Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a Professional Consultants Certificate?

If you have built or converted a property and:

  1. You wish to sell the property and your purchaser needs a mortgage, or

  2. You wish to rent the property and raise a Buy-to-Let mortgage to release equity,

then you must ensure that it was built or converted under a building standards indemnity scheme acceptable to mortgage lenders. Mortgage Lenders will generally only lend on a newly built or newly converted property where the property is covered by a warranty scheme or UK Finance Professional Consultants Certificate (PCC).

Is the PCC an Architects Certificate?


UK Finance has created the PCC on behalf of the banks to formalise and standardise the certification of newly built or newly converted residential property.

The UK Finance standard PCC certification needs to be administered and signed off by a professional consultant such as an Architect (who must be registered with the Architects Registration Board - ARB) in order for it to be valid.

It was formerly known through the construction industry as an Architects Certificate, but this no longer applies.

Which lenders accept the PCC?

The majority of the mainstream residential mortgage lenders accept the PCC. You can find the current list of lenders by viewing the UK Finance Mortgage Lenders' Handbook.
