Brokers using Clever Lending now have access to Pepper Money’s full range of specialist residential and buy-to-let mortgage products.
Pepper provides flexible criteria and direct access to its team of underwriters to find solutions to ‘interesting’ cases.
Sam Kirtikar (pictured), managing director of Clever Lending, said: “We’re delighted to be going live with Pepper Money and be given the opportunity to distribute their excellent products.
“With our growing introducer demand and the ever-developing market, it’s crucial we ensure our customers have access to the best solutions in the market, and partnering with forward-thinking and progressive lenders, such as Pepper, will enable us to do just that.”
Rob Barnard, sales director of Pepper Money, said: “We think that specialist is becoming the new mainstream, as changing demographics, credit commitments and employment trends lead to many more customers who don’t meet the automated approach of a credit score.
“We review each case on its own merits and our lending decisions are made by a team of skilled underwriters, which means that we can look beyond a client’s score.
“Brokers using Pepper have access to products with transparent criteria and competitive rates and we are really pleased to be able to share this approach with brokers using Clever Lending.”
