Directly authorised members of PMS and Sesame Network members will now have direct access to Zephyr’s buy-to-let product range.
Speaking to Specialist Lending Solutions earlier this month, Zephyr managing director Paul Fryers, said the lender was ready to begin the second phase of its broker market expansion with more distribution agreements on the horizon.
Commenting on the deal, Fryers added: “In this dynamic buy-to-let market, we aim to support mortgage advisers to help them meet the diverse needs of their customers.
“We are delighted to launch with PMS and Sesame and look forward to working together over the coming months to further this important partnership.”
Stephanie Charman (pictured), specialist lending relationship manager at Sesame and PMS, said: “The buy-to-let landscape continues to evolve in terms of choice and complexity.
“It’s essential for us to ensure we have an extensive lending panel available for mortgage advisers, which comprises both standard and specialist buy-to-let products and criteria.”
