Bank of Ireland introduces online offer service

Bank of Ireland UK has launched a new online offer service for brokers.

From today, mortgage offers will be available for brokers to view and download online via Bank of Ireland UK’s mortgage application system.

The system means brokers no longer need to wait for paper copies. Once the offer has been produced, brokers will receive an email to say their client’s case has gone to offer. The broker can then log in to the online application system and download a PDF version of the offer letter. As well as receiving an online offer, hard copies will also be sent to the client and their solicitor.

Bank of Ireland UK director of sales Alison Pallett says: “At Bank of Ireland UK, we’re continuously working in partnership with our brokers to get their feedback and make their lives easier. Online offers are just one of the ways we’re looking to streamline the process.”
