Imperial Homes Mortgage Bank Limited is a Mortgage Bank duly licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria to undertake mortgage banking and related services. It was originally incorporated in 1992 as Citizens Savings and Loans Limited. But the name was changed in 1997 to New Patriot Building Society Limited. Guaranty Trust Bank plc acquired the company in August 2007 as a wholly owned subsidiary and changed its name to GTHomes Limited to reflect its relationship with GTBank. Imperial Homes Mortgage Bank Limited then commenced operation in January 2008.
In 2010 the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) reviewed the Universal Banking Model which had governed Nigerian banking since 2000 and banks were required to organize as either mono-line businesses or to register under a holding company arrangement. Guaranty Trust bank Limited decided to divest from all its subsidiaries including GTHomes.
