SimplyBiz Mortgages has announced that Darlington Building Society has joined its lender panel.
All SimplyBiz Mortgage Members will have direct access to Darlington’s range of mortgages. The criteria opportunities include self-employed and contractors, self-build (through Buildloan), acceptance of foreign currency and they will lend to the age of 85 on a repayment basis within England and Wales.
Martin Reynolds, CEO of SimplyBiz Mortgages, commented:
“We work with a number of the smaller building societies and have found that their approach to personalised underwriting is very refreshing. The criteria areas in which Darlington is particularly strong will be welcomed by our Members, and provide them with the personal touch they need. Darlington’s age limits and use of foreign currency will be very useful.”
Colin Fyfe, CEO at Darlington Building Society, added:
“We are always looking at how we can build out relationships with the wider intermediary community and the opportunity to work with SimplyBiz Mortgages is part of that strategy. Their compliance support was a crucial factor in our decision as we look to work within the directly authorised market.”
