Award‐winning mortgage lender expands offering to Scotland

Darlington Building Society, which was named Best Specialist Mortgage Provider at the British Bank Awards earlier this year, has extended its range of residential mortgages to be available throughout mainland Scotland as part of its Darlington Intermediaries offering.

The Society is passionate about ensuring each mortgage application is assessed individually by people, not computers, and this personal underwriting service allows it to consider each case thoroughly, taking into consideration all circumstances and income, no matter how complex.

Darren Ditchburn, Chief Customer Officer said: “Over the summer period we have been working with a number of mortgage intermediaries in Scotland and are excited to extend our mortgage offering through the Legal & General Mortgage Club.

“The Scottish property market has performed well in recent years and despite economic uncertainties, the market remains robust. Borrower circumstances are becoming more complex, with strong growth in contractor and self-employment circumstance, as well as people living and working for longer.

“Given this changing environment, our personalised approach to mortgage lending is perfect to support Scottish borrowers in achieving their home ownership aspirations.”

The Legal & General Mortgage Club prides itself on adding value and working closely with lenders making the process of finding the right mortgage better for advisers.

Danny Belton, Head of Lender Relationships at the Legal & General Mortgage Club said: “It’s great that through working in partnership with Darlington Building Society, Legal & General Mortgage Club members in Scotland now have access to some much‐needed products and criteria, that will provide excellent opportunities for advisers and their customers.”
