What makes specialists different to mainstream lenders?


At the Family Building Society they know that not every client is a straightforward case. Family Building Society look for reasons to offer mortgages, not for reasons to reject, so sometimes they can help when other lenders can’t or won’t because it’s just too complicated.

What makes them different to mainstream lenders?

No ‘computer says no’ underwriting – They’ll listen to your clients’ stories and their human underwriters make a common sense assessment based on the merits of each individual case.


No credit scoring – They offer tailored credit checks, taking a holistic view of your clients’ finances, not just assessing a predefined set of criteria.
No set maximum loan amount.


They lend to older clients – Unlike many mainstream lenders, they’ll offer mortgages to people approaching or in retirement.
Did you know they offer owner occupier repayment mortgages up to a maximum age of 95 at the end of the term?
