How our Deal Placement process works
We work with you, the lender and associated third parties, leaving you to work with your client.
- You contact us with your enquiry
Call the Broker Desk on 0845 148 9238 or the one of us directly.
Email us firstname.lastname@example.org or one of us directly.
At the same time, if you have not placed any business with us before, it is essential that you register with us to ensure we can process the case and pay you in a timely manner. You can save time by registering with us now, so that you’ll be ready to go when your client needs you.
- We select a lender and finance option
Your enquiry is assessed by one of our specialist consultants who selects the most suitable lender and type of finance for the deal.
Within 24 hours of receiving your enquiry – usually sooner - we will send you indicative terms for the most suitable financial option. Cases which are outside standard criteria will need to be referred to the lender for approval. In these instances, the timescales may be longer but our consultants will keep you informed of progress. Then we discuss our recommendation with you.
- Indicative terms include:
b. Fees payable by the client
c. General lending criteria
d. Application form
e. A checklist of the documents required
- You send the indicative terms to your client
As soon as you receive the indicative terms from us you should send them on to your client and discuss it with them. If they are happy with the terms, ask them to complete the application form and return it to you with all the documents on the checklist (we’ll send you this with the indicative terms).
At this point, you should check that your client has correctly completed the application form and provided all the requested supporting documentation. If it is not complete, you'll need to work with your client to ensure that all the information is correctly assembled before sending it on to us. If this raises any issues or concerns, do talk to us before sending back the paperwork so that we can help you iron out any problems.
Lenders will not process applications that are incomplete or missing supporting documentation.
- We prepare a supporting proposal and submit the application
From this point you will be able to track the case using our online tracking facility. If you don't already have login details, do get in touch (0345 148 9238) so that we can set you up with an account (registered brokers only).
- The lender reviews the application
On submission of the case, the lender carries out the necessary credit checks on the applicants and if these are passed, an underwriter reviews and assesses the application. If everything is in order, the lender will make a decision within three working days.If the applicant/s does not pass the credit check the underwriter will let us know and we will work with you to see if anything can be done to change the situation.
- The lender makes a decision
As long as everything is in order the lender will make its decision within three working days from submission. A decision takes one of three forms:
If the lender accepts the case, it issues us with a Facility Letter (sometimes known as Heads of Terms) which outlines the offer, terms and conditions and next steps. At this point, the valuation is instructed, and we will require the valuation fee to be paid by the client before proceeding, (although exceptions apply in some instances).
II. Further information required:
Sometimes a lender will require additional information in order to make a proper decision. If this happens, we will work with you to make sure you can get the necessary information from your client. Once the information has been submitted to the lender, we usually have to wait a further three working days for a decision from the lender.
In the event that the lender declines the case, our consultant will try to find out the reasons why and then re-evaluate the application. Do bear in mind, that for data protection reasons, it’s not always possible for the lender to tell us why they have declined a case. However, when we can ascertain the reason, if appropriate, we will provide you with an alternative finance option for your client and send you the corresponding indicative terms.
- We manage the case through to completion
Once the case is accepted by the lender and we have received a Facility Letter, we hand over the case to a dedicated case manager who becomes your main point of contact for all updates. The case manager will support you for the rest of the process, from the valuation through to receiving a formal mortgage offer and ensuring the case completes as quickly as possible. Having said that, we always keep an eye on the case and are available to chat if you need us.
