Mortgage Talk partners Advantage Home Loans on non-conforming lending

In making the decision to refer its sub prime cases to Advantage Home Loans, Mortgage Talk is able to ensure that all applications are handled with the same degree of service and levels of professionalism as those going to high street lenders. This includes lending arranged for customers and buyers

through Mortgage Talk's extensive estate agency and builder contacts.

Advantage Homes Loans has the ability to cascade prospective borrowers' situations down a wide range of competitive and comprehensive sub-prime and specialist mortgage products. In addition, the company offers DIPs (Decisions in Principle) online, with an accurate formal decision within

agreed timescales, combined with an online case tracker that provides up to the minute data on how each case is proceeding.

According to Mortgage Talk Operations Director Andrew Frankish, selecting Advantage Home Loans as its non-conforming lending partner enables Mortgage

Talk to offer the same high standards of service to all the broker's clients, regardless of their credit history and financial status: "After researching the market carefully, we concluded that Advantage stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of customer service and product choice," states Frankish.

"Advantage has a similar philosophy to Mortgage Talk in that both organisations use technology to maximise the levels of service that we offer our clients. This provides all our clients with the best possible advice, linked to a better product mix, a faster service and more accurate case updates. We are delighted to have formed a partnership with Advantage, and fully expect this to result in even more business in the future," adds Frankish.

Peter Bass, Advantage Home Loans Head of Sales & Marketing comments: "Advantage are extremely pleased to be working closely with Mortgage Talk and are looking forward to packaging all of their sub prime business. As a market leading organisation with a strong brand presence, large sales force

and centralised administration unit we feel this is a natural fit for both companies."

"As with all key accounts, I am really looking forward to the opportunity to integrate our operations departments and establish one clearly defined process that enables both companies to work as one, to achieve extremely positive results and deliver real customer satisfaction,'" adds Bass.
