A no-lose situation on transfers

From my recent experience of retention products and fees to brokers, I confirm that, if done properly, I think it puts the broker and client in a no-lose situation.

I have recently reviewed three clients with BM Solutions and nine Halifax cases. Once I have obtained the client requirements, it is very easy using Trigold to compare the best remortgage product to the existing lender transfer product range.

Three elected for transfer products and nine moved to a new lender when the transfer product range was not competitive. The client is happy and I get paid either way.
