An In-Depth Look at Specialist Mortgage Scenarios

When you come across a particularly difficult mortgage obstacle, you may find it a tricky task alone to match up to any mortgage lender criteria. It’s at this point where you should consider getting Mortgage Advice in Cambridge. We will be able to take a look at your case, working together step by step to find a mortgage solution for you.


Complex scenarios are a common scenario for us here at Cambridgemoneyman, so whilst everyone’s situation is unique to them, it is likely that we have come across something very similar in the past. We will use the knowledge we have gathered from these instances, to better advise you during your process.


Below we have put together a list of the most common scenarios we encounter for specialist mortgages in Cambridge:

Property Down Valuation

When it comes to making an offer on a property, in some cases you may end up with what you personally feel is a good deal, even if it is above the asking price. Unfortunately, after you have had a property survey carried out, you may discover that the property is worth less than the offer you had made.


This type of practice is called a property down valuation. In this instance, your lender is very unlikely to lend you the full amount, as they would be lending you more than the property could actually resell for in the event of repossession. Sometimes, the lender will pull out of the deal altogether.


If you are able to make up the shortfall, either by utilising your savings or coming to an agreement between yourself and the seller, you may be in with a chance of continuing your process with the lender in question. This isn’t always a guaranteed outcome, however, and they may still pull out anyway.

Divorce & Separation Mortgage Advice

If, for some unfortunate reason, you end up divorced or separated, it can be quite a challenge sorting out any joint finances you have, especially your mortgage. It’s very important that this is sorted out sooner rather than later, to avoid any additional difficulties.


Whether you want your name removed, or your partners name removed from the mortgage, you will need to speak with a specialist mortgage advisor in Cambridge in order to proceed.

Remove a Name From a Mortgage

Following on from a divorce or separation, it’s very likely that one of you will be wanting the others name off the original mortgage.


Names can only be removed from a mortgage, if either party can financially cope without the assistance of another. What this means, is that if you wanted your ex’s name removed from your mortgage, but you cannot afford to do so alone, the lender may decline to remove your ex from the mortgage. Speaking to a specialist mortgage advisor in Cambridge will give you more insight into this scenario.

Single Name Mortgages for Married Applicants

You will find that it is possible to obtain a mortgage on a property with a sole name if you are married, though the majority of lenders would much prefer that a joint mortgage be taken out if possible. This is due to the security for the lender, as two incomes is better than one.


Whilst applying for a mortgage in a joint name would make the likelihood of being accepted much easier, it is not completely impossible and there are still lenders who are willing to work with sole name married applicants.

Shared Ownership

The Shared Ownership Scheme will allow mortgage applicants who are struggling to afford the full property price, to purchase a share in a property, paying back the remaining percentage to a local authority in monthly rental payments.


Generally speaking, you will have to purchase somewhere between 25-75%, though depending on the lender and the circumstances, you may be able to purchase lower than this amount. If you come into more income further into your mortgage term, you may have the option to increase your shares by purchasing them from the local authority who owns them.

Professional Mortgages

Professional mortgages are restricted to only being used by specific professions across the country. This is a hyper specialist area of the mortgage world and would require speaking with a mortgage expert before proceeding.

Second Home Mortgages

If you are considering buying an additional property and require a mortgage in order to cover the costs of that purchase, you will need to show a mortgage lender that you have the ability of affording multiple monthly mortgage payments consecutively.


This needs to be proven via evidential documents, such as your bank statements, P60 and payslips. If you’re self-employed, you will need your self-assessment, tax calculations and tax overview to prove this. A trusted member of our mortgage advice team will be able to help make sure that you are prepared for this.

Holiday Home/Let Mortgages

Holiday let mortgages function in a way that is similar to Buy to Let mortgages. The difference between the two though, is that a holiday home will not generate a consistent income with long term tenants. Instead, you will be taking on multiple short term tenancies as a source of income from your properties.


During off-peak holiday times, you may see that you are unable to maintain much income at all from this property. Because of this, the lender will need to have complete confidence in your ability to maintain your monthly mortgage payments, even when there are no tenants living in the property.

New Build Mortgages

New builds can often be quite costly investments, especially because the demand for these types of properties has increased over the years!


If you are finding it difficult to save up the deposit to buy a home, there is a varied selection of government schemes to choose from, each serving the purpose of helping first time buyers secure a new build property. Some of the schemes available include the Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme, a Lifetime ISA or the Shared Ownership Scheme, to name but a few.

Non-Standard Construction Property Mortgages

A ‘non-standard’ property would be defined as a property that has not been conventionally built, i.e., with bricks or mortar.


If you have any plans to take out a mortgage on a property that is considered ‘non-standard’, then you will need to look at finding a specialist deal. We would also highly suggest paying a little bit more in order to get a full structural property survey carried out on the property in question, as this will identify any faults.

Multiple Applicant/House of Multiple Occupation Mortgages

HMO’s are another variation of a Buy to Let property. Having a HMO property allows you to have between 4-6 tenants in a property, similar to what you would see with student housing.


Before you obtain a HMO mortgage, you may have to speak to your local council, so that you can obtain a HMO license. This will only apply if there are 5 or more unrelated applicants living inside the property or if you have 2 or more separate households living under one roof.


We would recommend that you look at obtaining specialist Buy to Let Mortgage Advice in Cambridge if you are considering taking out a HMO mortgages.

Mortgages Past Retirement Date/Lifetime Mortgages

A Lifetime Mortgage will give you the option to release equity from your home as a means of creating a lump sum of cash. This type of mortgage is only accessible to those over the age of 55.


We would strongly recommend that you get in touch with a mortgage specialist before making any hasty decisions with equity release, as this can be complex to navigate if you’re not too sure what you’re doing.

Offset Mortgages

Offset mortgages allow customers to utilise a savings account alongside your mortgage. These can be super helpful in obtaining competitive interest rates and mortgage products.

Lastly, with your Agreement in Principle, submitted evidential documentation and a comprehensive mortgage offer that you’re happy to continue with, you can move onto the last stage – mortgage application submission!

The time scale can alter depending on the Lender but on average, an Agreement in Principle will likely last around 30-90 days.

Yes, the good news is it is possible to obtain a mortgage as a self-employed worker depending on circumstances. First. You need to produce at least one year’s accounts.

To work out the maximum mortgage amount you can borrow, Lenders will use your salary + divided, whereas others might go off your net profit.

Whether you’re applying for a mortgage or looking to remortgage, there are a few documents lenders will always want to see during the process. You will get asked to provide some evidential documents to back up your mortgage application. For example, you’ll need things like ID, bank statements, payslips.

Once your consultation gets concluded, we will try to turn around an Agreement in Principle within 24-hours. An Agreement in Principle is essential when making an offer on a property, as estate agents and sellers often accept those who already have an AIP than those who haven’t.

The final step is to submit your mortgage application and wait for a formal mortgage offer. Usually, this will take about 2 -4 weeks – provided the process goes smoothly, and your application is relatively straightforward.

Our Mortgage Advisors in Cambridge job is to gather personal, financial and financial mortgage situation information from you during your free mortgage consultation because they need to build an in-depth understanding of your mortgage needs to try and find you the most suitable mortgage.

We recommend you get an Agreement in principle before viewing any houses in Cambridge. Doing so may increase your chance of your offer getting accepted and will put yourself in front of other buyers who don’t have an Agreement in Principle in place.

The deposit all depends on certain factors. For example, depending on your credit history and the lender you are using, they might only require a 5% deposit of the property price.

Other factors come into play, such as if you fall into the lower credit score bracket, you may expect to put down a 10-15% deposit.
