Versatility - lending to people, by people


Versatility is our range of mortgages, where an application may need more of our individual underwriting expertise.

Our Versatility guide covers a number of different application types and within it you'll also find helpful information about our credit criteria.

Lending is available on a capital repayment and interest only basis up to age 85, including a maximum 70% LTV between age 70 and age 85, see the guide for full details.

Here's a summary of the key areas covered in the guide. The criteria shown below is available on selected products within the range, please see the guide for full details. 

You can download the Versatility guide from our product guides and downloads page.
