Buy for Uni

A Buy for Uni mortgage from The Loughborough could mean that you can buy a house to live in with the support of your family and rent rooms to cover the cost of the mortgage.

The principle behind the Buy for Uni mortgage is simple.  With the help of parents, a step-parent or grandparents a student can buy a house rather than pay a great deal of rent for less than great accommodation.  They rent spare rooms in the house to friends or fellow students and the rental income covers the mortgage payments.

We have products available on an interest only or repayment basis for the purchase of property in mainland England and Wales. You can find more information in our leaflet and answers to some questions you may have here.
