MAB strategic alliance is a ‘boost for brokers’

The new relationship between MAB and SortRefer will bring about significant technological improvements to the mortgage network’s conveyancing operation – and make life considerably easier for the 700 intermediaries who use its services.

SortRefer forms a key part of the newly launched MAB Conveyancing service, which is being rolled out to members across the UK.

Gareth Herbert, sales director of Mortgage Advice Bureau, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming SortRefer onto our panel of specialist firms.

“As an organisation, MAB is committed to putting the intermediary and their customer at the forefront of our thinking. We work with those partners who share this important view.

“Conveyancing is an area where our members often experience a headache. They want to be able to use a service that is reliable, customer-centric, accessible and hassle-free. And that’s precisely what they will be able to get via our relationship with SortRefer.”

At the heart of the joint offering are easy-to-use online sales and administration tools that take the hassle out of organising conveyancing for a residential mortgage client. MAB members are also able to earn as much as £300 per instruction.

SortRefer managing director Kevin Tunnicliffe added: “This is an important strategic alliance for us.

“As an organisation, MAB mirrors our core value of putting the intermediary and their customer at the forefront of their thinking.

“We’re really pleased our online conveyancing service has been so well received by the intermediary community. It’s a service that’s been built by advisers for advisers, and we’ve put a lot of effort into creating an intelligent solution that is highly reliable and accurate.

“In the long term, our goal is to get every MAB member on board. But we’ll be very happy if we can get 200 firms and individuals signed up and using the site by the end of February.”
