Features of Affordability Brain

Affordability Brain has innovation at its core, eliminating the need to visit each lender's website and input information multiple times, making it a quick, accurate and easy solution to affordability sourcing.

Results from lenders include a breakdown of values across three areas for transparency and clarity:

  1. Loan to Requested - amount requested likely to be affordable
  2. Loan to Purchase - maximum based on property AND income
  3. Loan to Income - Maximum based purely on income

Lenders available on Affordability Brain account for around 85% of mortgages sold in the UK and the platform experienced over £37bn of loans submitted in its first year.

Combine all three elements to best match a client's needs to products available and get a clear understanding of what each lender is willing to lend with the utmost clarity for your customers, in a single journey.

What our customers say:

"Today I had already sourced for a client as I knew the specific lender criteria on income types. However, I input the details on Affordability Brain to use the software as an experiment for the same client; if I had done this earlier in the day, I would've saved a lot of time, as the results confirmed my findings in just a few data input screens. This is without doubt, the best facility I have ever used."

Stuart Gardner, Sanderson Financial Ltd
