Brightstar's approach to the specialist residential mortgage 'State of the Nation'

Brightstar is continuing to see high loan to value enquiries where the client has a historical adverse credit history.  They’ve been able to place these enquiries on its  90% LTV semi-exclusive product with Kensington Mortgages. .


The team has helped an increasing number of brokers with enquiries where the client requires a higher income multiple but have missed mortgage payments.  In many cases, these clients have been through a recent marriage separation and are looking to make an onward purchase on their own.  For these clients, they are  able to achieve up to 75% LTV but there must not be more than a status 3 within the last 24 months on the mortgage payment profile.  Depending on the number of missed mortgage payments, the lender may consider another unit of adverse such as a CCJ/default in addition to the missed mortgage payments.

These products can go up to 6x’s income and rates start in the mid 4% region (75% LTV), depending on the client/property profile.

Brightstar has 2 new products available that cater for clients that have historical defaults and are looking for more competitive rates at 85% LTV.  The product is suitable for first time buyers as well as home movers and is also available for properties in Scotland.
