Mortgage Payment Holidays

Posted By :
Comments : Off

This is an arrangement between UK Finance on behalf of members and the Government. UK Finance is the trade body that represents high street lenders. If you would like to know who they represent click here. Anyone can ask their lender for the payment holiday as a result of hardship in the current economic climate and they should all agree. There is no specific evidence required as it is a holiday (forebearance) and not three months free and we are told as it is agreed, there will be no credit report or credit score impacts but that will be system dependent for many. Lenders may just add three extra payments to end of loan, but there are currently discussions happening around how this will work due to capital requirements. There is nothing specific for landlords yet but there is an assumptions landlords (BTL Loans) may be afforded similar “privileges” in due course.

    Whilst MortgageAbility does not charge for mortgage advice, please note that there will be an administration fee for arranging mortgages. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances but we estimate it will be £395, payable on completion. MortgageAbility gives you the option to pay a non-refundable fee of 1% of the mortgage loan payable with the application. If this option is taken, MortgageAbility will refund any commission received from the lender.
