Buy For Uni Mortgage Lending Criteria and Information

Loan size

Size: Minimum £50,000 Maximum £300,000.
Term: Minimum 5 years, Maximum 40 years.


Minimum Value: £100,000. Must be in England or Wales and within a ten mile radius of the university attended.


Age: Minimum 18, no maximum, subject to income in retirement.

Rental Income

Combination of rent and parental income can be considered. Rent to cover interest at 125% of pay rate. Parental income can be used to cover any shortfall in rental cover.


The mortgage can be in the name of the parent and the student or the student on their own. Mortgages in the name of the student will require a guarantee from a parent. Evidence will be required of a university place. For loans greater than 80% loan to value, additional security will be required in the form of a collateral charge over the parental property. This means that your parents may find it more difficult to raise capital against the equity in their home and in the event of default their home may be at risk. Maximum total of charges over additional security must not exceed 70% of its value.
We will carry out a full assessment of your income and expenditure to ensure that you can afford your mortgage both now and in the future.
We take a flexible approach to underwriting and will consider each case on its merits. We do not credit score. The actual rate and APRC for your case will depend on your circumstances and our assessment of the risk.

Collateral Valuation:

If the collateral security is standard construction and is visible from the road, the Valuer will endeavour to carry out a drive-by valuation and this will be charged at £100. If the Valuer is unable or unwilling to carry out a drive-by valuation, or the property has a current valuation of >£500,000, we will require a standard mortgage valuation to be carried out and this will be at our usual scale fee based on the value of the property.

Tenancies must be on an assured shorthold or licence basis for no more than 12 months (renewable) and no more than 4 occupants in total.
