How the Mortgage Express Number Works
Mortgage Express is a subsidiary business of mortgage lenders Bradford & Bingley. both of which became nationalised in 2008. As a result, they no longer take on new customers, but are dedicated to helping their pre-existing customers make the most of their mortgage and finances.
Mortgage Express offer various mortgage options for homeowners, landlords and potential lifetime borrowers. Customers may have also purchased an Insurance & Protection policy or a wealth/investment product, which may have since been transferred to a new provider.
Mortgage Express can also provide solutions to repayment difficulties or help you find a better deal if you are coming to the end of your loan.
Help for homeowners
How to pay your mortgage:
There are several different payment methods to help you repay your mortgage. They are:
- By Direct Debit.
- Automated payment line.
- Online transfer (via online banking).
- Standing order.
- In branch (visit RBS or Natwest; requires paying in book).
If you have concerns about meeting your mortgage repayments, Mortgage Express can help. They can put you in touch with independent advisors to help you.
If you are struggling to pay your mortgage as a Mortgage Express customer, here’s how they can help:
- Arrange a new payment plan and monitor it.
- Change your payment date or how you make the payment.
- Changing the type of mortgage you have temporarily.
Overpayments can be a great way to improve your financial standing, as each overpayment you make reduces the balance of your mortgage. If you can’t afford to make an overpayment every month, just make an overpayment when you can.
Finding a better mortgage deal:
As Mortgage Express is closed to new business, this means that if interest rates rise in future, the company will be unable to offer customers a better deal. As a result, customers may find a better deal with another provider. You also won’t be able to borrow any extra money.
Depending on the type of mortgage that you have, you may have to pay an early repayment charge when you move your mortgage to another lender. Currently, to make the process easier, Mortgage Express is waiving the early repayment fee until further notice.
You can use the Mortgage Express deal finder tool to search the market and find deals from other lenders. You can also set up email alerts to inform you of future deals.
Mortgage Express can also put you in touch with a Mortgage Broker who will be happy to assist you in finding a better deal.
Mortgage Express is continuing to assist buy to let customers in managing their property portfolio.
If you are a portfolio landlord, you can access the Mortgage Express support network. Here, you’ll be able to get support for a range of issues such as testing your portfolio for potential issues and a subscription to a landlord specific magazine.

More About Mortgage Express
Mortgage Express are able to provide a high level of support for the UK’s taxpayers thanks to its government-owned status and the fact that it is no longer focusing on selling new products, but is concentrating on current customers.
The business has been managed by UK Asset Resolution Ltd (UKAR) since 2010, along with Bradford & Bingley and Northern Rock. UKAR supports over 584,000 customers and looks after loans totaling £65.8 billion.
Mortgage Express was nationalised, and the savings aspect of Bradford and Bingley was passed along to Santander . Mortgage Express is closed to new customers. The objective of the company is to gradually wind down their mortgage business, so they are helping customers to avoid financial difficulties and seek better mortgage deals. Mortgage Express recommends that customers speak to independent mortgage brokers before they make a decision regarding their mortgage.
Originally, Mortgage Express was developed by the Bradford & Bingley bank to deal with more complex forms of mortgages such as buy to let mortgages.
About Bradford and Bingley
Bradford and Bingley was first formed back in 2000, following the demutualisation of the building society. In 2008, following a difficult financial climate due to the credit crunch, the bank had to be nationalised and split into two parts: mortgages and investments, and deposits and branch network. The former was kept under the name Bradford & Bingley, whilst the latter was sold to Abbey National, which later became Santander.
The process of becoming nationalised went smoothly for Bradford & Bingley, as several months earlier, Northern Rock had undergone a similar process, so the legislation was still in place. It took just 24 hours for the proposal to be approved by European regulators.
