Brokers will need to resubmit applications via Beacon’s online Gravity system or over the phone/fax.
Sue Cox, head of intermediary sales at Beacon Mortgage Packaging, says: “If the applications have already been lodged there is nothing really we can do, but what we can do is carry forward DIPs that have been left in the lurch by the Solent collapse.
“We think that there may well be hundreds of brokers out there hit by the administration who are uncertain how to move forward with their cases.
“By coming to us, they will have access to the same products, with the additional advantage that we are part of the Beacon Group, which provides us with greater financial stability in the current changeable marketplace.“
Cox says Beacon has already received a large number of calls from brokers who had satellite arrangements with Solent who were now looking for alternative arrangements.
She adds: “There is undoubtedly going to be considerable fallout from what has happened at Solent and we are only too happy to provide what assistance we can.”
Beacon Mortgage Packaging is offering to take forward mortgage applications that have lapsed as a consequence of the administration of Solent Mortgage Services.
