Connect for Intermediaries has launched a number of tools hosted on its website.
Connect’s website has a repayment calculator, a stamp duty calculator and a rental calculator, as well at 160 lender product guides.
Liz Syms (pictured), chief executive of Connect for Intermediaries, said: “We spent some months finding out what tools a broker would find most helpful when doing their job, particularly when placing more complex or specialist mortgage cases.
“All of these we have included on our website as a free range of tools and information. Brokers can, of course, still phone our specialist help desk if they need any additional help.
“We believe that Connect for Intermediaries now provides everything a broker needs in order to place every mortgage quickly and easily, maximising the amount of time they can spend with clients and enabling them to see more clients in a day than they could before.”
The rental calculator allows advisers to see how large a mortgage can be achieved with a given rental amount. They can also select the interest rate and stress margin to be used to compare the differences in borrowing calculations between limited companies or individuals, for example.
The website also details the exclusive rates either to network members or DAs under Connect’s packaging or referral options.
