Paradigm add Stafford Railway Building Society to panel

Paradigm Mortgage Services, the mortgage services proposition, has today announced the appointment of Stafford Railway Building Society to its lender panel.

From today, Paradigm member firms will have access to the Society’s range of residential, buy-to-let including holiday lets, as well as specialist lending products with mortgages available for those with complex income situations and unusual/rural property types.

Stafford Railway has been offering mortgages for over 140 years in both England and Wales, underwriting each case individually and not relying on credit scores to agree mortgage applications.

Paradigm members will be able to utilise the Society’s specific intermediary team for support and access its Mortgage Hub online allowing them to submit mortgage applications through it as well as uploading supporting documentation. Plus, it has a specific affordability calculator available online.

Richard Howes, Director of Mortgages at Paradigm Mortgage Services, commented: “As we often find, it is the building society sector which continues to lead the way in a number of areas particularly their ability to review cases individually, and to find ways to say yes. Stafford Railway certainly fit this bill, and with a wide product range which covers a large number of borrower demographics, we’re sure Paradigm firms will find much to interest both them and their clients. Lending in England and Wales, and with a focus on delivering a quality service, the Society has a strong intermediary focus, plus the support levels to back this up. We’re looking forward to working with the team at the Stafford Railway and introducing our member firms to its excellent mortgage proposition.”

Rob Hassall, Head of Product Strategy & Communications at Stafford Railway Building Society, said: “With our flexible and solutions-based approach to lending we’re proud to be adding our expertise to the Paradigm panel and offering support to their member firms. Our sales and underwriting teams not only work closely, they sit alongside each other, improving the communication, speed of decision making and overall mortgage proposition. The Society is very much committed to growing and expanding its intermediary proposition with key, valued relationships; our partnership with Paradigm continues this journey.”
