Income Flex

Help your clients to maximise their borrowing potential with Income Flex

Hinckley & Rugby’s new product solution is for borrowers requiring more than just a simple average of their payslips or SA302s. With Income Flex, we can help your clients to flex their income’s muscles by including various secondary sources of income.

Income Flex is available up to 95% LTV.

The table below shows Hinckley & Rugby’s standard lending criteria vs Income Flex criteria. We can consider various types of additional income, whether the applicant is salaried, self-employed or a contractor. This could include a combination of investment income, commission earnings, regular bonuses and overtime, rental income, and income from stocks and shares. There is a limit to the combination that can be used, depending on the source of the income, and we will be happy to explain this.

If you need even more flexible criteria, or would like to discuss Income Flex in more detail, call our Intermediary Sales Team on 01455 894084 Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm. We normally answer the phone within just a few seconds!
