Yes, we do have a minimum equity requirement if downsizing is the repayment vehicle. This is based on region and is subject to change so please note the amount can vary.

For joint applications we will accept both incomes, earned or pension income, so we assess just like a conventional mortgage. Please note cases are subject to income multiples of 4.5x income and earned income is subject to a maximum age of 75 or retirement age, whichever comes sooner

You can find an AIP form on our ‘Downloads‘ section. Please complete the editable PDF and email it to intermediaries@themarsden.co.uk. The team will then assess it and contact you with the outcome. Please check our ‘Service standards’ page to see our current AIP turnaround times.
