What makes a Kensington Mortgage, special
A specialist mortgage product from Kensington is different to ones you'll find on the high street. We don’t expect everyone to fit into standard boxes so we make our lending criteria more flexible to accommodate the different lives and circumstances we all have. We also use real people to assess your mortgage application and make our lending decisions so we don’t have to rely on what the computer says. Our mortgages can only be arranged through financial advisers and when they submit your application, we work hard to make the process as simple as we can.
Who our mortgages are for
Our mortgages could be for you if you have at least a 15% deposit and...
- You're self-employed - from a sole trader to a company director, or
- You're a Paramedic, Nurse, Teacher, Armed Forces Personnel (Army, Navy, RAF), Firefighter or Police Officer, or
- You're looking for a home loan of up to £850,000, or
- You have more than one income
If you've experienced past financial difficulties
Lots of people get into financial difficulties at some point in their lives which can often make it harder to get a mortgage. Our flexible lending criteria and use of real people to assess your application means that we may be able to help if you've had a Debt Management Plan that has been in place for at least 1 year, or a late credit card payment from more than 2 years ago.
