Pink Home Loans has introduced two new adverse rates, funded by Amber Homeloans, to its wide range of sub-prime products.

A full status rate of 5.95% and a self-cert rate of 6.45% are both fixeduntil 31/10/04.

Tony Jones, managing director at Pink Home Loans, says: “Pink is keen to be a leading figure in the sub-prime arena offering an extensive selection of sub-prime products funded by the top lenders in the field.”

Gordon Jolly, managing director of Amber Homeloans Limited, says: “Following the successful launch of the LIBOR Discount mortgages in April, we are pleased to be able to increase the discount offered on new applications, whilst at the same time reduce the rates on the two fixed rate products. This range of loans continues to provide brokers with an excellent opportunity to help clients who have had credit difficulties in the past.”

The product caters for those with arrears made up of 3 missed payments in the last year with only one missed in the last 6 months, and CCJs totalling no more than £10,000. It is accessed exclusively through Pink Home Loans via direct and packaged submission routes.

Pink Home Loans offers the facility of paying broker commission within 24 hours of legal completion if an express payment request form is completed and customers can also benefit from having broker commission paid directly into their bank account via BACS.
