How we can help you with your mortgage

If you have concerns regarding your mortgage payments, please be assured that the Society will support you during this difficult time.  This support can be in the form of the following:

  • Reduced Payments
  • Interest Only
  • Full payment holiday for 3 months – For the next three months you will not pay anything. Then when your mortgage repayments resume, the total you owe would be spread over the remaining term, therefore, you would see a very small uplift in future monthly payments.

To enable us to support you in the best way possible please find here the Existing Customer Affordability Assessment form. 

  • When you are completing the take home pay (net salary) section, please confirm what your revised salary is going to be (if any) or what sick pay you may be entitled to;
  • Full details of your current circumstances;
  • All parties on the mortgage account need to complete and sign the attached form;

May we also  remind you that under the terms of the mortgage deed both borrowers are jointly responsible for payments

Here you can find a Money Advice Service leaflet – “Problems paying your mortgage” for your information.

To return the completed form to us, please email the form to customerservices@thehanley.co.uk.

We trust you will find this in order, and look forward to hearing from you in due course.  Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Customer Services on 01782 255000, option 6.

Branch Transactions

As the winter months approach and the weather turns cold and wet, we need to ensure we are looking after our members whilst also keeping them as safe as possible.

Covid seems to be staying longer than any of us had hoped, so the “2 customers in” rule has been reviewed and adapted to fit each individual branch size and layout.
