Platform launches new product range

Platform has added more products to its range, which now includes a bonus discount scheme on non conforming loans and widened criteria on remortgages.

All non conforming cases received by 1st June 2004 will receive an extra 0.25 per cent for the discount term. Unlimited capital raising is now available for remortgaging for any purpose up to scheme limits on the whole range, and discounts now run from completion, and are not end dated.

Director of sales and marketing Guy Batchelor says: “In 2004 our objective is to increase our market share and lending volumes in the intermediary specialist mortgage market. We will do this by offering attractive products, widening our product ranges and continually reviewing the level of service we provide.”
