Trussle, the UK’s first online mortgage broker, is campaigning for fairer mortgages.
The company has launched a manifesto which seeks to champion homeowners over the big banks, amidst what it calls a ‘broken’ mortgage system and inaccessibility of the housing market.
On April 17, Trussle hosted a march in London to demonstrate the unfairness of the mortgage system and barriers facing homeowners currently.
It also launched a ‘digital march’ across its website and social channels, encouraging prospective and current homeowners to sign up and join a virtual demonstration against the industry.
Once signed up, participants will be able to create an avatar track sign-up figures in real time.
Ishaan Malhi, chief executive officer and founder of Trussle, commented: “The current mortgage system is broken and not working to a standard that’s far for all.”
“Many people are shut out of mortgages, including the young, the old, the self-employed and those on low-income. We stand for homeowners and our new manifesto cements our position in the fight for fairer mortgages.”
He said that hosting the digital and real-time march will bring to light ‘the number of homeowners currently under-served and mistreated by the mortgage market’.
“We’ll be working closely with government and industry leads to solve issues in the mortgage industry once and for all,” he concluded.
