Together has partnered with mortgage club SimplyBiz Mortgages which has over 1,700 member firms.
At the same time, Together has confirmed Personal Touch as the latest broker network to partner with the lender, providing access to its appointed representative (AR) firms across the UK.
Across both of these Together will offer its range of residential mortgages, with loan sizes up to £1m, capital repayment and interest-only options, no valuation or lender’s legal fees and a 5-year fix with no early redemption charges.
Richard Tugwell, group intermediary relationship director at Together, said: “It’s an exciting time for us as we continue to expand, and we’re really pleased to be working with both SimplyBiz Mortgages and Personal Touch as we reach out to even more brokers across mainland UK.
“We take a common sense approach and consider each case individually, which enables us to deliver positive outcomes for customers, even in very complex cases – whether it’s a mortgage for a self-employed customer, an unusual property type, a customer with a less-than-perfect credit profile, or specific kinds of purchase such as shared ownership or right-to-buy. We can even help when there is a combination of these factors and we’re keen to get that message out more widely.”
Martin Reynolds, CEO at SimplyBiz Mortgages, added: “We support over 3,900 advisers, putting them at the heart of everything we do, so it’s essential for us that we’re offering them a broad range of products to suit different customer needs. Together is firmly established as a leader in the specialist finance sector and we’re really pleased to introduce them to our members.”
Vikki Jefferies, head of proposition at Personal Touch, concluded: “We’ve added Together to our panel of lenders so that our brokers have access to an even broader range of products and the common sense philosophy that will enable them to assist a wide variety of customers that may not fit the criteria of the mainstream lenders.”
SimplyBiz Mortgages and Personal Touch advisers will now have access to My Broker Venue – Together’s online portal – where they can submit cases and get a full instant decision-in-principle, with support on hand from the lender’s team of experts.
