This innovative special promotion not only offers benefits to the consumer, but it also gives brokers an opportunity to increase their business levels by making this money-saving opportunity known to their new mortgage clients.

Intermediaries should take note of the limited period for which this offer is open, and make the most of it by marketing it to potential customers without delay.
