Experts in affordability

Ultimately, most lenders aren't concerned with how many applicants are on a mortgage. All they care about is whether it's affordable, which is no mean feat on a single income. So if you're a single buyer, it's important you speak to an affordability expert. Our technology helps buyers, movers and remortgage customers to discover their true buying budget from over 100 lenders and 17 specialist schemes.

Create a Tembo recommendation to find out what you can borrow alone with a standard solo mortgage, as well as how a guarantor could boost your affordability, and check if you're eligible for any more niche schemes that could support your mortgage application. All in under 10-minutes.
