Ingard Network adds Together to its Lender Panel

Together has teamed up with the Ingard Network to extend its products to its members, as the specialist lender continues to widen its distribution.

Ingard will be making Together’s range of buy to let and first charge residential products available to a network of over 90 of its mortgage advisers from across the UK.

John Truswell, head of national accounts at Together, said: “We’re delighted to be widening our distribution to Ingard’s members, so that even more advisers have access to our specialist offering.

“We’re looking forward to forging strong partnerships with their members and their specialist team, to help their customers, who may have unusual or complicated cases, access the funding they need.

“As a business that has been established for 45 years, we have a wealth of knowledge about the market. We use a common-sense approach to our lending decisions, and take into account the individual circumstances of each borrower.”

Ingard members will now have access to Together’s online portal, My Broker Venue, where they can submit cases and receive a full, instant, decision-in-principle for regulated first charge, buy to let and consumer buy to let. There is also personal support on hand at all times from the lender’s team of experts.

Together can assist in cases ranging from mortgages for self-employed customers, or those with complex income streams, those wanting to borrow on an unusual property or with adverse credit. The specialist lender can also provide funding for cases involving specific kinds of property purchase, such as shared ownership or right-to-buy, as well as providing finance for buy-to-let properties.

Ingard sales and marketing director Nikki Haworth said: “It brings us great pleasure to welcome Together to our distribution panel.  We have been impressed with the lender’s focus on affordability and common sense approach to every individual’s borrowing needs; particularly for borrowers with non-standard income or those with an imperfect credit history.

“Both Ingard members and directly authorised brokers can now access Together’s leading products directly or via our specialist team.”
