Mortgages plc enhance online proposition

There are now three sections to the site - corporate, intermediary, and consumer.

The lender claims that it is the first website in the non conforming market to include a section dedicated to packagers. The ‘Packager Toolbox’ can be found in the intermediary section and contains specific bulletins and manuals that address the needs of this market.

Although all of Mortgages plc’s business is introduced via intermediaries, the consumer can find explanations for some of the jargon in the non conforming sector and use the mortgage calculator to see how much their repayments could be.

Julian Wells, marketing manager at Mortgages plc, said: "We felt it was important to provide potential customers with sufficient information to understand our company and to be able to research us online before taking out a mortgage with us. It is our hope that intermediaries will also be able to use the consumer zone as a sales aid."

The site allows intermediaries to use a mortgage calculator, download marketing material and place an online order for stationery.

"We have more than 1000 registered users and we are already working on key enhancements, such as an online Decision in Principle for intermediaries to use to get an instant response," said Wells.
