Pepper adds Solent to panel
Pepper Homeloans has extended its distribution network to include Hampshire-based Solent Mortgage Services (SMS). 

Solent will market the specialist lender’s full range of residential and buy-to-let mortgage products, designed for clients who experience difficulties obtaining a mortgage via a high street lender.

Rob Barnard, director of sales at Pepper Homeloans, said: “We’re delighted to be adding SMS to our distribution network and are looking forward to working with them and their brokers over the coming months.”

Ian Balfour (pictured), chief executive at Solent Mortgage Services, said: “Pepper has been making a big impact on the specialist lending market and its combination of competitive products, accommodating criteria and personal underwriting rather than credit scoring, make it a compelling proposition for brokers and their clients.”

Last month Pepper overhauled its residential range, cutting rates and adding extra fixed-rate products, as well as entering a panel arrangement with Tenet Group and adding Ingard to its distribution panel.
