We’ve been celebrating after our product range scooped two industry awards, for ‘best buy-to-let product range’ and ‘best near-prime product range’ at the recent Loan Talk Second Charge Mortgage Awards.

The event is dedicated to the UK second charge mortgage market, recognising the best products and services in the industry, spanning lenders and mortgage brokers. 

Second charge mortgages, also known as secured loans, serve a wide variety of purposes for homeowners and property investors, and the buy-to-let and near-prime categories highlight two of our niche markets.

Commenting on the double win, Pete Ball, our chief executive of personal finance, said: “To win two awards that both acknowledge the high standard of our products is a great way to start the year. We continually improve and enhance our product range to make sure we’re delivering what customers want and I’m delighted that this has been recognised by our peers.

“The buy-to-let sector has faced many challenges recently; from the stamp duty increase on second homes last year to the impending changes to mortgage tax relief, and we’ve made many changes to our buy-to-let offering in response to this, so that we can help landlords and investors as they adapt. Our range also includes consumer buy-to-let products, designed for ‘accidental landlords’ such as those who have inherited a property.

“The award for ‘best near-prime product range’ acknowledges our position as a leading specialist lender, as this is focused on our products that are designed to help those who may not be able to get funding easily from a mainstream finance provider. We take a common sense approach to all our lending and that has very much shaped our criteria in this space.”
