Harpenden launches range of JBSP mortgages

Harpenden Building Society has launched a range of Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor (JBSP) mortgages with 10 product variations.

The product is available for up to four borrowers (direct family members only) at up to 80% loan-to-value (LTV) with a max loan size of £1,000,000. Interest only is considered.

Craig Middleton Harpenden’s mortgage sales manager commented: “The lending environment is changing rapidly.

“Our new JBSP products provide a great new option allowing families to pool resources and support one another so the most appropriate property can be purchased for their requirements.

“Our policy of lending to people in varied types of employment and with different income sources has kept pace in these quickly evolving times too. We lend to people who are employed, self-employed and retired. We pride ourselves on being flexible and accommodating to the changing nature of income.

“As with our full mortgage range, the JBSP products are manually underwritten, allowing us to review applications in greater detail, taking a deeper dive into income with a view to being able to say ‘yes’, when some high street lenders may reject a complex mortgage application.

“We look forward to supporting our broker partners as they use our new JBSP products to harness new business development opportunities with their customers.”
