Which Mortgage Provider Did You Choose?

Obtaining a Mortgage for any Non-Traditional property can sometimes be challenging.

Fortunately, obtaining a Mortgage for a BISF House is generally straightforward, providing that the buyer approaches a provider who offers mortgages for this type of property, because not all lenders do.

For those of us who have managed to secure our mortgages, we probably don’t give this matter a second thought. But spare a moment for the thousands of homeowners every year who are facing the dilemma of which company to choose.

My mortgage provider was Santander and I never had any issues whatsoever in securing and maintaining my mortgage with them, well, apart from a minor disagreement with my surveyor, who wrongly classified my house under a different build type that just happened to be defective under the housing act but, I managed to sort this misidentification out fairly quickly and my mortgage went through fine.

I hope that by sharing our own experiences, we can help new buyers to make the right choice first time in selecting a good provider.

So, my question to you would be, which mortgage provider did you choose and did your sale go through smoothly?

I look forward to your replies.
