About us – Providing secured loans and mortgages for homeowners and home buyers

  Parity Trust provides secured loans and mortgages, which are available to homeowners as well as those looking to purchase a property for the first time. We have experience in retirement lending (lending to older borrowers) and providing shared ownership mortgages for Community Land Trust and Housing Association homes. In the past 10 years, we have offered over 650 secured home improvement loans enabling homeowners to invest in their properties.

We are proud of our long-standing partnership with a number of local authorities (see below for current partners) which enables us to offer affordable home improvement loans. These loans allow our clients to finance adaptations (including Disabled Facility Grant top-ups), repairs and improvements.

With the rising cost of living, house prices, shrinking savings pots and diminishing pensions, the need for affordable and flexible borrowing has never been greater, as a result, we have introduced products which meet the needs of those under-served by the mortgage market.Our lending activity serves to create lasting and sustainable change. The future is bright for Parity  as we look forward to developing our position of strength in today’s financial market.
