SimplyBiz Mortgages adds Fleet to lender panel

SimplyBiz Mortgages has added buy-to-let lender Fleet Mortgages to its panel of lenders.

All members of the club will now have access to Fleet’s full mortgage range.

SimplyBiz Mortgages chief executive Martin Reynolds says: “During 2015, we will continue to see the buy-to-let sector grow, with more new entrants to the market.

“Creating a new partnership with Fleet Mortgages will offer our members even greater choice within the buy-to-let sector and offer new avenues for our members to help their clients. We look forward to working with them to help develop their proposition further.”

Fleet Mortgages chief executive Bob Young says: “As SimplyBiz Mortgages continues to expand its range of offerings to members, in line with the growing market, we are thrilled to be joining its impressive panel of approved lenders. We believe that our different approach to underwriting and how we view the landlord will be especially popular amongst members as they seek alternative options.

“We have always felt that SimplyBiz Mortgages’ comprehensive compliance proposition would offer Fleet Mortgages an excellent avenue in expanding our directly authorised distribution and look forward to working with the team.”
