Home Mortgage

Helping you buy a UK home while you serve God’s Kingdom.

We know buying a property can be difficult when your primary earnings are from the church or as a missionary. Unlike some High Street lenders, we are familiar with the nature of your work and income.

We’ve supported many ministry workers to buy their own home using a Personal Mortgage, and would be delighted to explore whether we could do the same for you.

We currently offer full ownership or shared ownership mortgages.

Shared Ownership

We understand not everyone is in the position to buy a property outright, so you may be considering a Shared Ownership option.

Shared Ownership gives you the opportunity to acquire a stake in your own home when full house prices might otherwise be out of reach.

If you are considering a shared ownership mortgage you will first need to be approved by a Shared Ownership provider/Housing Association. If you have found a provider and want to take the next step please give us a call.

Typically, buyers purchase 25%-75% of the property with a deposit and a Kingdom Bank Home Mortgage. The remaining percentage is owned by a Housing Association or other property ownership specialist organisation such as Mission Housing.

You can see more about how a Shared Ownership Mortgage with Mission Housing would work here.

Depending on the arrangement, you may be able to purchase a larger share in the house if and when your financial situation changes.

We may be able to offer a mortgage for up to 90% of the share of the house you purchase. This means that you will typically need a lower deposit than for a traditional mortgage, giving you the helping hand you need to own your own home.

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

Customer Story

James and Emma are missionaries in Kenya with three adult children who study and work in the UK. They wanted to ensure their children had a UK base for university holidays and a place where the family could all be together. James and Emma struggled to secure a mortgage with a High Street lender who didn’t understand their circumstances or the nature of their income.

With a Kingdom Bank Home Mortgage, James and Emma were able to purchase and renovate a house close to their sending church.
