Skipton said these seminars are part of the mutual’s continued commitment to implementing all industry changes smoothly, professionally and in partnership with brokers.
The sessions aim to help reassure brokers worried about pipeline transition and the new rules from next March.
Paul Darwin, Skipton’s head of intermediary relationships (pictured) said: “We understand how busy our broker partners are, but with the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) fast approaching, we want to make sure everyone is up to speed with these changes and aware of the impact this may have on their business. We feel that by hosting a series of UK wide breakfast seminars this will give our broker partners a helping hand.
“We feel it’s important that brokers know what our approach will be, and how to deal with the new disclosure documents and manage pipeline business during the run up to the MCD launch. This and much more will be covered during our breakfast seminars.”
In September, Skipton Intermediaries was one of the first lenders to outline its plans for its approach to the European Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) and how it will help its broker partners transition. It confirmed it will provide ESIS illustrations from the start – and aims to be up and running as early as the New Year.
