Marketing and PR director Lynsey Sweales says many landlords are turning to brokers in current market conditions.
She says: “Now is a time when many landlords are using brokers to source buy-to-let mortgage finance. It can be difficult to find out about rates available and brokers are proving even more popular in a time when the mortgage market is contracting.
“We are also finding that some landlords are securing mortgage offers three to four months before their tie-in periods are up so they can secure a competitive rate and protect themselves.”
Sweales says the firm is relatively unaffected by the recent spate of providers withdrawing products with little notice due to the efficiency of its systems. She says: “We package for a number of lenders and have on-site underwriters, so we are able to process a case as quickly as possible.”
