Important proof of deposit changes

From Monday 5 July we’ll no longer accept residential or Buy to Let applications where your client’s mortgage deposit funds originate from the below countries/jurisdictions (this includes gifted deposit applications).

Other proof of deposit changes

From Monday 5 July the following changes will also take effect:

  • We will not accept deposit funds originating from a child’s bank account/trustee account or a foreign business bank account.
  • For gifted deposit applications where the funds are received from abroad, there are some additional requirements we may ask for to evidence the deposit including a letter from each donor providing more details.
Pipeline rules

All full mortgage applications (FMAs) already submitted on Introducer Internet by 9pm on Sunday 4 July won’t be affected by these changes. Any FMAs submitted from 6am on Monday 5 July will be assessed using our updated rules.
