If you are having trouble paying your mortgage please don’t ignore the problem. We’re always on hand to listen and offer advice. We have a few options for you if you ever find that you are short of money. The sooner you let us know, the quicker we can help and get you back on track.
How we can help
The first thing to do is get in touch with us, the sooner the better. Call us on 0345 051 8447 and we’ll put you in touch with a specialist adviser who will be sensitive to your specific situation. We’ve created a set of FAQs that talk through the most common scenarios.
We’ll help you work out what’s affordable by completing a budgeting form. This will document all your income and outgoings, including what you owe to any other creditors. You'll then get a true reflection of what your disposable income (what’s left after everything is paid) actually is and what you can realistically afford to pay.
