Accord Mortgages Yes, but we do need to make sure that solution we offer is right for individual customer’s circumstances. As we're dealing with extremely high numbers of calls at this time, we need to ensure we're prioritising the customers who need our help the most, so we'd ask you to call us only if you are having difficulties meeting your next mortgage payment.


If you find yourself in financial difficulties because of the impact of Covid-19, and are unable to make your next mortgage payment with us, please talk to us on 0345 848 0225 (for Buy to Let customers only).


We can discuss whether options including a payment holiday on your mortgage might be suitable for you, although this will result in you paying back more interest on your mortgage overall. In addition, we are currently waiving all of our late payment fees for mortgage customers.


Al Rayan Bank We recognise that some of our customers could experience financial difficulties in the coming weeks due to coronavirus-related disruption. We will work with each customer on an individual basis to assess what help is available to help them manage their finances. We would encourage any customers who think they may be affected to contact us as soon as possible.

Aldermore We are offering customers the option to reduce or defer mortgages payments for up to 3 months. This means you can pay a lower payment or take a break from payments. You’ll need to make up the payments later in your mortgage term and we’ll work with you to find the best way to do this. There won’t be any impact on your credit rating during the period. Some eligibility criteria will apply. We also have other options available, including making overpayments. If you’re able to make an overpayment in the short term you could reduce your monthly payments later on. There are some account terms and conditions and eligibility criteria that apply to this.


We can discuss this in more detail if it’s an option for you. Existing mortgage customers can contact Aldermore on: 0333 321 1000 (selecting option 2, option 1, then option 4) or mortgage.servicing@aldermore.co.uk.

Birmingham Midshires With immediate effect, customers who have been IMPACTED by Covid-19 will be offered payment holidays for up to three months on a ‘no quibble basis’. This applies to all BM Solutions customers regardless of whether they have a Buy to Let or Residential mortgage. If a customer applies for a payment holiday and is accepted, this will not impact their credit file. We'll recalculate the monthly payments at the end of the payment holiday, and these will increase. The balance owed on the mortgage will increase because the interest which is due each month will be added to the total amount owed, for the duration of the payment holiday. Where we have said customers won’t get charged for a missed payment, for customers who are one or more months in arrears and a payment holiday has not been agreed this will however affect their credit file at the end of the month. Payment holidays which are agreed will not impact on the customers’ ability to apply for further borrowing or a product transfer in the future.


Where a customer wishes to request a payment holiday, intermediaries should ask the customer to call 0345 300 2627 (Option 5, Option 3).


Bluestone In accordance with government policy, Bluestone Mortgages will offer a payment holiday of up to three months for eligible customers who are affected by Covid-19, either directly or indirectly.

Customers will also be able to continue to make regular or ad-hoc payments to their mortgage during the payment holiday, to allow them to lessen the impact of the increase to the mortgage balance if they are able to.

Coventry Building Society Customers who are up to date with their mortgage payments and not currently in financial difficulty can request a 3 month payment holiday if they need help as a result of COVID 19. Customers will self-certify, disclosing that they are impacted by Coronavirus, we will not be asking for any further validation of this. Providing a payment holiday will not attract arrears or adverse Credit data. Once the payment holiday is over, we will look at options to recalculate deferred payments but will contact the client about this. These deferred payments mean that interest will not be collected on their balance (which is not reducing either). Once recalculated, their payment will increase as the balance + interest on the balance not collected during the holiday will be rescheduled over a slightly shorter term.


This applies to Residential and Buy to let lending. Contact number for clients affected - 0800 121 8899

If you are concerned about making your mortgage payments during this time you should contact us as soon as possible. You will not need to complete an application; you will just need to self-certify that your income has been either directly or indirectly impacted by Covid-19. You will need to self-certify that your tenant’s income has been impacted by Covid-19. Landlords are expected to pass on this relief to their tenants to ensure that they are supported during the Coronavirus crisis.

Habito While there are many similarities and the requirement to support the market is the same, The buy to let market is different to the residential market in that significant affordability buffers exist like for instance the application of Interest Coverage Ratios to cope with exactly a scenario of temporary rent shortfall. It is also more dependent on whole market funding and a balance needs to be kept between supporting landlords who face unexpected rent shortfalls and ensuring there is continued supply of new mortgages.


We therefore support a 3 month payment holiday being part of the forbearance and pre-delinquency toolkit, but would like to tailor it to the BTL sector by

a. establishing a way of evidencing the financial distress over and above some rent arrears and

b. continuing to use judgement to make sure that the payment holiday and not another forbearance tool is the right thing for the customer.


We think a moratorium on repossessions for the next 3 months is sensible, and probably what would happen in practice anyway, although we would expect repossession claims to continue to be applied in the market.


In Habito's capacity as mortgage lender, we are happy to sign up to both a 3 month moratorium on repossessions and payment holidays for any of our customers in financial difficulties.
