Crystal Specialist Finance enters strategic partnership with Pepper Homeloans

Wednesday 23 Mar 2016

Crystal Specialist Finance (CSF) has entered a strategic partnership with Pepper Homeloans, with the company added to the lender panel and all documentation immediately available via Packaging Portal to help streamline completion times.

Brokers can access Pepper Homeloans residential and buy-to-let mortgages on the Packaging Portal by selecting the product type, viewing the applicable product guide and completing the application form for submission to CSF’s dedicated applications team.

This means brokers still have direct access to semi-exclusive products from Pepper Homeloans, and other leading lenders, while removing the need to complete extra, time-consuming paperwork.

The mortgage lending division of Pepper (UK) Limited, Pepper Homeloans has carved out a niche by assisting customers who require a more personalised approach to borrowing.

Jo Breeden, Managing Director of CSF, added: “Pepper Homeloans is an exciting, innovative lender who places the customer at the centre of its business. Like us they know service is everything, plus how the effective use of technology assists with the promotion of products and a quicker process to move from application to completion.”

Jeff Knight, Head of Marketing at Pepper Homeloans, said: “We are very excited to have developed a strategic relationship with CSF. Distribution is important for Pepper Homeloans and working with specialist distributors is vital. Crystal has a great track record and our product range adds some more flavour to their overall offering.”
