We take a different approach to lending

16 Aug 2018

At the Family Building Society, we do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to lending. We will work with you and listen to your client's story, and if we can help find a mortgage solution, we will.

So why choose us?

  • Speak to a person, not a computer: we don't rely on a computer to make our lending decisions, we use our ears!
  • Common sense approach: we underwrite mortgages individually and don't credit score.
  • Flexibility: we will consider unusual and complex cases. We deal with 'grey' not black and white.
  • Specialist lending and innovative product range: we lend to first time buyers, landlords, the self-employed, expats, and those in or nearing retirement.
  • Dedicated team: our Business Development Managers are on hand to offer advice and support and can work with you to find solutions for your clients' borrowing needs.

Award nomination

Our approach to lending has resulted in us being nominated in the ‘Mortgage Provider of the Year’ category at the MoneyAge awards 2018. The shortlist can be viewed here.

Winners will be announced on 18 October 2018. Watch this space!

If you have any questions or have a case you would like to discuss, please contact your local Business Development Manager or our Mortgage Desk.
