We can often help when others won’t
We understand that real lives rarely fit conveniently into tickboxes so we look at every application on its merits, and use our common sense.
It’s an approach we’ve been applying for almost 50 years. In that time, we’ve helped hundreds of people buy their council homes so they can create a future for their families, and make happy memories for years to come. See our step by step Right to Buy guide here.
Common senseYou're more than a credit score. If the sums show that you can afford the property, we do our best to make it happen.
TrustedWith almost 50 years of lending experience under our belts, you can trust us to get things right for you.
Open-mindedUnlike many, we lend on properties like ex-council properties, high-rise flats and those made of non-standard materials.

Common questions about personal mortgages
Why choose a Together personal mortgage?
We're a specialist lender. We exist to help people who would likely be turned down by mainstream lenders. Perhaps it's your employment status, your credit history, or the property itself that doesn't fit neatly into the big names' tickboxes.
Whatever it is, we'll look at your application and use our common sense – not computers – to make the final decision about whether we can lend to you.
How long does it take to arrange a mortgage?
It typically takes several weeks to arrange a mortgage.
As a responsible lender, we're duty bound to ensure you can afford the loan you're applying for. So we may take longer to underwrite your case, or request more documentation.
What documents do I need to apply?
You'll need to provide proof of ID, proof of your address history, and proof of income. Exactly what documents we'll accept as proof will depend on your individual circumstances, so we can tell you over the phone.
What fees will I have to pay?
We charge an Arrangement Fee, and we charge a Redemption Administration Fee when you 'redeem' (i.e. full repay) your mortgage, to cover costs associated with closing your account and dispensing our legal claim to your property.
These fees can vary, so we'll ensure that the fees that apply to your particular mortgage are clearly explained before you sign on the dotted line.
Other fees and charges may be applied to your account during the life of your loan, in relation to the management of your account (for instance, if you fall behind on your monthly payments). These are all explained in our Tariff of Charges.
