The Nottingham for Intermediaries

Who are The Nottingham For Intermediaries?

The Nottingham for Intermediaries go the extra mile for their brokers, ensuring they get the best possible service. Whether it’s their flexible criteria, competitive rates or varied product range, The Nottingham are committed to helping you and your clients.

As a mutual building society, The Nottingham has been helping people onto and along the property ladder for over 170 years. It’s a great legacy, but in 2023 the society will be really focussing on what mutuality means in the modern world.

That’s why they take a flexible approach and look at applications on a case-by-case basis. They see the individual, not the criteria, so are well placed to help when brokers find themselves with one of those ‘hard to place’ cases.

And with their team of experienced BDMs and support staff – and even the option to speak directly to underwriters – you’ll always be in safe hands
