Cheval, which was the first bridging finance lender to join the CML, has seen business levels rise significantly since it issued its Code of Conduct in October.

The site boasts features such as easy to use registration, on line DIP requests, on line KFI production and a ‘call me back’ feature allowing brokers to schedule a call back at a specific time. Along with a comprehensive FAQ section, specific intermediary case studies and forms library, the new website is designed to offer brokers everything they will need to do business.

Commentating on the website, Mark Posniak, marketing manager at Cheval said “ The new website was a complete rebuild from the ground up in response to market research among brokers. It became clear at the Expo that brokers have been looking for easier ways to access bridging finance and our new website has all the features they need to business with us. New registrations have been coming thick and fast and over 130 new brokers have now registered with us to send business. “

Richard Taylor, a partner at the UK’s largest independently owned mortgage broker, Cobalt Capital LLP, said ‘’The new Cheval site is extremely user-friendly, and the functionality has enabled our team to transact business electronically. In a time-critical scenario, the on-line capability will save crucial hours. Cheval continues to show its competitors a clean pair of heels’’
