TMB unveiling redesigned site

Specialist lender The Mortgage Business has relaunched its intermediary website at www.t-m-b.co.uk.

The site, which is being relaunched at a Money Marketing IFA UK roadshow this month, displays the latest rates on all TMB&#39s mortgage products and payment protection products including self-certification, buy-to-let and flexible mortgages.

It has a news page, downloadable application forms, information on the broker enquiry sales team and a map of the UK listing its regional development managers.

As 98 per cent of the lender&#39s business comes from intermediaries, this is the focus of the site but it also includes a small section for consumers giving them a number to call for more information.

TMB has 16,000 intermediaries on its database and it expects a large number of these to use the site to assist with applications.

Applications cannot currently be completed online but the site is in its first stage of redevelopment and new features will be introduced gradually.

Managing director Bill Dudgeon says: “We talked to a lot of intermediaries in the development of our new website. The feedback was that they wanted something clear and easy to use, where they could access up-to-date information about our products and key contacts as well as being able to download application forms.

“TMB has embraced this feedback and produced a comprehensive and easy-to-use site that will complement our existing intermediary support resources.”
