Complete added to HomeLoan Partnership panel

Complete Mortgage and Loan Services has been added to the packager panel of HomeLoan Partnership.

The arrangement gives the network’s 100+ member firms access to Complete’s panel of lenders, online decision in principle, 24/7 case tracking, generic application and on-site underwriters.

Tristan Pile, sales and marketing director of Complete, says: “In the current lending climate we are continuously striving to offer brokers the widest possible range of products combined with excellent technology and service standards.

“We are delighted to become one of Homeloan Partnerships approved packagers. We have recently retained packaging with Platform , Beacon First National & igroup plus we offer Free Valuations via The Complete Deal which will give HomeLoan Partnership members plenty of reasons to use us.

Martin Cave, managing director of HomeLoan Partnership, adds: “As a network we have never wanted in house packaging. Instead we give our brokers access to a panel comprising four national packagers selected for their particular areas of expertise.

“Of particular importance in today’s difficult mortgage market is the need for our brokers to have access to a reliable mortgage placement desk.

“Complete fulfilled all of our requirements, and we are delighted to welcome them to our packager panel. We are confident that the new arrangement will deliver a top quality service to our increasing numbers of ARs.”
