An In-Depth Look at Specialist Mortgage Scenarios

When you are faced with a tricky mortgage situation and you are struggling to find products that you are able to match, it may be time to consider getting Mortgage Advice in Cardiff. We can go through your situation in step by step and try to work out a solution together.


It’s not unusual for us to encounter different, complex scenarios, however, most of the time we have already dealt with a similar situation before and are able to help. Here are some of the most common mortgage scenarios that we come across:

Property Down Valuation

When you make an offer on a property, you will need to take out a mortgage to cover the full costs of the sale. After a property survey is carried out, in some cases the results can show that the value of the property is not worth as much as your offer. This could be down to interior/exterior damages, other similar properties being valued lower or something else that the survey results will show.


This is called a property down valuation. The lender will see that the property is worth less than you originally offered and will not want to let you borrow as much as you want to. The lender could even pull out of the deal completely.


If you can make up the difference with your own savings or can come up with an agreement between you and the seller that’s great, however, sometimes the seller won’t budge their offer and you may have to move on.

Divorce & Separation Mortgage Advice

If your relationship unfortunately starts to break down and you divorce or separate, sorting out any joint finances, like your mortgage, can be quite difficult to work with. You need to make sure you get this sorted as soon as possible, as the longer you leave it, the more challenging it will be.


When going through a divorce or separation whilst living with your partner, things can get complicated. All of your joint finances, like your mortgage, will need sorting out. This should be done sooner rather than later.


Whether it’s you or your partner looking to get a new mortgage, we may be able to help form an agreement between both parties.

Remove a Name From a Mortgage

Following a divorce or separation, it’s most likely that someone is going to want to remove their name from the original mortgage. This could be you or your ex.


You can only remove a name if both parties are financially stable without one another. For example, if you want to remove your name from the mortgage but your ex cannot afford to meet the payments on their own, you may struggle to get your name removed right away, and vice versa.

Single Name Mortgages for Married Applicants

It is possible to achieve a sole name mortgage on a property, however, lenders would much prefer you to take out a joint mortgage under one roof. Applying for a joint mortgage would also make your ability to get accepted much easier.

Shared Ownership

The Shared Ownership scheme allows applicants to purchase a share in a property and then pay the remainder back through rent. The percentage share that you have to purchase has to be between 25%-75%, but in some cases, you can purchase as little as 10%.


The remaining share is likely to be owned by the local authority. In the future, you may get the option to purchase the rest of the property or just increase your percentage share.

Professional Mortgages

Professional mortgages are limited to certain professions across the country. This area of the market is very niche, therefore, we would recommend getting in touch with a specialist like ourselves to learn more about this.

Second Home Mortgages

If you are thinking of purchasing a second property and need to take out a mortgage with it, you will first have to demonstrate your ability to afford two sets of mortgage repayments.


You will need to prove this through evidential documents; this will be your bank statements, P60 and payslips. We can help you prepare for this.

Holiday Home/Let Mortgages

Holiday let mortgages work similarly to Buy to Let mortgages, however, a holiday home will not generate regular income with long term tenants. Your income will generate in short periods and for the rest of the time, you will have to compensate for the repayments on your own.


During off-peak holiday times, you may see your holiday let income deplete. This is why the lender has to be certain that you can afford two sets of income before granting you a mortgage on the property.

New Build Mortgages

New builds can often come with high costs, especially because of the high demand for property in recent years.


If you’re struggling to save up for a deposit, there are various government schemes made for helping new buyers secure new build properties. You could utilise the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme, Lifetime ISA or the Shared Ownership scheme.

Non-Standard Construction Property Mortgages

A ‘non-standard’ property is a property that has not been built in a conventional way, i.e., with bricks or mortar.


If you are planning to take out a mortgage on a ‘non-standard’ property, then you will need to search for a specialist deal. We would also recommend paying that bit extra to get a full structural property survey carried out on the property just in case there is something wrong with it.

Multiple Applicant/House of Multiple Occupation Mortgages

HMO mortgages are a type of Buy to Let. This type of mortgage allows you to have between 4-6 tenants in a property, similar to student housing.


Before obtaining a HMO mortgage, you may have to converse with the council to obtain a HMO license. This is only the case when there are 5 or more unrelated applicants living inside the property or there are 2 or more separate households living inside the property.


We would suggest seeking specialist Buy to Let Mortgage Advice in Cardiff if you are interested in HMO mortgages.

Mortgages Past Retirement Date/Lifetime Mortgages

A Lifetime Mortgage allows you to release equity within your home to create a lump sum of cash. You will have to be over the age of 55 to access this mortgage type.


It’s strongly recommended that you speak with a mortgage specialist before rushing into equity release, it can get complicated very quickly if you don’t quite know what you are doing.

Offset Mortgages

Offset mortgages allow you to run a savings account parallel with your mortgage. It can be a really useful way to help you access competitive interest rates and mortgage products.

Your free initial mortgage consultation will last around 30-60 minutes. During your consultation, you will get to speak with your dedicated Mortgage Advisor in Cardiff. Their job will be to get a better understanding of your mortgage needs and situation so that they can search for the perfect mortgage deal for your personal and financial situation.

Typically, most High Street Lenders will require a 5% deposit from you. However, depending on your credit history, your lender may ask for 10%-15%.

It can still be possible to get a mortgage, even with bad credit problems in the past. Even though it may be a little harder, it isn’t impossible!

You may have to put down a higher deposit if you have bad credit, this could be 10%-15%.

If you’ve found yoru dream home, and are happy with our mortgage recommendation, we can start the mortgage application process! A formal mortgage offer can take longer than 3 weeks, during which, we will keep you informed with the progress of your application.

As a Mortgage Broker in Cardiff, we recommend that our applicants obtain an Agreement in Principle (AIP) as soon as possible. Having an AIP whilst you’re viewing properties can increase your chances of being accepted by the seller. It may also allow an opportunity for price negotiation.

Once you have an Agreement in Principle (AIP) in place, it should last between 30-90 days. If your AIP expires, you can easily renew it by getting back in touch with your Mortgage Advisor in Cardiff.

First of all, your free mortgage consultation should last around 30-60 minutes. Once this is complete, your Mortgage Advisor in Cardiff will obtain an Agreement in Principle for you within 24-hours. Then, if you are happy to proceed with the deal that your advisor has recommended, we can submit your mortgage application. A formal mortgage offer can take on average around 3 weeks to return.

During your mortgage application, you’ll be asked to provide evidencing documents:

– Latest 3 Payslips (Employed), Last 2 years’ Accounts (Self-Employed)
– Latest 3 Months’ Bank Statements
– Latest P60
– Photographic ID

During your mortgage application in Cardiff, if you’re Self-Employed, you’ll need to submit at least one year’s accounts. As a Mortgage Broker in Cardiff, we’ve found that most lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount that you can borrow. Although, some lenders may choose to go off your net profit.

Depending on why you want to get a second mortgage, it may be easier to get one than not.

There are various reasons why someone may want a second mortgage, for example:

– Buy to Let
– Debt Consolidation
– Home Improvements
– Second Home
– Marital / Relationship Breakdown
