Standard Financial Statement:
Help and Guidance
The best thing you can do with mortgage arrears is to pay them back as soon as you can.
If you are not in a position to pay your arrears, you need to give us a full description of your finances and the only way to do that is to fill out a Standard Financial Statement (SFS). This is a requirement under the Mortgage Arrears Resolution Process (MARP). If you’d like more detail about the MARP process then see here.
The SFS is quite detailed and can take a while to complete. We’ve made some videos (click here to view) to explain how to do your online SFS. The SFS will give a clear picture of your finances and allows us to see what can be done to help you with your arrears. You’ll also need to submit some supporting documents with your SFS, such as bank statements or wage slips.
To help you fill out your SFS we created a helpful user guide (click here to view) which contains lots of information and tips. If you get stuck when you’re filling out your online SFS, there are lots of tips along the way. You can save your work and come back to it later if you need to check something. If you need to talk to us we’re happy to help you - just call us on 0818 280 280 and our expert staff will help you.
