Abbey plans to verify all Trigold-listed products

Abbey for Intermediaries has pledged to automatically verify all its products on Trigold’s sourcing system to ensure brokers receive up-to-date and accurate information.

The move means all new Abbey deals listed on Trigold’s system will be automatically verified as soon as they are posted.

The lender says its action is in response to brokers’ concerns about the accuracy and timeliness of products on sourcing systems.

Ricky Okey, managing director of Abbey for Intermediar- ies, says: “In 2008, we will continue to work hard on a number of initiatives due to come online over the next 12 months to further support brokers and their clients.”

Danny Lovey, principal of The Mortgage Practitioner, says: “It’s good to have a guarantee but Abbey’s website is easy enough to use and you can always get the most up-to-date information directly from the horse’s mouth.

“Using lenders’ websites is the only way to be certain.”
