Vantage Finance has added Buckinghamshire Building Society to its newly launched specialist mortgage packaging division’s lender panel.
Vantage is also offering intermediaries and clients access to an exclusive three-year, fixed-rate mortgage from Buckinghamshire Building Society. Available to both the employed and self-employed, it offers a fixed rate of 2.09% until April 2018. Offered on a repayment basis, the product is for owner-occupiers looking to purchase or remortgage. With a minimum loan amount of £100,000 and a maximum LTV of 70%, the minimum property value is £150,000.
The division, launched last December, has been created to offer intermediaries specialist mortgages in both the residential and buy-to-let markets.
Buckinghamshire BS combines mainstream pricing with a personal service, and its commitment to understanding clients’ varying circumstances while still focusing on the prime end of the market makes it a natural fit for the packager.
Julie Hanif, business development manager at Buckinghamshire Building Society, said: “Buckinghamshire Building Society is delighted to join forces with Vantage Finance, an established, highly regarded company in the commercial sector which is now building its residential lending portfolio in the Home Counties and further afield.
“We’re keen to support Vantage on this project as we are a long-established residential lender and wanted to help launch a competitive, fixed-rate product to support borrowers. As a mutual building society owned by its members, we assess mortgages with individual underwriting rather than relying solely on credit scoring, which creates a service with a personal perspective.”
“By continuing to expand our lender panel, we’re ensuring that Vantage remains ideally placed to offer our brokers and clients the best products available for their specialist, often complex, needs,” said Lucy Hodge (pictured), director of Vantage.
“We’re particularly excited to welcome Buckinghamshire BS to the panel as they continue to develop and expand their product offering this year. We share a commitment to delivering a high-quality service and already have a strong relationship, helped by the fact they are located just minutes from our own Gerrards Cross-based office.”
