Connect for Intermediaries strikes deals with Zephyr and Fleet

Connect for Intermediaries is now packaging for new lender Zephyr, which was launched last month by Computershare Loan Services.

The firm will also package for Fleet Mortgages, which has widened its buy-to-let range to the wider market.

Zephyr is now accepting both individual and limited company applications, with rates starting from 2.69 per cent.

Meanwhile, Fleet Mortgages has changed its standard product rental calculation to 125 per cent of the rental income at 3.89 per cent, and now offers free valuations.

Connect for Intermediaries chief executive Liz Syms says: “The BTL market is still buoyant both for purchase and remortgage and these new rates and terms will be a welcome addition to landlords be they individual landlords, landlords with a portfolio of properties or those who hold properties in a limited company.

“Both lenders will be a welcome addition to every broker with buy-to-let clients and our specialist market placement desk is available to help them take advantage of this.”

Zephyr Homeloans head of sales Peter Charge adds: “We are delighted to be working with Connect as one of our key intermediary partners. We look forward to developing a strong relationship with them going forward as we grow the Zephyr Homeloans brand.”
