Nationwide launches online mortgage applications

Nationwide Building Society is offering its customers the facility to complete their mortgage application online.

Applying direct to the Society over the internet, customers can choose their product and reserve the deal.

Nationwide executive director Stuart Bernau said: “Ten years ago when we launched the first internet banking facility, we signed up five thousand people by the end of the year. Now we have nearly three million users registered for our service. This increased demand clearly shows the way people manage their money is changing and it seems only right that we allow them to arrange their biggest financial commitment online too.”
