Kensington launches new application portal

The system, which is fully MMR compliant, has a number of brand new features, including document uploads, online fee payments, essential information at DIP, streamlined process and visuals and improved case tracking.

Brokers can start using the new application portal immediately using their existing Kensington login details, while new intermediaries will be able to register for the system quickly and easily.

Brokers who wish to track old applications, or complete an application where they have already obtained a Decision in Principle will be able to log into the previous portal, which is now closed to all new applications, using their existing password.

Alex Hammond, head of marketing and communications at Kensington, said: “Recent research by IMLA found that the main thing intermediaries want from lenders is a better application system.

“So we have invested in improving our application portal, introducing document uploads, online fee payment, streamlined process and visuals and improved case tracking.

“In short, it’s an application for an easier life for brokers who submit business to Kensington.

“As an intermediary only lender we recognise that we need to work in partnership with brokers to provide the right products to their clients.

“On our side of this partnership we are committed to continuing to review our products and processes to make improvements where we can and we are looking forward to announcing a number of new initiatives in the coming days and weeks.”
