James Bawa, Chief Executive of Teachers Building Society said, “Teachers Building Society is committed to providing products that serve the needs of teachers including those whose mortgage term continues into their retirement and those already retired. In a mortgage market where many lenders are unwilling to lend to people into retirement we are pleased to be able to meet this increasing need. The Society has carefully considered customer outcomes and based our decision to launch these mortgages on statistics, including Office for National Statistics data and research among teachers in England and Wales.”

Colin Dorman, National Account Manager for Teachers Building Society, said: “Feedback from intermediaries regularly mentions the fact that lenders need to cater for older borrowers as part of the lifecycle of financial needs. Our measured approach is a welcome addition to our new and exciting line up of products.”

The mortgages have been launched to the intermediary channel in the first instance but will be available direct in coming weeks.

The Society has been providing mortgages to teachers and education professionals for nearly 50 years as well as local residents in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire, it also provides savings account to anyone in the UK. The Society’s current product range includes deals for people remortgaging and moving home as well as first-time buyers.
