Pepper Money are a multi-award-winning specialist lender offering Residential and Buy to Let mortgages exclusively through intermediaries. 

Pepper Money believe in challenging the accepted. 

They pride themselves on their ability to look beyond the numbers on a credit score and their specialist team of skilled, mandated underwriters review each case on its own merits. 

So, if you’ve got a client who’s recently self-employed, has credit blips, a complex income, young credit history or previous financial difficulties, speak to Pepper Money. 


Why complex and challenging cases? 

As part of their mission to help intermediaries support borrowers with adverse credit, Pepper Money conducted research in Autumn 2019 to discover more about what adverse credit means for brokers and borrowers.  

Here’s three interesting insights from the Adverse Credit Study which show why intermediaries should be optimistic about this specialist area:  

  • There’s a 1.26m strong market of adverse borrowers looking to purchase a property in the next 12 months 
  • From the market of adverse borrowers, more than one third (34%) were considering a buy to let investment in the next 12 months 
  • 93% of people surveyed with adverse credit in the last 3 years don’t know that it is possible to get a mortgage with a CCJ registered as recently as 6 months ago
