The ideal lender?

“This list of commitments represents all those times you’ve worked with a lender and needed to speak to an underwriter but couldn’t or had a decision from a computer when a person would have been better. They’re small things that make a big difference, and this outlines the practical steps we’re taking to make things faster, better and easier for you and your clients.”

Paul Fenn, Director of Business Development, Skipton Building Society.
