Unleash Advice adds Cheshire Mortgage Corporation to panel

Unleash Advice Partnership has added the Cheshire Mortgage Corporation to its lending panel in a tie-up that will allow broker partners to submit business direct to CMC.

Derbyshire-based Unleash Advice was set up by the former executive chairman of Mint Andy Adewale and provides compliance, administrative, and marketing support to brokers.

CMC is the residential mortgage lending arm of Blemain groups and will consider clients with any status.

It provides regulated mortgage contracts, shared ownership, owner-occupied semi-commercial mortgages and bridging finance.

All income sources including self-cert and DSS benefits and any property type are accepted.

Gary Bailey, director of CMC, says: “CMC maintains a strong appetite for new business and we are confident that our criteria will compliment Unleash Advice’s current panel and will prove to be of benefit to its members.”

Andy Adewale, chief executive at Unleash Advice, says: “We have always focussed on providing our members with a service that allows them to operate as independently as they choose, and this includes giving them access to products that cater for needs outside of mainstream lending.

“CMC serves a wide variety of residential lending requirements and as such they are the ideal panel addition for the current climate, allowing our members to maximise on the opportunities available to them and assist more clients.”
