Mortgage Intelligence adds Marsden Building Society to its panel

Marsden Building Society and Mortgage Intelligence have partnered up to provide Appointed Representative members with their range of Lending Solutions. Marsden’s Lending Solution pools together a range of mortgage products that offer something a little different; Residential, Older Borrowers, Lending to Professionals and Buy to Let.

As well as providing a competitive product range, Mortgage Intelligence brokers have direct access to the Marsden’s intermediary team who are always available to speak to a broker about a case that they’re struggling to place. With individual underwriting and no credit scoring, the Society is able to take a more ‘common sense’ approach to a client’s circumstance.

Heather Crinion, General Manager (Operations) at Marsden Building Society and responsible for the Society’s intermediary distribution said, “Mortgage Intelligence’s approach aligns very much with our own. A passion for personal service and high standards mean we are looking forward to working with their advisers. They will have access to our full intermediary range including our Older Borrower products which is one of our innovative lending solutions for the over 55’s; giving those that are in or approaching retirement the ability to continue to borrow money against their property. Our products ensure that age is no longer an issue for borrowers who have retired and are in receipt of pension income, allowing them access to an interest only or repayment mortgage for their home.”

“We look forward to working with Mortgage Intelligence and its members to support them with our Lending Solutions. Our expert Intermediary team will be available to support members with product and criteria knowledge to find the right solution for both members and their clients.”

Sally Laker from Mortgage Intelligence said, “A key focus for Mortgage Intelligence throughout 2016 has been developing a diverse lending panel that is reflective of the market and the needs of our advisers. We feel the addition of Marsden Building Society, a lender that prides itself on delivering service and innovation to intermediaries, is yet another positive step towards achieving this goal.”
