Specialist packager AToM has added Bluestone Mortgages to its panel of lenders.

An AToM statement says that the firm sees increasing demand from brokers to place cases that have been rejected by high street lender’s credit score decisioning systems.

AToM managing director Dale Jannels says: “It’s therefore good to see new lenders come to market having thought about criteria gaps and providing solutions.

“Bluestone will ignore defaults and CCJ’s if the amount is under £250, regardless of number or when it occurred. They also ignore any default or CCJ over 36 months old and accept four or more defaults registered within the last 36 months with no maximum amounts to limit their decision.”

Bluestone Mortgages managing director Matt Andrews says: “This is an exciting opportunity and we are delighted to work with AToM. Their culture and drive to support advisors is very much aligned to our own.”
