Paradigm adds Dunfermline to panel

Dunfermline has become the latest lender to be added to the Paradigm Mortgage Services’ lender panel.

Paradigm members now have access to the society’s full range of mortgage products which include fixed, discount, and tracker rates, buy-to-let mortgages, standard variable rate mortgages, and shared ownership mortgages.

The addition of Dunfermline to the panel brings the number of lenders up to 38 covering the whole of market. Paradigm Mortgage Services has over 300 firms signed up as members and offers a unique proposition working in collaboration with both lenders and distributors.

John Coffield, head of Paradigm Mortgage Services, says: “We are delighted to welcome Dunfermline to the Paradigm Mortgage Services lender panel. Paradigm members continue to benefit from a growing lender panel which covers the whole of market and delivers quality products and competitive terms. The society’s mortgage range will no doubt appeal to many of our members given the wide range of options that it currently has available. In a market where distribution is king, the Society has clearly recognised the uniqueness of Paradigm and the growing number of firms that have signed up to our proposition. We look forward to working with the team at Dunfermline Building Society to maximise business and deliver ongoing value for their members as well as our members.”

David Gibb, national key account manager at Dunfermline, says: “As both companies operate in similar markets, this panel agreement with Paradigm enables the Society to continue our strategy of increasing quality business through closer relationships. I look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
