Harpenden Building Society

We understand what’s important to our customers so we treat them as individuals, recognising that they have their own personal needs and requirements. It’s important that we do this so we can provide a solution that meets their expectations.

We provide mortgages tailored to the requirements of the customer. Our mortgages are individually underwritten. There’s no tick-box credit scoring, just an individually assessed, common-sense approach using good judgement and sound lending practice. That way we get to completely understand their specific needs.

We make the complex more simple.

Our policy of lending to people in different types of employment has kept pace in an ever-changing environment. We therefore lend to people who are employed, self-employed, retired and contractors.

We pride ourselves on being flexible and accommodating to the changing nature of income.  We consider many income sources when determining mortgage affordability.  These include salary, bonus and commission, self-employed income, pension and investment or trust income.

We aim to make complex mortgages simpler. Our pragmatic and sensible approach ensures a mortgage application is individually assessed using common-sense.
