Firm using similar name is causing confusion

From John Mawdsley

I would like to bring to your attention some confusion in the marketplace brought about by a third party.

The Mortgage Partnership has been trading since early 1997 and recently launched a broker support service (Mortgage Strategy October 20). This service has been designed to help those brokers wishing to prepare for direct authorisation.

We have no connection with another company of a similar name offering what purports to be a similar service that has been launched by Park Row.

We are mystified as to why anyone would want to use a name that has already led to confusion.

This at a time when clarity and transparency within the industry are of utmost importance.
