TMA Club has added Darlington Building Society to its lender panel, meaning members of TMA can take immediate advantage of access to Darlington’s product range.
Darlington offers solutions for traditional and more complex lending, including fixed and variable rate mortgages as well as buy-to-let. It considers each application on an individual basis with no credit scoring. This provides opportunities for categories such as older borrowers, employees paid in foreign currency, self- employed and those on fixed term contracts where other lenders may not.
Rob McCoy, senior product and business manager at TMA, said: “With customer demand growing by the day, it is vital that we ensure our lender panel accommodates and supports all types of customers.
“We aim to enable a whole spectrum of borrowers to gain access to funding and with the addition of Darlington Building Society, we can accomplish this.
“This new addition will strengthen our ability to reach a wider customer base, including those who are self-employed or have more complex circumstances.
“We will continue to work hard to maintain TMA’s position as at the forefront of the intermediary market through offering what our brokers desire the most – choice.”
Julie Bourne, business development manager at Darlington Building Society, said: “We are looking forward to working with TMA as we aim to provide those customers with more complex circumstances with the mortgage they need.
“As less and less customers fit the one-size-fits-all mortgage approach, TMA recognises this, providing advisers with access to a wider range of mortgage products, suitable for individual needs.
“At Darlington Building Society, we always aim to find a solution for cases and with the support of TMA’s position as one of the UK’s fastest growing mortgage clubs, we can now reach out to more customers than ever.”
This latest addition follows a huge growth period for TMA. Its lender panel has been strengthened by recent additions including Saffron for Intermediaries and Leek United Building Society.
