Introducing Teachers For Intermediaries


​Complex borrowing solutions and education sector expertise from Teachers for Intermediaries.

Article date: 16/12/2019

We're delighted to announce that Teachers for Intermediaries (TFI) have joined our panel. If the property your client is looking to buy is unusual or there are any other complication factors like age, income or a shorter term required, TFI welcome a challenge to provide a borrowing solution.

They've recorded a short video to provide you with an overview of their proposition:

Criteria Highlights



  • Consider multiple income sources
  • Use of unearned income such as retained profit, undrawn investment / pension income
  • Provide self-employed solutions into retirement

Short term lending between 1-5 years on No ERC interest only to suit your client who may be:

  • Awaiting sale of property
  • Timing around disposal of assets
  • Requirement to maintain debt/tax planning

They can handle property with complexity:

  • Acreage
  • Outbuildings / annex (Let)
  • Holiday lets on site
  • Basement flat
  • Mixed use
  • One title deed

They understand how frustrating it can be seeing your clients turned down for a mortgage based purely on their age. By assessing affordability on interest only and focussing on the overall creditworthiness of the application, age is rarely the be-all and end-all.
