Some mortgage brokers were unable to complete their applications yesterday and the system was running slowly but problems have now been resolved.
A spokesperson for NatWest Intermediary Solutions says: “We have encountered an issue with our web site over the last 24 hours that resulted in a slowing down of the system and some brokers being unable to complete their applications online.
“Firstly I would like to apologise for the inconvenience that this will have caused and thank them for their patience. I am happy to report that we have fixed the issue and the web site has been operating normally from yesterday afternoon.
“We kept brokers fully informed of the situation with messaging on our site and on our phone lines. We have experienced an increase in inbound calls as a result but have been able to fulfil the vast majority of these calls.”
