Four new lenders join Mortgage 2000 mortgage club

The Mortgage 2000 mortgage club announced yesterday that four new lenders have joined its now 50 strong lender panel. The four new lenders are Scottish Widows Bank, Manchester Building Society, Norwich and Peterborough Building Society and Lloyds TSB Scotland.

m2-mortgage club national sales manager Allan Collinson believes that the five new lenders will bring with them competitive fee offerings and the promise of keenly-priced exclusive products which he says will give brokers and their clients a truly comprehensive choice across all marketing sectors.

The lenders in the m2 club, which has one of the largest direct-to-lender business panels, are now responsible for over 95 per cent of the volume mortgage lending market.
