Thousands of Paradigm broker members will now be able to access Together’s first charge residential mortgages.
The lender offers loan sizes up to £1m, including capital repayment and interest-only, without valuation or legal fees.
Paradigm advisers will also have access to Together’s online portal, My Broker Venue, where they can submit cases and receive a full, instant, decision-in-principle.
Richard Tugwell, group intermediary relationship director at Together (pictured), said: “We’re delighted to extend our offering to Paradigm’s members so that we can introduce our common sense approach to thousands more brokers.
“It’s essential that mortgage clubs like Paradigm have a broad range of lenders to suit different customer needs.
“Our strength is assisting in those unusual or complex cases that the mainstream finance providers may not be able to help with, and we’re looking forward to working with their member firms as a result of this new partnership.”
John Coffield, head of Paradigm Mortgage Services, added: “The burgeoning specialist market is a core area for many Paradigm firms, especially given the growing demand from those borrowers who might not ‘conform’ to the affordability measures and criteria that can often be an obstacle with mainstream lenders.
“Together is a long-standing lender in this space and has a focus on the individual borrower, with a range of residential mortgage products which cater for this demographic.
“We believe this ‘non-standard’ part of the market will develop much further in 2018 and beyond, and therefore it’s important that our member firms have access to lenders such as Together who understand the needs of these clients.”
Together recently extended its offering through SimplyBiz mortgage club and Personal Touch.
