The partnership will also see the master broker place complex cases on behalf of the lender, particularly for customers who thought their circumstances were too difficult to allow to them find funding.
Kensington is a specialist lender of first charge and buy-to-let mortgages for the self-employed and clients with credit score problems.
Clever Lending packages and distributes first charge mortgages, second charge mortgages and bridging and commercial finance for lenders such as Mansfield Building Society. It joined Homeloan Partnership’s panel in April.
Managing director Sam Kirtikar said: “Kensington was identified as a key part of our panel and we are delighted to have them on board. Our expertise in the specialist first charge and buy to let markets means we can have a positive impact on their distribution and will also help provide a better service to consumers with income sources that are different to the norm and often rejected by mainstream lenders.”
Kensington director of sales and distribution Steve Griffiths added: “We are looking forward to working with Clever Lending on distributing our core range and developing new products to provide more options for their introducers in the future.”
