MSN adds eight lenders to panel

Mortgage Support Network has added eight lenders to its panel of premier partners, paying some of the highest procuration fees available.

The company says that while MSN has already confirmed to its existing members that appointed representatives the ability to access every lender and not a panel.

However, it says it will continue to work closely with its premier partners to bring our members the highest procuration fees possible and exclusive deals where available.

Peter Ransome, sales director at MSN, says: “The same applies to members who go direct to the FSA and utilise the comprehensive mortgage, life, general insurance and compliance services available to members of Mortgage Support Direct.”

The lenders have been added to both their direct and packaged submission routes and take the number of Premier Partners to over 20.

Jason Graham, managing director at MSN, says: “The company has no intention of trying to create a panel of 40 plus lenders as it will offer access to every lender whichever route they take through regulation. The lenders that have been added are the core lenders used by members and only a small number of other premier partners will be added.”
