Professional Package Home Loans
Professional Mortgage Package loans (Pro Pack) came about in the late 1980’s. Initially, these Professional Package Loans were introduced by major banks to customers who were part of a professional association like doctors, engineers, accountants and solicitors. After 1999, some lenders began to offer Pro Pack Loans to customers based on their overall total borrowings.
