Kent Reliance for Intermediaries: the lender for specialist cases

By 26th October 2021October 28th, 2021Blog

This past year or so has brought a lot of uncertainty to the mortgage market; and with that in mind, the proportion of specialist investors seeking experienced, professional advice is likely to increase at a similar rate.

Now is the time where trusted advisers can make an impact, providing solutions to complex and challenging cases that high street lenders may struggle to help with.

That’s where Kent Reliance for Intermediaries could help.

Along with our flexibility, common-sense approach and willingness to lend, we understand it can be difficult to find the right answers, especially in a market that’s constantly changing, growing and throwing up new challenges.

With each application, we seek to offer brokers a personal style of service, providing them with the support they need in order to complete cases and ultimately, ensure we keep clients happy.

How do we do this? Here are three ways we can help you solve your next case.

Individual assessments to crack tough cases

Manual underwriting allows us to consider each loan on a case-by-case basis. Providing numerous benefits for brokers and their clients, they believe a human approach can provide better solutions.

And here’s why:

  • Each mortgage we receive is individually underwritten. That way, if your case doesn’t fit our criteria perfectly, we’re well placed to discuss it through with you and explore other options.
  • Each member of our underwriting team has extensive market knowledge allowing us to make fully informed decisions on your cases.
  • Alongside a dedicated business development manager, one of our experienced (and very human) underwriters will take personal responsibility throughout your case.
  • When it comes to criteria, we individually assess each case – rather than depending on algorithms and rigid formulae that can hinder approval of a complex case. This means we could help where high street lenders may not be able to.

Online criteria guide to help you find answers

Have you tried our online criteria guide? It offers a complete, searchable overview of our latest buy to let and residential criteria, to help you solve your most challenging cases.

The guide aims to simplify the process for brokers when it comes to sourcing the relevant criteria for their specialist cases. So, whether it’s limited company buy to let or a residential case with complex income, our online criteria guide has the answers you need – all at the click of a button.

Nationwide specialist support to solve your cases

However, we believe criteria is only the starting point of a conversation. With our flexible underwriting and individual case assessments, we’re more than happy to discuss your cases with you in person or over the phone, even if they don’t quite fit our criteria.

The best way to get the information you need is to contact your local business development manager first. Our talented team is always on hand to speak with you, ready to share their product knowledge and detailed understanding of the mortgage industry.
