Castle Trust has appointed James Neave as its new head of lending.
Neave joins from CoreLogic Solutions, where he was managing director. At CoreLogic, Neave was involved in the development of mortgage fraud software which supports underwriting and credit decisions. Prior to this he was head of valuation services for Rightmove.co.uk.
He will be responsible for the fraud detection systems that are put in place to support the firm’s partnership mortgages.
Chief executive Sean Oldfield says: “We are dedicated to responsible lending both in terms of fraud prevention and ensuring only responsible homebuyers take out a partnership mortgage, so James’ experience in this field will be invaluable.”
