Specialist mortgage lender Vida Homeloans has launched in Scotland, meaning its range is now available to those purchasing or remortgaging Scottish residential and buy-to-let properties.
Kenny Clark, who formerly worked at HSBC and the Royal Bank of Scotland, has been appointed as Vida’s key account manager in Scotland, and will be the primary point of contact for intermediaries.
He said: “I am really pleased to be joining Vida at such an exciting time in its expansion plans.
“I look forward to representing Vida in Scotland and to be the primary point of contact for Scottish brokers. I can see Vida’s unique BTL and Expat propositions being very popular in key Scottish cities such as Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh.”
Ian McGrail, director at First Mortgage, said: “We have just launched a specialist lending team to cater for our extensive network of branches in Scotland so this news is very welcome indeed.
“I am sure we will be able to help many more customers with the addition of Vida Homeloans and I look forward to working together in the near future.”
From the second and third of October, Vida Homeloans hosted two launch events – one in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh – to celebrate the launch.
Guy Batchelor, sales and marketing director at Vida Homeloans, said: “I am very pleased to be announcing the launch of our proposition into Scotland.
“I believe our specialist products will be popular with Scottish brokers and their clients, and I hope we can continue to help more intermediaries get specialist cases off their desks.”
