Customers
We have been dedicated to helping our customers during the pandemic. 

We understand as restrictions are eased, you may still need tailored support to get back up and running. 

We hope this won’t continue indefinitely, but are here to offer the right support at the right time.

 

If you are not financially impacted at this time and can continue to make payments, then we encourage you to do so. If this changes at any time, please get back in touch with our collections team on 0118 055 6675.

We’re supporting our commercial mortgage customers who are financially impacted by COVID-19. 

We’ll need to speak with you to understand your individual situation and discuss the options available to you. Please contact your relationship manager or contact our in-life team on 01733 404 518 or by email: commercialportfolioteam@aldermore.co.uk. 

Here’s how we may be able to help given the latest government and FCA guidance: 

  • Customers can now apply for their first payment break up to the 31 March 2021
  • Customers who’ve taken a 3 month break can apply for a further deferral of up to 3 months
  • Customers financially impacted by COVID-19 can apply to take a maximum payment break of up 6 months (subject to credit approval)
  • There shouldn’t be any impact on your credit rating during your mortgage break period. However, it’s important to understand that lenders may use information obtained from other sources, such as bank account information, in their future lending decisions. If you can’t afford to start making your monthly payments at the end of your mortgage break, we’ll work with you to find a suitable solution. If you do enter an arrangement to make non or part payments for an agreed period, then we’ll be required to update your credit report to reflect this and it will show as missed payments on your file.

Clients - please contact your Relationship Manager directly to discuss your situation further.
