Complete launches The Complete Deal

Complete Mortgage and Loan Services has launched The Complete Deal with LMS Conveyancing.

The deal offers free valuations when used in conjunction with LMS however brokers not wishing to use the combined offer can still benefit from reduced cost valuations.

Charges for legal and valuation services are on a sliding scale.

Tristan Pile, head of sales and marketing Complete, says: “We are delighted to offer The Complete Deal to brokers, allowing them low cost access to conveyancing and legal services that can be passed on to their customers.

“The new service underlines our approach of offering brokers an added value service, rather than simply giving them access to our panel lenders. We are confident that The Complete Deal will help brokers to generate more business, while the market continues to experience interesting times.”

Tim Sant, head of corporate accounts of LMS, adds: “The Complete Deal is highly innovative, offering great value to the client and shows that Complete continues to lead the way in its drive to pass on value added services to its clients.”
