Fleet partners up with Connells
Connells, which has over 25 years’ experience and nationwide coverage, will work with Fleet to carry out property valuations using in-house personnel and partner valuation firms.
Bob Young, chief executive of Fleet Mortgages, said: “Connells’ expertise in this area is self-evident and it means they are in the best position possible to provide us with these services.
“In choosing Connells we have opted for a highly experienced and professional operation and one which has the quality of personnel and depth of resources to handle our needs.
“This is a particularly exciting time for everyone involved in Fleet Mortgages as we are very close to launching; we are extremely pleased to be working with our old friends at Connells and look forward to a strong and long-term relationship between the two businesses.”
Ross Bowen, managing director at Connells, added: “Fleet Mortgages’ journey has been impressive and the combination of its highly respected team and compelling proposition will undoubtedly result in the business quickly becoming a major force in the market.
“I am delighted that Connells has been appointed as Fleet Mortgages’ panel management partner and we can play a pivotal role in underpinning the business’ ongoing success.”
Fleet will lend exclusively through the intermediary sector, initially offering buy-to-let mortgages for residential landlords, limited companies and people seeking finance for houses in multiple occupation.
