equity loan Mortgage

Hi - our broker was originally going to use Nationwide, but they have delays at the moment so we applied to Halifax. Halifax are now saying that they might be over exposed on this particular development so they might not lend. We will know for sure next week,

So, after Nationwide and Halifax, who would normally be next choice at the moment?

Just wondering so I can do a bit of research.

Thanks!

    Why are you trying to do your broker's job for them?

  • OK sorry, just being impatient as nothing can be done until next week.

    I will wait.

    Who are Aldermore? I don't really recognise them?

  • Thanks - I had looked at their website but wasn't sure if they are just a regular high street lender or not. Just smaller than the others maybe that's why I hadn't heard of them.

    I've heard Aldermore are a very good lender
  • Thank you - I was just interested as I hadn't heard of them before. Good to hear they are a good lender as our broker may have to come up with an alternative for us next week.
  • My experience with Aldermore has always been positive.

    In my opinion they are a bit more open to discussing a case for its merits rather than letting a computer decide.

    Good luck with your application.

  • That sounds good. I don't know if our broker will suggest them but they might.

    So far we decided against Nationwide as they have a delay at the moment.

    Then Halifax we passed everything with Halifax, and valuation was about to take place when they decided they may be over exposed on the development that we like so we might not be able to use them.

    We'll see what happens next week but it's good to have an idea of each of the lenders.

    Thanks!

    Santander to a large number of these mortgages, may be worth looking at them, or Natwest
  • Thanks Octaben that's good to know.

    I think there is still a chance with Halifax, apparently Broker should know this week, but I'm just trying to be prepared in case he comes back with other options.

    I thought we were all sorted on the mortgage front, so I'm a bit upset we might be back to square one.
