"Customers with credit issues, or non-traditional financial circumstances, are increasingly needing personalised services when trying to get a firm foot on the property ladder"
Bluestone Mortgages has launched its full residential and buy-to-let product ranges across mainland Scotland.
Residential products start from 3.74% for a two-year fix at 60% LTV on Bluestone’s Clear rating and buy-to-let rates start from 3.99%.
As part of the launch, Bluestone will accept home report valuations on residential purchase cases where these have been completed by a valuer on Bluestone’s panel.
Steve Seal, director of sales and marketing at Bluestone Mortgages, commented: “We are delighted to be extending our services into Scotland at a very exciting time for Bluestone. Customers with credit issues, or non-traditional financial circumstances, are increasingly needing personalised services when trying to get a firm foot on the property ladder and here is where we felt there was a lack of competition and choice.
“Scotland, however, is no exception to the rest of the UK in needing tailor-made solutions. We’re always on the lookout for new ways to serve borrowers and we look forward to working more closely with our partners and brokers in Scotland.
Ian McGrail, managing director at First Mortgage, added: “It’s great to see Bluestone Mortgages enter the Scotland market. Whilst we are seeing more lenders than ever trying to accommodate borrower types in England, this is not necessarily been across the breadth of the UK. We have ourselves recently launched our own Specialist team and along with Bluestone's entrance, this will bring a much-needed offering to customers in Scotland. Looking forward, we are excited to see Bluestone’s progression in this market as well as the widespread effect it will bring to borrowers.”
