As an Approved Mortgage Company, TTMF’s first assignment was the granting of mortgages to persons benefiting from a housing project at the Diamond Vale Estate, Diego Martin. That estate was being developed by Homes International Development (T’dad) Limited.
Today, Diamond Vale is a well-populated and high-demand location in the northwest. The provision of mortgages was also extended to persons who were buying homes in housing developments, such as Trincity Housing Estate – Tacarigua, Lange Park – Chaguanas, Santa Rosa Heights – Arima, D’Abadie Development – D’Abadie and the original ‘Westmoorings’ houses.
Over the years, TTMF has increased its share in the mortgage market through agreements with the then National Housing Authority, now the Trinidad and Tobago Housing Development Corporation (HDC) and the Trinidad Sugar Estates Limited (now Caroni Lands). Under these agreements, mortgage financing was extended to purchasers of homes constructed by these companies for a specific time. By partnering with other companies, TTMF has been able to go beyond the boundaries of the Housing Act.
The Company continues to work passionately at providing mortgage financing to focus on fulfilling its potential of being the Lender of 1st choice for residential mortgages. Together with a highly skilled and knowledgeable team, it keeps step with the needs of both its current mortgagors and those of the wider public as it achieves its mission toward all would-be home owners: to ‘make home ownership an easy and rewarding experience’.
