Platform exclusives for advisers

In its latest move to build a dedicated mortgage business for intermediaries, Platform will add a selection of fixed and tracker deals to its range with free valuation, and free legal fees for remortgages.

The new mortgage products are:

• 2 Year fixed rates from 4.24%

• 3 Year fixed rates from 4.89%

• 5 Year fixed rate from 4.49%

• 2 Year tracker products from 3.29%

• 3 Year tracker products from 3.24%

All the new products come with an application fee of £995 and are available to Platform’s panel of intermediary partners.

In addition, Platform will add a new 3 year fixed buy-to-let mortgage with a rate starting at 5.79% to its specialist intermediary product range. It comes with an application fee of £1,495.

Lee Gladwell, director of sales & proposition at Platform, said: “This is the latest move in our work to build a dedicated intermediary mortgage business that puts intermediaries at the heart of our product and service proposition, enabling them to deliver an enhanced service to their clients."

Following the merger between Britannia Building Society and The Co-operative Financial Services in August 2009, Platform is now the intermediary lender of The Co-operative Bank.

Lee Gladwell added: “Platform will bring The Co-operative?s trusted brand and unique approach to responsible business to the intermediary mortgage market. We believe that combining these with our aim to deliver quality products and service will be very attractive to IFAs.”
