Aldermore Product Update

Aldermore announced some product changes.  See below for more information.  For information on their current products and criteria call our team or click here.  REMEMBER, you can access the Aldermore range using our Direct to Lender mortgage club so do contact us for further information. 

Important LIBOR linked product update

With effect from Monday 14 December we’ll be relaunching our commercial and buy to let mortgage ranges. You’ll notice that LIBOR is being replaced by two new alternative reference rates.
•  Commercial mortgages – will be linked to Bank of England Base Rate (BBR)
•  Buy to let mortgages (previously linked to LIBOR) – will be linked to Aldermore Managed Rate (AMR)
Pipeline cases:

We’ll continue to process any live pipeline cases as usual. If you have an active case or enquiry that has not yet been offered we will contact you during the underwriting process to advise you of the new comparable AMR/BBR linked rates to replace any LIBOR linked product you have currently selected. 
 
For Buy to let mortgages if any offer extensions are required your reoffer will be made on a new comparable AMR linked product. 

Current commercial mortgage offers linked to LIBOR remain valid providing completion occurs within the validity period of the offer or if re-offered by 12 March 2021 at the latest.

Any mortgages completed on LIBOR linked products will later be migrated onto a comparable reference rate before 31 May 2021 (as per FCA guidelines).

Any new applications submitted from Monday 14 December will be based on the new AMR/BBR linked ranges. 

We’ve included a timeline below with some key dates, as we transition away from LIBOR over the coming months.

Aldermore mortgages: important changes to our application process

We’ve made some changes to our residential and commercial mortgage application process.

These changes will help us improve the way we review and process applications, so we can make quicker and better informed decisions for, you and your clients.

What’s changed?

When you submit a new application, we’ll now ask you to upload the documents we need to the portal at this new pre-full mortgage application (FMA) stage.

It’s really important that nothing is missed, as we won’t start assessing your case until we have everything asked for on the checklist.

Application will stay open for 7 working days, giving you time to upload the documents. If we receive an application without all requested documents or after the 7 day deadline, the case will be closed and you’ll need to resubmit the application.

When we have everything we need, the status of your application will change to ‘FMA Submitted’ and sit in our pipeline to be reviewed.

We’ll let you know if there’s any further documentation we need once we’ve reviewed your case.

When we receive your fully packaged application, our underwriters will now have all the information they need to start assessing your case.
