NatWest Intermediary Solutions has launched a new intermediary website.
Brokers will be able to register and log in from the home page to submit business and access a number of tools including its LiveTALK instant messaging service, affordability calculator, ‘real-time’ mortgage application tracker and its new A-Z of lending criteria.
Sarah Taylor, head of service development, NatWest Intermediary Solutions, said: “Our research showed that one of the key reasons that brokers visit our web site is to find an answer to a query about criteria.
“So, we have introduced a new A-Z of lending criteria that provides a comprehensive run-down of many of the common policy queries that get raised.
“Another common reason for a visit is to check on processing timescales. We have included an overview of these on the home page so that intermediaries can quickly find information about things such as average speed to offer timescales for both purchase mortgages and remortgages, the date of applications that have been progressed to underwriting or require further information and wait times for LiveTALK and telephony.”
