TMA adds Newbury to its lender panel

TMA has added Newbury Building Society to its lender panel.

Members of TMA will now have access to the building society’s first-time buyer, remortgage, and shared ownership offerings.

In addition, the club’s advisers will also have access to self-employed, self-build, buy-to-let, and holiday-let options.

TMA senior product and business manager Rob McCoy comments: “Welcoming Newbury to our lender panel reinforces our ongoing commitment to cater for non-standard borrowers.

“With specialist lending actually becoming the new norm, it is our aim to equip advisers with a range of solutions to cater for this increasing pool of customers so they too can attain their homeownership goals.

“A common-sense approach to lending is imperative in today’s socioeconomic landscape.”

Newbury Building Society sales manager Karen Smith says: “Coupling TMA’s broker-centric approach with our own, we are delighted to be partnering with the club to expand and enhance our customer outreach, especially as more consumers find that mainstream lending is at arm’s length.

“Together, we will help more advisers ensure that the needs of those who do not fit the vanilla mould of traditional lending are met.”
