Vida Homeloans launches buy-to-let hub
Specialist mortgage lender Vida Homeloans has launched its buy-to-let hub, powered by eTech.
Brokers will have the ability to view all live applications on one dashboard, while having the option to create new property portfolios based on previous application data. This allows the broker to create duplicate jobs.
Louisa Sedgwick, director of sales, mortgages, Vida Homeloans, said: “Evolving technology is improving the broker experience and has been a key driving force behind changing the face of the industry.
“At Vida, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our offering, enabling brokers to do their jobs in the most efficient and time saving way.
“This new buy-to-let hub, powered by eTech, includes creative and innovative features that will enhance the overall experience for brokers dealing with buy-to-let portfolios.
“Specialist lending doesn’t have to be complicated, and the industry must work together to equip brokers with the right tools to drive their business forward and help those customers who are underserved by the high street banks.”
Data can also be imported from Excel using the broker’s own template or the Vida Homeloans Property Portfolio Schedule.
Current Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ratings are displayed against each property portfolio with the rating readily available to the broker or landlord to view.
The launch of the hub coincides with its ’Every Mortgage Tells a Story’ campaign, which aims to help brokers identify specialist buy-to-let portfolio customers and satisfy their complex requirements.
Liz Syms, owner of Connect Mortgages and Connect Intermediaries, added: “The buy-to-let hub from eTech improves the time it takes to underwrite a client’s portfolio, resulting in speedier applications.
“It is therefore great to see Vida now offering this option as it demonstrates their commitment to improving the process for brokers and their clients alike.”
