The Mortgage Brain’s work with foster carers

‘We understand the challenges faced by foster carers when it comes to securing a mortgage. If you are fed up with lenders asking for your accounts and questioning your income, please look no further.

'With several years of experience in this area, our advisers Marcus and Katie have helped hundreds of foster carers and have worked tirelessly with The Fostering Network to ensure the absolute best service for their members.

‘Working across the whole of the market, our advisers have established working relationships with lenders to ensure that 100% of the fostering income can be used.

‘The Mortgage Brain prides itself on offering outstanding customer service and it is our commitment to support you throughout the mortgage process from application through to completion.’

What foster carers say about The Mortgage Brain Limited

'This is my second mortgage through The Mortgage Brain as a foster carer. I don't think I would have been able to get a mortgage without their specialist knowledge. They obtained a very competitive rate for me and the whole process was very smooth and stress-less.'

'If it wasn’t for the hard work from everyone at The Mortgage Brain, I wouldn’t be in my dream home now! Thank you and I would recommend any foster carer to contact The Mortgage Brain.'

'A great big thank you for the excellent service you have provided for us in the purchase of our new home. As foster carers, our situation was certainly unique, yet your professionalism, ability to understand our needs and clear knowledge of the mortgage market have been invaluable. We can't thank you enough and will happily commend your service to our fostering colleagues.'

'I'm a single carer and was really struggling to get a mortgage. The Mortgage Brain understood my financial situation. I didn't have to explain foster carer allowances and they got me the mortgage I'd only dreamed of getting! I'm now very happy in my very own home.'
