West One also offer a range of buy-to-let mortgages, as well as bridging loans, development finance and second-charge mortgages.
Richard Howes, Director of Mortgages at Paradigm, commented: “There is a growing complexity to residential borrowers’ needs and circumstances, which means there is an increase in need for specialist mortgage products from lenders who fully understand this market, and can tailor their service and criteria to those specific needs. We are therefore very pleased to be able to offer West One’s new residential proposition to Paradigm member firms, who we know are increasingly active in the specialist residential space and are always looking for quality lenders who can provide individual support for both them and their clients. We have been working with West One for some time, offering its buy-to-let products to Paradigm firms, so we’re very pleased to be able to work together, pushing out this new specialist residential proposition, which I’m sure will be welcomed widely by our members.”
Paul Huxter, Head of Clubs & Networks at West One, said: “In the current challenging economic environment we find ourselves in, our residential products will help Paradigm firms and their advisers find the right solution for their clients. Through the trusted partnership we have built with their members we will assist in getting their specialist residential cases placed.”
