Coventry Building Society and Godiva Mortgages have joined the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries as associate members.

Darin Landon, head of sales at Coventry, says this is a further demonstration of the Coventry’s firm commitment to intermediaries.

Robert Sinclair, director of AMI, says: “We are delighted that Coventry Building Society has chosen to show their support for the sector by joining AMI. The support of forward thinking lenders such as the Coventry allows AMI to continue its work supporting the intermediary community.

“I look forward to developing closer links with the team at the Coventry and working together to develop a more sustainable mortgage market”.
