Ravenwood Mortgage Services are specialist mortgage brokers, who have specialists in broker-only adverse lenders. We are independent and have access to a massive range of lenders. We have a lot of direct contacts know a lot about bad credit mortgages.
Many lenders we used a lot in 2005-2007 that disappeared from the mortgage market have come back in late 2013, so more accessible finance is achievable. After 2008 interest-only mortgages were all but gone, but in 2014 they started to come back.
Mortgage lending, bridging finance, and development funding has been helped by a lot of positivity in the UK property market as unemployment goes down, interest rates stay low, and confidence is strong.
Bad credit mortgages are now getting terms closer to prime mortgages, and lenders have more confidence in the UK property market.
As interest rates are likely to stay historically low for a sustained period, people with cash can’t hold some money. They have to invest it, or they lose.
Rents in the UK continue to be powerfully combined with the demand for rental properties; the UK property market is seen around the world as a haven to hold your money.
What do we offer?

Because of our extensive knowledge of lenders’ criteria, both published and “non published”, we aim to get your finance application right the first time to subject you to the minimum of delays and minimizing the damage of searches in your credit file. This means no credit check until you are ready to apply to the lender.
A moderate amount of wage growth in the UK has made property affordable, especially outside the M25. Around the capital, property prices are still very high but have come off a little since Brexit as foreign cash buyers have been less willing to buy.
Lots of London tube zones 3-7 still have property prices below £650 per sq ft, but properties on the side of the Thames and in tube zone 2 were efficiently achieving £1000 per sq ft plus.
Outside the South East of England, you can still buy residential property for £150 per sq ft, even less in areas known for high rates of crime, high unemployment and low wages.
People are hanging onto many pre-crisis mortgages as some of them are terrific deals, but if you have a post-financial crisis mortgage, it could be an excellent time to refinance as lenders are being forced to compete for borrowers’ business.
There is little evidence lenders are concerned about the UK leaving the European Union. It’s true that a weaker pound will eventually filter through to higher commodity prices and domestic energy costs which will hurt people’s disposable income a little. But this should be offset by wage increases as the British economy expands.
Home Equity Finance Options
Some people could consider equity release to get money tied up in their homes. There are options for people under 55 also. Some big banks offer secured loans and personal loans, including Barclays, HSBC, Co-op and Halifax.
Different types of property

- Residential property that you live in
- Residential property that you own to rent out
- Mixed-use property that has commercial and residential elements where you may or may not live at your self/trade from

- The commercial property you own to rent to another business
