Remortgage to Kensington
Welcome to one of the UK’s leading specialist residential mortgage lenders
When you’re looking to remortgage, it makes sense to consider Kensington. For the last 25 years, we’ve been creating specialist mortgages tailored to meet individual needs and circumstances, so you don’t have to worry about having to fit into the one-size-fits-all box of traditional mortgage lenders.
A specialist approach to mortgages
As one of the UK’s leading specialist residential mortgage lenders, our approach to mortgages is deliberately different. For a start, our lending criteria are designed to be flexible so we can take account of the different circumstances people have. And because we use real people to make our decisions rather than relying on machines, we can offer mortgages to people who don’t fit the standard application criteria of the high street lenders.
Who our mortgages are for
Our mortgages, which can only be arranged through mortgage advisers, might be for you if your circumstances mean you need something different. For example, you could be self-employed or a contractor with multiple incomes. Or you may own a limited company, or be one of life’s heroes such as a Policeman, Teacher or Nurse.
If you’ve experienced some past financial difficulties, we may still be able to help you. For example, if you’ve been on a debt management plan that’s up to date and been in place for more than a year, or if you had a late credit card payment more than 2 years ago.
The little extras when you remortgage with Kensington

Frequently asked questions
What is remortgaging?
Remortgaging is the process of repaying one mortgage by taking out another one secured on the same property. You may consider this to get a lower rate or to borrow more money to cover home improvements for example.
How much equity do I need in my property?
Equity is the difference between the value of your home and the size of your mortgage. We can offer mortgages where you have at least 20% equity in your property. If your property is worth £200,000 and you have a £120,000 mortgage, your equity is £80,000 or 40%.
Can I remortgage if I have less than perfect credit?
We can consider your application, even if you have a few blips on your credit file. Speak to your mortgage adviser who will be able to advise you.
Are there any upfront fees to pay?
There are no upfront fees to pay when you submit your application to us. Depending on the mortgage that your adviser recommends, there may be a valuation and/or a completion fee.
