Secured loan service from LIME

Lifetime Insurance Mortgage Experts now offers a secured loan service, in partnership with Norton Finance.

Secured lending grew in 2005 to an all time high of 8.9bn in August, and the number of people choosing a secured loan as opposed to a further advance or remortgage has also risen. LIME says many clients are tied into their mortgages and, as redemption penalties rise, secured loans are a realistic alternative.

LIME members and clients can receive training on secured loans and will have access to a broker services team that offers support and updates on cases.
