Can local authority workers get a mortgage discount?

Yes, local authority workers could get a discount or a better deal because of working in the public sector. People who work in a local authority usually have excellent job security, which is very important to lenders and can help with the range of mortgages on offer to you. 

What is a local authority mortgage?

A local authority mortgage is a mortgage that offers a special interest rate or mortgage options for local authority workers. Most of these mortgages are just standard mortgages, but they are marketed as local authority mortgages because they include special benefits for council workers. 

Are local authority mortgages widely advertised?

Unfortunately not. You might not find any local authority mortgage deals if you don’t use a broker specialising in this area. In addition, using comparison websites may not help you find mortgages with benefits for local authority staff. 

What government schemes can help local authority staff?

There are several schemes organised by the government to help people buy property, especially if you’re buying your first home. Our mortgage advisers will explain all your options so you don’t miss out on a scheme that you could benefit from. 

If I am in a unique situation, can you help?

Absolutely. We have helped local authority staff with all various issues, ranging from payslips to contracts and more. No matter how unusual your situation is, don’t hesitate to challenge us to find you a great mortgage deal.
