Charters Financial Services appointed to the mortgage provider panel of Sovereign Housing Association

22nd November 2021

22/11/2021: Southampton, UK: Charters Financial Services, the leading south east mortgage and financial services provider, has been appointed preferred mortgage broker panel member by Sovereign Housing Association.

Sovereign is one of the foremost housing associations with almost 60,000 high quality homes spanning its core area of the south, southwest of England and the Isle of Wight. It has a network of regional offices located throughout its operating area and, with a 30-year heritage of affordable home development, it has ambitious plans for the future.

This includes continuing to utilise the expertise and resources of prominent independent mortgage advisers who have demonstrated high levels of service and experience of affordable housing schemes to support its applicants.

To this end, Charters Financial Services, via a rigorous tender process, secured a place on Sovereign’s prestigious panel who will help prospective purchasers secure mortgages on their shared ownership and open market sale properties.

‘We’re very proud to have been handpicked by Sovereign,’ said Alain Amos, Managing Director of Charters Financial Services. ‘We have considerable experience dealing with the UK’s leading housing associations, so we know how to qualify and support candidates through the shared ownership mortgage process. We believe in making every transaction as seamless as stress-free as possible and our Mortgage and Protection team is adept at helping borrowers navigate the purchase of what, for many, will be their first home.

‘We’ve enjoyed working with the Sovereign team to achieve our position and are now very much looking to developing our partnership and doing the best we can to get their clients into great quality affordable housing.’

Hope Bailey, Sovereign Sales Manager said, ‘We are delighted to welcome Charters to our new mortgage broker panel. Their ethos of putting the customer at the heart of what they do aligns perfectly with our own values and we know their experience of both affordable and open market sale mortgages will help deliver a best-in-class customer service.’

Charters Financial Services is already working on processing applications for prospective buyers keen to make their move into Sovereign’s exclusive Knights Quarter development in Winchester. A fabulous range of one and two-bedroom apartments will be completed in early 2022 and, with just a 10-minute walk into the city, demand is expected to be high.

I took out my first mortgage through Charters Financial Services and could not recommend them highly enough. Their service is simply incredible. The process began with many helpful talks with Kevin, who talked me through the process, demystified a lot of the things I'd read online and decide which lender was best suited to my individual requirements. As a first time buyer this was invaluable information. Since our mortgage offer, we have had the brilliant support of Marie, who has answered any further questions we may have. Their support did not stop after our first purchase fell through as they worked to get us a new mortgage offer on a second property - all at no extra cost. If you're looking to buy your first home, go to Charters Financial Services. I have already recommended them to a friend who is looking to buy their first property, and will be using their services again in future.
