Following specific feedback from our broker partners, Shawbrook is pleased to announce that it has enhanced its Platinum secured loan products. These products offer a viable alternative to mainstream re-mortgaging, and in many cases enable customers to retain competitive mortgage deals whilst obtaining the shorter term finance they need.
Key features of the product changes include;
- Increased maximum advance to £125k (Gross Loan)
- Reduced the rates for employed applicants by 1%
- Increased the DTIR for employed applicants to 42.5%
- Adjusted commission payable to 0.5%
- Increased the minimum risk score to 450
Shawbrook’s homeowner loans can be used for a number of purposes such as home improvements, refinancing of other more expensive forms of credit or to pay for special one-off items like a wedding or a long-planned holiday. Secured loans have no costly early repayment charges and combined with the ability to tailor the term to serve a specific loan purpose, are fast becoming a very effective and flexible solution for many customers.
Maeve Ward, Head of Sales, secured lending at Shawbrook Bank said:
“Brokers lie at the heart of Shawbrook’s operations; and we are very committed to listening to their feedback. We are confident that the new product features will helps us support the renaissance of the secured loan market.
