Peter Curran will return to Lloyds’ broker role soon

Peter Curran will shortly return to his previous position as head of intermediary distribution at Lloyds Banking Group following his secondment to Lloyds TSB’s branch network.

There had been talk in the industry that Curran’s three-month placement could become permanent.

But a spokeswoman says: “An appointment has now been made for the job Curran was seconded to do. There will be a short period during which he will hand over to the new person and after that he’ll be returning to his old role.”

Meanwhile, BM Solutions last week launched a dedicated website, www.btlexperts.co.uk to provide brokers and their buy-to-let clients with information on becoming a landlord such as regulation, income and tax implications, letting agent services and charges, and rental calculators.
