What is Tembo?

Tembo is a family-focused digital mortgage broker backed with investment from Aviva and Nationwide. 

Tembo helps families support their children to get a foot on the ladder or buy their next home where traditional mortgages haven't worked. Using innovative family mortgages and alternative later life lending products we can help your clients to increase their deposit size with help from their family and friends.

Where we can help

If your client is using equity release to help family

If your customer is releasing equity from their home to gift or loan to a family member, we can help you support the whole purchasing process. We can arrange the homebuyers mortgage alongside the Lifetime mortgage. This creates additional income for you and provides a seamless experience for your customer.

We advise on alternative later life lending

If your client wants to release money to help a loved one buy, but they don't want to commit to equity release, Tembo offers a range of alternative later-life lending options. These include later life repayment and retirement interest-only mortgages.

If your client wants to lend a hand without using equity release

If your customer wants to support their family into homeownership, but is not sure about releasing equity from their property, we can provide specialist advice on a range of joint borrower sole proprietor mortgages.
