Inclusive and ethical structure for all client types

StrideUp’s product is constructed as a Home Purchase Plan (HPP)*. This works for all type of clients, but in particular allows you to help Muslim clients who want Sharia-compliant financing for their home.  

The HPP product is regulated under FCA rules (requires separate advice permissions) and:
- If you have FCA HPP advice permissions, you can advise the customer and submit the application directly to StrideUp.
- If you do not have FCA HPP advice permissions, you can refer the customer directly to StrideUp and we will provide the advice.

Regardless of who advises the client, a procuration fee will be paid on completed cases.

* What is a home purchase plan?

A home purchase plan enables customers to purchase or refinance a home with a structure that works for all customers while allowing it to be certified as Shariah compliant.  This provides an inclusive option for Muslim clients.  In summary, the customer co-purchases the property with StrideUp and enters into a long term rental and buyout with a term from 10—40 years, such that the customer owns the property outright at the end of the term.  Customers can make additional payments as and when they want, subject to T&Cs.
