Why Choose Us?

4 Apr 2019

At Family Building Society we can help your clients who have been turned down by other lenders simply because of their age or they don't tick all the 'normal' boxes.

So what makes us different?

  • We will listen to your client’s story. Each case is underwritten individually and assessed on its own merits.
  • Our common sense approach and flexible underwriting, means we are able to consider your client's unusual and complex cases.
  • We don’t credit score.
  • We have no set maximum loan amount.
