Who is Haysto for?

We’re here for the ones who fall through the cracks. For the individuals, the mavericks, and the complicated. When the “computer says no”, we turn to the humans. Trusted brokers and lenders who look for the story behind the numbers.

Specialist mortgage brokers

Real people.
Real possibilities.

We don’t use technology to replicate humans. We use technology to enable us to spend more time on what matters most. Understanding your unique situation, and finding the right mortgage for you. Meet the experts. Not the robots.

Why we exist

We get how it feels when you’re refused a mortgage. We’ve been there. Haysto exists because the mortgage world is broken. If you don’t have a shiny credit rating, you’re self-employed with a complex income, or just don’t fit the mould, the odds are completely stacked against you. We just don’t think that’s fair.

Read our story

We help when others won’t

We only work on bad credit, self-employed and complex mortgages. And we’re up for a challenge.


Speak to a real person

No robots, no automated answers. We use technology to connect you to a real person. Not replace them.


Your success is our success

Our platform connects you to the perfect specialist broker for free. We only get paid when your mortgage is approved.

Because we’ve been there and get how it feels, we support mental health charity Mind so they can continue to give support to people struggling with financial worries.

Right Broker +
Right Lender =
Right Mortgage

Some things don’t always add up, but one thing we’re certain about is that when you have the right broker and lender on your side your chances of mortgage success are much higher. That's because over 50% of mortgages for people in your situation aren't directly available to you without a specialist broker.

Our brokers have expert knowledge of specialist lenders. Lenders who use human underwriters that look beyond credit scores and automated box ticking. They treat customers as individuals and look for reasons to help, rather than refuse it.

Using our platform guarantees you’ll be matched with an expert who has a proven track record of making mortgages possible for people like you. Less processing, more understanding.

“Chris Towlson works so hard! Whenever I sent him emails, I've always received his reply within 2 hours, even 1:00am in the morning and weekends! Sometimes I really wonder whether he works 24 hours a day! He is always really polite and patient to explain everything to me, his knowledge of the whole mortgage market is exceptional! I would highly recommend him!”

“From start to finish, Greig and Emily were very helpful with our mortgage application. The advice Greig gave us was very clear and informed. They were always available either by phone or email to answer any questions we had. The whole process was made a lot easier because of the work they did. Would thoroughly recommend.”

“Sarah has been the most amazing support I could have asked for during an extremely hard time. She has kept me updated all the way through my mortgage process, offered me great advice and found me a fantastic mortgage for my daughter and I. Sarah is not only professional but personable too. I would recommend Sarah to anyone who needed financial advice. During COVID this was an added stress but nothing was too much trouble and she was there every step of the way to support me.”

“Rob managed to secure me mortgages fast and easily on several occasions. He impressed me by getting both my wife and I a very challenging first time buyers mortgage when we were both self employed with only 1 years of accounts and my wife was on a visa. Strongly recommended.”

“I started my mortgage journey thinking I could never get a mortgage, well if I did it would be a long time due to a few mistakes I made back when I was a student. I finally came across Luke Grosse. After months of searching things couldn’t have gone smoother on his end, he got me a mortgage offer. Easy to talk to, straight forward, explained everything in detail while being patient. Couldn’t recommend Luke any higher as my experience with him was fantastic. Finally completed my purchase today and now I am a homeowner with my fiancé.”

“Jemma worked tirelessly to find us the best mortgage deal. Our case was not straightforward and she worked so hard to find the right mortgage for us and we are now living in our dream home all thanks to Jemma. She also sourced us the best life insurance policies and explained in depth the details, what we needed and why. Would highly recommend.”

“Without the help of Chris Kenny, none of this would have been possible. Chris went above and beyond by doing all the hard work in finding the best deal and representing me when working with the solicitors. I had full confidence in Chris and even had a laugh during the process too! I shall definitely be recommending Chris to others”

“We had a fantastic experience with Jonathan. He was extremely knowledgeable about the best mortgages for our situation. I went from leaving a high street bank in tears thinking I would have to wait years to be able to obtain a mortgage, to a phone call with Jonathan the following day reassuring me he would help me have the house of my dreams within the year. He 100% delivered on this promise and was there to support us throughout the journey. We moved into our new build home at the start of November and are absolutely elated. We are now customers for life!”

“Truly great service from the beginning till end. Communication was fantastic and he was very helpful and professionally explained the process throughout. Been messed around by other mortgage advisers making promises they couldn't deliver, Jason Pulsford CeMAP was up front and clear on what he could get me and true to his word! Highly recommend using them and will continue to use them if I need remortgage in future.”

“Their service was amazing from start to finish. I cannot fault any contact or dealings I have had with them. In particular, my case was assigned to Mr. Chris Kenny. Chris is so calm, knowledgeable and professional. I trusted him from the word go. I would recommend them to anyone in need of advice and help. It is not often nowadays that you can say this about an organisation and their people. Well done and thank you for your help and support with my mortgage.”

“The level of service that we received from Paul Clark and the team was absolutely first class. We tried three other brokers before we came across Paul and none of them could help us, however, from our first phone call discussion with Paul, we could tell he knows his stuff. He took the time to present information to us in a relaxed, friendly and professional manner and he has been absolutely amazing. We recommend him to all our friends and family.”

“Would like to thank Ben Patten for his fantastic service. We knew finding us a mortgage was going to be tricky, but he managed to find us the perfect one for our current circumstance which has meant we have been able to reserve our dream “forever home” A special thanks to Ben as he was there for us night and day with any queries we had and helped put our minds at rest!”

He was able to arrange a good deal for us and we were able to move into our dream house this autumn.”

“We would highly recommend Paul Coss, he has literally changed our lives! Both myself and my husband were in debt management plans, and really did not think we could remortgage. We wanted to do this in order to clear our debts and reduce our monthly outgoings. Not only has Paul helped us do this, we are also saving :) something we have not been able to do for some years.”

She has supported me every step of the way, and finally last week I got the keys to my house, and a cracking rate, which given my circumstances is brilliant. I would highly recommend Lynn!”
