Connect re-launches website

Apart from easier navigation and a simpler format, the site also provides rental calculators to help advisers work out how much their client can borrow for a buy-to-let mortgage with a particular lender or how much rent they would need to achieve in order to get the mortgage they want.

Kevin Ward, head of Connect Mortgage Club, said the website is an important virtual window for the business and it was important to refresh the visual appeal of the offering.

He said: “It is easy to forget that the immediate visual impact of an offering like ours is just as important as the new products and service we offer.

“We have redesigned the site to be easier to use and find the services brokers need. However, one of the things we were asked for specifically by introducers was to have the ability to calculate rental requirements for BTL mortgages, simply and effectively and that is precisely what we have done.

“The BTL market is very buoyant with great offerings from our panel lenders. This is a very good time to be involved in BTL and we can provide the umbrella for existing brokers and also those returning to the market through our AR scheme.”
