Property services provider Connells Group has signed an agreement to make MBT Affordability, launched by Mortgage Broker Tools, available to all mortgage advisers.

The MBT Affordability tool provides an affordability calculator for the full Connells Group lender panel, and more.

The platform gives up-to-date results, which aims to help brokers during the current period of rapid change, while saving time and reducing re-keying and human error.

MBT Affordability keeps a record of all cases and results, providing an automatic compliance audit trail.

Case details can be amended and affordability re-queried at any time.

Lewis Lenssen, managing director at Mortgage Broker Tools, said: “This is great news for clients of Connells Group.

“At a time of significant uncertainty, Connells Group has demonstrated its commitment to empowering its advisers with the tools they need to stay up to date in a rapidly changing market and make the most of every opportunity.

“With MBT Affordability, their mortgage consultants can quickly see the affordability for the full panel of lenders.

“Advisers can also maintain a robust audit trail, by creating and keeping PDFs that demonstrate their research.”

Adrian Scott, mortgage services director at Connells Group, said: “Affordability is a key consideration for all of our customers and we regularly need our mortgage advisers to have speedy access to the latest information and most appropriate products.

“Our advisers have traditionally accessed multiple lender calculators to ensure we are researching the complete picture for our clients, but MBT Affordability enables them to achieve the same comprehensive results without having to rekey the same data numerous times.

“This is particularly important in today’s fast-moving environment and it also provides reassurance of greater accuracy and a full audit trail – as well as saving lots of time on every case.”
