Halifax scooped the title of best overall lender at the Legal & General (L&G) awards, sponsored by Mortgage Solutions last week.

The awards, held on 10 May in London, saw Northern Rock win the ‘most improved lender’ award for the second year running. Woolwich took home the ‘best lender for products’ award, also for the second consecutive year.

Duncan Crocker, managing director of L&G’s partnerships distribution, said: ‘The Mortgage Club awards reflect the views of our club members and I know our bank and building society members recognise their vital importance.’

Members of the L&G Mortgage Club voted and lenders were ranked for their products, service, administration and innovation.

Other lenders to come out on top included Alliance & Leicester as ‘best e-commerce lender’; Halifax as ‘best lender for service’; Northern Rock as ‘best lender for sales and marketing’; and Bank of Ireland as ‘best specialist lender’.

In addition to the awards for lenders, Mortgage Advice was voted top business partner; Mortgage Talk as fastest-growing business partner for more than 500 cases in 2000, Onn Financial Partnership as fastest-growing business partner for more than 100 cases in 2000; Monaco Mortgage Life & Pensions as top IFA; and Harman Financial Services as the fastest-growing IFA.
