Tracking online from Scottish Life

Packager Scottish Life Mortgages is offering an online tracking service which allows brokers to monitor the progress of loan applications.

The service, linked to SLM&#39s in-house system, provides brokers with a caseload summary and a status check of every case submitted 24 hours a day.

SLM says brokers need only submit one application form for each borrower – which will be accepted by all the lenders on its panel, including Bank of Ireland, Bank of Scotland, Birmingham Midshires, Royal Bank of Scotland and UCB Home Loans.

Brokers can register by emailing their details to slm@scottishlife.co.uk and visit SLM&#39s test site – set up to help them navigate the system – at www.slmortgages.co.uk.

Chief executive Andrew Preston says: “The mortgage tracker will be a valuable tool for our introducers. Because it is internet-based, it will provide brokers with access at any time of day or night to meet their clients&#39 needs.”
