Darlington BS joins Paradigm lender panel

Darlington Building Society has joined the lender panel of Paradigm Financial Advisers, the network service for ARs.

Darlington’s mortgage products will now be available to PFA member firms who can access the mutual’s range which includes discount, fixed and tracker rates.

The mutual will work with PFA members to ensure a quality service to both advisers and their clients.

Paradigm says its members will also benefit from competitive proc fees offered by the Darlington.

John Coffield, head of Paradigm Mortgage Services, says it is vital that our AR firms have access to a range of providers and products.

He says: “While there are a small number of lenders conducting the majority of mortgage business at present, there are also a sizeable number of smaller lenders who remain active in the market with some highly competitive products.”

David Copland, Marketing & Sales Controller at Darlington Building Society, says: “Although we may not be one of the biggest mortgage lenders we do offer a personal service and AR firms will be dealing with real people where relationships matter.  

“We don’t credit score so by dealing with Darlington Building Society Paradigm firms can avoid that ‘computer says no’ mentality.”
