No, we don’t do consumer lending. So we don’t do traditional 30 year mortgages, car loans, etc.
While First Mortgage Trust has a small number of pre-existing consumer loans, it is no longer in the business of providing such loans. Accordingly, our suite of consumer loan documents is no longer included on our website. If you have any queries around an existing loan, please contact us on 0800 321 113.
The rate charged will depend on your financial circumstances taking into account, how much you want to borrow, the term of your loan, your income, your other financial commitments, your credit history, and the Loan to Value Ratio of security offered.
