Mortgage Strategy Online revealed that Scotland continued to see a subdued mortgage market in Q3, broadly mirroring the UK as a whole.
I’ve found selling mortgages in Scotland to be a terrible experience because like in the rest of the UK many people have a bad credit record, but lenders like Aldermore, Hanley Economic and Kensington that specialise in mortgages for such borrowers will not lend in Scotland.
Up to 60% of customers I saw in the last year had to be turned away because there are no options for them. That’s why I’ve left Scotland to go south where the conditions are more favourable for brokers.
