Proportunity, the equity loan provider helping people to raise a large enough deposit, is the latest lender to join The MCI mortgage club. MCI continues to grow its lender panel and offering an increased number of solutions to brokers and their clients.
Proportunity plays a unique role in helping people to buy a home by boosting their deposit size. Proportunity offers a unique, ‘Help-to-Buy’ style equity loan that boosts aspiring homeowners’ budgets by up to £150,000.
Members of the MCI mortgage club will now be able to unlock up to six times salary for their clients. The client can have as little as a 5% deposit and Proportunity will provide an equity loan to increase this to between 15% and 30% of the property value. This will increase the borrower’s chances of getting the mortgage they need and paying a lower interest rate on the mainstream part of their mortgage.
What is more, until the 30th September 2021 there will be no product fees on all new cases coming through MCI mortgage club.
The loan is available on both new-build and existing properties across England and Wales and is available both to first-time buyers and existing home owners. It works alongside a main bank mortgage product, with both loans taken at point of purchase by owner-residents.
FCA authorised and regulated, Proportunity has seen exponential growth since it started lending three years ago and has helped to finance hundreds of homebuyers. The intermediary-only lender is now looking to help over 2,000 buyers over the next twelve months through the help of its distribution partners. It provides brokers with a unique way of helping their clients, particularly those buying an existing property.
Melanie Spencer, head of MCI Club, says: “We are always looking for lenders that bring something different to the table and provide innovative solutions. First-time buyers, some people getting divorced and other people with small deposits can find it particularly challenging to get a mortgage and buy a property. The addition of Proportunity to our panel will therefore give our brokers a unique opportunity to help more clients as they will be able to borrow up to six times income with just a 5% deposit. Proportunity provides a pioneering new approach and is a breath of fresh air to the lending market, so it is great to welcome them onto our panel.”
Vadim Toader, CEO of Proportunity added: “We are really excited to work together with The MCI Mortgage Club to help today’s young buyers afford the homes they want. It’s a pain point that is becoming increasingly acute as house prices grow and the Help-to-Buy scheme comes to an end. We hope that MCI’s club members will immediately see the benefit that our loan can provide for those struggling with deposits and long-term affordability. To welcome brokers through our new partnership with MCI, we will waive all product fees for the next two months until 30th September 2021 for all cases submitted through MCI club.”
