M2-D&P double offer

They are offering a refund of valuation up to the value of £270 on mortgages from, Kensington, London Mortgage Company; Mortgages plc; Preferred Mortgages; and, SPML.


They are also offering a free mortgage lead for any case that goes to valuation for any of their lender partners.   The leads are sourced through the leading personal finance website


Vanessa Blount, general manager of m2-d&p, says:”Normally offers from packagers just benefit one party, either the introducer or the client.

“Part of being a competitive packager is providing incentives that help grow the market. This double offer is the latest in a long line of such deals that brokers who use m2-d&p have benefited from. This offer, like all those that preceded it, and all those to come, was developed by listening to the brokers that give advice on mortgages and developing incentives to make their jobs easier.”
