TMA Club adds Darlington Building Society to lender panel

TMA Club has added Darlington Building Society to its lender panel, giving TMA members immediate access to Darlington’s product range.

Darlington Building Society offers solutions for traditional and more complex lending, including fixed and variable rate mortgages as well as buy-to-let.

It offers an entirely personal approach to mortgage underwriting, considering each application on an individual basis with no credit scoring. This provides opportunities for categories such as older borrowers, employees paid in foreign currency, self- employed applicants, and those on fixed term contracts.

Other lenders recently added to TMA’s lender panel include Saffron for Intermediaries and Leek United Building Society.

TMA senior product and business manager Rob McCoy (pictured) says: “With customer demand growing by the day, it is vital that we ensure our lender panel accommodates and supports all types of customers. We aim to enable a whole spectrum of borrowers to gain access to funding and with the addition of Darlington Building Society, we can accomplish this.

“This new addition will strengthen our ability to reach a wider customer base, including those who are self-employed or have more complex circumstances. We will continue to work hard to maintain TMA’s position as at the forefront of the intermediary market through offering what our brokers desire the most – choice.”

Darlington Building Society business development manager Julie Bourne says: “We are looking forward to working with TMA as we aim to provide those customers with more complex circumstances with the mortgage they need. As less and less customers fit the one-size-fits-all mortgage approach, TMA recognises this, providing advisers with access to a wider range of mortgage products, suitable for individual needs.”
