LendInvest Mortgages enhances criteria across full residential product suite

LendInvest Mortgages has made a host of improvements to the criteria for its residential mortgage suite.

LendInvest will now consider up to 100% of additional income, including income from a second job in an unrelated field, in affordability calculations.

Income from zero-hours contracts will also be accepted as guaranteed income, provided there is a two-year history of receiving this income. This change provides broader options for customers with variable work schedules.

Among the additional criteria changes, CIS contractors can now be treated as contractors rather than self-employed, title insurance is available on Scottish remortgage cases, and underwriters have more freedom to improve applicant credit tiers.

Paula Mercer, head of sales at LendInvest, said: “With today’s enhancements to our Residential Mortgage suite, we are actively transforming our offerings to cater to those often overlooked by traditional lenders. 

“Our expanded criteria for income consideration are designed to facilitate access to mortgages for a broader range of customers, particularly those who find their complex financial situations a barrier with high street lenders.

“LendInvest is committed to being the reliable alternative, providing flexible and inclusive mortgage solutions tailored to the diverse needs of modern homeowners.”
