Mortgage Sales Staff Stopped Working

Recommended Posts

I was talking to a friend who works in mortgage sales for a large mortage lender. They are one of the relatively few lenders who are still offering mortgage products and they are making no effort to make their products competative. They are currently getting 3 or 4 times the number of applications that they are actually able to process. The sales staff have been pulled off the phones and are helping to process applications. Any applicants with CCJs or more than 2 missed mortgage payments in their history are being automatically rejected.

An IFA that she knows is getting people to fill in mortgage applications and submit them the same day as the products are being pulled so fast that she can't guarantee the rates if they take the paperwork home and bring it back the next day.

Nice anecdote , but how about giving the lenders name , it won't do no harm .

Future still lending tho swamped with work due to the lack of other lenders - staff having to work overtime at Easter to catch up.

Abbey still lending as normal - no phone calls being taken as staff too busy processing mortgages. The online app site has been down nearly all day today and has been off & on for two weeks as it cant cope with the demand.

Halifax still lending as normal - 45 min wait on phone lines and 100 extra staff brought in to cope with demand.

Mortgages plc have pulled products
