We are aware of scams involving individuals being offered loans for an advanced upfront fee. With the fraudster posing as a representative of a financial services organisation. At Pepper Money we do not charge any fees before the application stage. We would not approach you directly in this way. Your broker will be able to tell you what fees and charges the product you’re applying for has, and when they will be charged. If you think you have been a victim of such a scam, please contact your bank immediately and report it to action fraud.

Our response to the government’s Mortgage Charter – Last update: 14 September 2023

Following the announcement from the government on 23rd June 2023 regarding support for mortgage customers, we’re updating this page regularly and are checking the requirements of the charter.

Whilst we haven’t signed up to the charter, we’re still able to offer the same support to customers who are up to date on their mortgage payments, without it impacting your credit file.

We have a range of support available for customers who are already in arrears to help minimise the impact of the rising cost of living and borrowing.

If you’d prefer to speak to us about your options, whether you’re experiencing financial difficulty or are unsure of your options, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. Contacting us won’t impact your credit score.

What can I do if I’m worried about being able to pay my mortgage or loan?

If you think you may struggle with meeting your repayments now or in the near future, please contact us on 03333 701 102 (9am – 6pm, Monday to Friday). As soon as we understand your situation, we can help you.

We recommend you complete our income and expenditure form before you call. This will help us see what borrowing you’ve got, your fixed and variable costs and the money you’ve got left over each month to make towards re-payments, and one of the team will go through it with you on the call.

To reassure you, contacting us about your mortgage or homeowner loan doesn’t affect your credit file.

How can I plan ahead of my fixed rate coming to an end?

We understand that there is a lot of uncertainty about mortgage rates rising. We don’t offer any mortgages directly to our customers at the moment. We recommend speaking to a mortgage broker if you’re considering remortgaging soon. Ideally, speak with a broker at least six months before your fixed mortgage period expires.

They will be able to help you establish what your best next move is, whether that’s a fixed rate for five years, an interest-only mortgage, or another option.
