Faster mortgages from B&W

Bristol & West are introducing and paying for local search indemnity for all remortgages from this week.

B & W says the move will cut out the process of waiting for a local search and drastically speed up the remortgage process.

The insurance premium will be paid for by B&W so there will be no cost to the borrower.

B&W group product manager lending Dominic Toller says: “It is good for brokers as it could speed up remortgaging time considerably and it&#39s a great deal for customers as it will make the process smoother and cheaper.”
