General tips

  • If the application has more than 2 people on the mortgage it will need to be a paper-based application, this also refers to RIO and Porting cases.
  • When entering your application, please remember to select your mortgage club
  • Please do not enter the case in block capitals
  • With credit cards, please only enter the last 4 digits of the PAN number and the lenders name
  • If it is an Expat BTL, please answer No for the foreign currency indicator as the rent is paid in sterling and for Expat Residential, please answer yes, unless they are paid in sterling.

Frequently asked questions

I have a particularly unusual case to submit. Can I still use the online portal?
For those more 'unusual' cases please continue to pre-agree them with us. When running the DIP, please call us on 0330 123 1073 (Option 1) and let us know. We will then link this to the DIP so the underwriter is aware.

How do I enter self employed income in the online portal?
Sole Traders & Partnerships: Last two years' net profit can be input with their year end date.
Limited Companies: The applicant’s share of the net profit after tax needs to be input to the portal. If we are using salary and dividends, the figures need to follow in an email to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The system has asked for the ‘source of business.’ What do I put here?
When the system asks for source of business, please select intermediary (rather than the other options such as face to face).

I have a case with more than two applicants. Can I use the online portal?
Unfortunately we cannot currently accept cases with more then two applicants through the online portal. Please call us on 0330 123 1073 and we will provide you with a paper application.

My client(s) are expatriates. How do I enter their address using the portal?
- Enter a generic UK postcode
- Click search
- Select ‘None of the following’
- Manually enter foreign address

How do I enter joint debts/commitments?
Please enter all joint debts or other commitments under applicant one.

My solicitor isn’t available in the ‘search’ list?
If your chosen solicitor is not available in the search list, simply click that the applicant has not yet found a solicitor and provide details to us separately in an email.

How do I upload documents to the portal?
Uploading documents – there is no maximum file size. Please split documents down by type and then name the file i.e. keeping payslips separate from bank statements. This makes it easier and quicker for our underwriters to underwrite the case and give you a decision.
