Army Mortgages

Typically, soldiers in the British Army we successfully assist tell us of the difficulty they have experienced in trying to arrange the most competitive mortgage finance. They know that a number of lenders are unfamiliar with the remuneration, banding and military allowance structure of the profession particularly for those living and working on base or abroad. They advise us of the added complexities when they come to apply for finance from a BFPO address or have a number of previous addresses due to deployment.  Applying from outside the UK may have caused them added complications with credit agencies scoring the application low, due to effectively being treated as a UK expat during this time.

UK Army personnel requiring mortgages need to satisfy the mortgage lender that the loan is affordable, however, often soldiers may need to rely upon their employed income with an array of temporary and non-permanent allowances and their significant pay deductions often taken at source by the MOD. In many cases, actual income may be significantly higher than their net package and to consider net income alone becomes unfair.

“It was quite an easy decision to make….the run of the mill mortgage brokers really were not going to be able to help me on this one. I would recommend Capital Fortune to any one asking and I do so too.” J Crosby, London

Often the military staff  we help, express their frustration in finding an appropriate lender who fully understands their requirements or their occupation within the Army. They have usually undertaken their own detailed homework and are aware of the thousands of mortgages advertised nationally, the different comparison websites, direct lender deals and all the numerous brokers all stating they are best to help.

They usually have seen the wide array of products and rates, but are concerned by all the additional charges made by lenders, increasing the overall costs on any mortgage deal. They usually have undertaken their own analysis of products but may need a little assistance and are sometimes left unsure how to conclude their mortgage search.

Soldiers we help in similar situations, typically tell us of their annoyance at the range of different lending criteria and wish to understand whether they simply qualify for a specific deal. They just want the overall best mortgage but appreciate the risks in being declined by a lender. They usually have a healthy deposit for a purchase or significant equity to undertake a re-mortgage. They find it difficult to understand why many lenders may not consider their individual circumstances and they want to ensure when choosing a mortgage they get it absolutely right.

They may have spoken to a number of brokers without success, before making contact with us.

“Capital Fortune are a blessing...I feel like I’ve got the best rate on the market and a very personable and friendly service.” Reuben, London, SE27
