Intelligent Finance mortgages

Intelligent Finance was founded in 2000 and is a division of Bank of Scotland plc.

The lender specialises in offset mortgages with a large range that cover first-time buyers, those moving home and those looking to remortgage.
Offsetting works by using the balance in your intelligent finance savings or current account to reduce the balance on which you pay interest on your mortgage rather than paying interest on the whole amount as you would with a standard mortgage.
