Community Housing Mortgage

Helping you give a home to others.

Christian social action projects are bringing restoration and hope to people across the country. 

We lend to individuals seeking to purchase accommodation to house vulnerable individuals, such as refugees, asylum seekers, adults with disabilities and those who have left prison or abusive situations. We also provide mortgages for social actions projects which are not overtly Christian.

We would usually require one of the following scenarios to be in place:

  • The property will be let to a charity who will provide accommodation and support for vulnerable individuals.
  • The mortgage borrower themselves will have considerable experience in directly providing this sort of accommodation.

The value of the mortgage available will depend on the amount of income the property will receive.

If you would like to discuss a Community Housing Mortgage, please do get in touch with our mortgage team.

YOUR PROPERTY MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

 

Case study

Janet volunteers for a Christian charity which supports asylum seekers. The charity was in need of housing for their clients, so Janet decided to purchase a property to rent back to the charity, enabling them to support those they serve.

Using a Kingdom Bank Community Housing Mortgage, Janet was able to facilitate accommodation for six asylum seekers connected with the charity. This enabled them to transform their lives, giving them physical provision and the opportunity to hear about Jesus.
