Mortgage packagers | Specialist Knowledge
Our team has dedicated Broker Support Advisers, each specialising in a specific market sector. These experts spend their entire day researching and analysing lender offerings within their niche, providing invaluable insights to advisers like yourself. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and resources needed to effectively assist your clients in navigating the intricacies of the market and securing the best possible solutions for their unique needs.
Full support, but you are in control
When we Package for you, this means that as well as assisting you with finding the right lending solution, we will also be processing the paperwork for you and helping you to present the application to the lender in its best possible light for success. We will not have any direct contact with your client at all, so you will remain responsible for the advice of your client and are in control at all times.
Exclusive and Semi exclusive products and criteria
Our relationships with lenders mean we can often offer you access to exclusive mortgage products/criteria from them that you cannot obtain by going directly. Some lenders, particularly newer lenders to the market, do not have the resources to allow all advisers to submit applications directly. Their products are distributed through companies like Connect, allowing you to still take advantage of using that lender.
Keep all the broker commission
In most cases, you will receive the same lender procuration fee that a lender would pay directly, even when using Connect to package the application for you. This is because the lender pays an additional allowance to Connect to cover the cost of marketing, distributing and processing the applications on their behalf. See our commission pages for more details about the commission payable from each lender and for each product type. We pay commissions to Advisers within 3 working days of receipt from the lender.
24/7 Case tracking
Our online case tracking tool will allow you to see how the application is progressing at any time that suits you so you can accurately update your clients.
Mortgage packagers | Referral options
There may be cases where you do not have the correct Adviser permissions to be responsible for the client’s advice or, due to knowledge or time constraints, you would prefer to refer the client to another Adviser to look after the client on your behalf.
