For Brokers

We are happy to take leads with applicants details and then take the case right through to completion. This ensures the client buys into our expertise and can ask us direct any questions they have; in addition it speeds up the process and increases drawdown volumes.

For most introducers we act as brokers- looking after the applicant right through the case and copying the introducer in on all key aspects as we progress. We will confirm the money to be paid on completion and this will form an agreed percentage of both any money received from the lender and any success fee charged to the applicant. We remain involved right through to completion- chasing valuers/solicitors etc until the case draws as quickly as it can.

For some approved introducers we offer Packaging support- finding the best lenders for the applicant and leaving the introducer to liaise with the applicant. Here we share an agreed proportion of the fee we receive from the lender.
