As of 5pm, Friday 18th September 2020 Darlington Intermediaries are temporarily increasing the minimum loan size for all out of area mortgage applications (excluding shared ownership) to £100,000.

‘Out of area’ is defined as where the mortgaged property is outside of the Society’s operating postcode areas, which are: DL, TS, DH, YO, SR & HG.

The standard minimum loan size (£25,000) will continue to apply to these postcode areas and all shared ownership products.

The decision has been made due to the unprecedented level of demand Darlington Intermediaries are currently experiencing for their mortgages.

Mortgage applications where a DIP was undertaken before 5pm Friday 18 September 2020 will continue to be accepted.

All DIPs for out of area mortgages after 5pm Friday 18 September 2020 must meet the new minimum loan size requirement of £100,000.

The minimum loan size applies only to new mortgage applications and does not impact existing members seeking additional borrowing, product transfers or any other servicing based requests.

Darlington Intermediaries thank their broker partners for their continued support and patience through this very busy period.
