About Roots Mortgages

Roots Mortgages was setup to make getting a mortgage easier and more relatable for contractors and freelancers than anywhere else in the country.

We’ve been working in the contractor marketplace for almost two decades at some of the biggest and well known contractor servicing firms in the UK, making contracting part of our DNA.

Too many times mortgages are associated with boring men in suits talking at you, and talking jargon. We’re a fresh, young, relatable brand working in an old, converted factory in the heart of the East Midlands, and we don’t wear suits or bring briefcases to work.

We’re not bogged down with legacy systems, instead we utilise cutting edge technology and build our own systems. Most importantly when you talk we listen. It’s a hard job, but we try to make the mortgage and protection customer journey enjoyable for everyone – well, as much as it can be…
