The Melton Building Society and its subsidiary MBS Lending have joined the Mortgage Intelligence lender panel. The new partnership will see both network and mortgage club members given access to the Society’s flexible approach to lending and niche product range.

The Melton offers a range of residential mortgages up to 95% LTV for purchase and remortgage, alongside niche lending products which include buy-to-let, holiday let, self-build, shared ownership and short-term lending, with credit repair mortgages offered through the MBS Lending brand.

Nicola Alvarez, director of sales and marketing at the Melton, said: “Our flexible approach to lending offers a compelling alternative for Mortgage Intelligence intermediaries with personal underwriting supported by a dedicated broker support team and innovative niche products to meet the varying needs of customers.”

Sally Laker, managing director at Mortgage Intelligence, added: “We are delighted to have further enhanced our lending panel by adding The Melton Building Society and its subsidiary MBS Lending. These latest additions further demonstrates our commitment to delivering a competitive and comprehensive panel, which is reflective of the market and the needs of both our Appointed Representatives and Directly Authorised members.”
