Both myself and my wife are past retirement age. We needed to move out interest only mortgage as our high street lender was being difficult. At our age getting a mortgage can be difficult to find. Our IFA approached Vernon and we received an offer. Yes the criteria and questions are thorough. But we did receive an offer which we accepted. Brilliant outcome for us!

That's great to hear Melvyn! We are so glad to hear that you had such a brilliant outcome with us.

Our financial advisor suggested the Vernon as a lender who would work with us on a specialist self build application. His advise proved to be good. Although there were a couple of delays along the way, we ultimately were satisfied with the process and funds were made available at an appropriate stage. Whoever we spoke to within the Vernon knew who we were and we didn't get lost in the system as happens with the large banks / lenders.

Great service which despite loads of issues from the broker Rosie and Jessica at Vernon in particular took ownership of the issues to resolve with our solicitor. What was a very stressful time was help to resolution by the caring and family feel of the company. Would highly recommend and loved our welcome to your home box. Very nice touch

Vernon building society provided me with a mortgage and took into account my personal circumstances rather than many larger building societies basic tick box judgements. The service was excellent and efficient and I even received a lovely welcome hamper when I moved into my new home!

Very difficult to deal with

I found the company very difficult to deal with, I had to jump through so many hoops, that I felt I was a circus lion. Of the many mortgages I have dealt with over the years, being a property investor, this was by far the most difficult one to date.

As with most mortgages but especially with a self-build, the lead up to completion can be very stressful. Although obtained via Buildstore, I had reason to chase various aspects directly with the Vernon to make sure the completion date was met. I could not have found more helpful or willing people to help get things over the line. Rosie and Dan were exemplars of customer service and made my priority their priority to ensure all was in place to meet my target date. It was great to find an organisation who are clearly focussed on the customer not just meeting a monthly target so it made my experience a very positive one. I would happily recommend the The Vernon to anyone seeking a self build mortgage.
PS. The Vernon's "welcome to your home" hamper was a lovely touch packed full of goodies to relax with - just great.

Very person centred friendly approach

Lucy talked us through everything step by step, answered all our questions but also took time to listen to us. It made the whole process so much easier and stress free

We are really glad to hear you had a stress free time with us, we will pass this message on to Lucy!
