Complete Mortgage and Loan Services has added Salt, the Derbyshires specialist lending brand, to its lender panel

A Salt underwriter will work in-house at Completes premises enabling fast decisions and service.

This latest addition brings Completes packaged lender panel to a total of 31 lenders.

Complete will be offering Salts innovative range of sub-prime and self-cert Swiss-Franc LIBOR trackers.

Salts five year Swiss LIBOR tracker is only available to Complete and a select group of other packagers and has interest rates starting at 4.79% on prime deals and going through to 6.64% on fastrack unlimited deals up to 80% LTV.

A 2% cashback bonus is paid to the borrower at the end of year three, providing all mortgage payments have been met within that period.

Salts three year Swiss Franc LIBOR tracker also has rates from 4.79%.

Both these trackers are residential, owner occupied self-certification and sub-prime products denominated in pound sterling tracking the Swiss Franc three-month LIBOR.

Salts core range of two and three year fixed rate mortgages, together with two year Bank Base Rate trackers will also be available via Complete.

Tristan Pile, head of sales and marketing at Complete, says: Since its launch in November last year, Salt has impressed the market with some of the most competitive sub-prime and self-cert rates on offer, with products ranging from prime self-cert through to unlimited adverse providing a wide range of solutions for most clients needs.

We are very happy to now be part of Salts limited packager panel, and to be able to offer its products, together with the benefits of an in-house Salt underwriter, to our brokers.

Tony Capon, head of sales at Salt, says: We are delighted to welcome Complete Mortgage and Loan Services on board.

It is one of the most well respected and quality packagers within the market and the addition of it to our packager panel will further strengthen both its and Salts proposition.
