The Mortgage Lender has expanded its team of onsite underwriters following the appointment of Warner Pidgeon as regional underwriter for Complete FS.
Warner has more than 17 years of experience in the industry having held roles with Lloyds Banking Group, Woolwich Building Society, Molo Finance and Fleet Mortgages.
This is the fourth appointment of a regional underwriter by The Mortgage Lender with onsite support located within 3mc, Dynamo and TFC Homeloans.
David Eaves, head of national accounts at The Mortgage Lender said: “Warner has a wealth of experience and we’re thrilled to have him join our growing team.”
Warner adds: “The Mortgage Lender has a great range of products and a strong reputation. Its real life lending approach was particularly attractive to me – like they say, you can’t fit a square peg into a round hole – borrowers’ lives are complex and TML’s products reflect that.”
Warner will join the team at Complete FS located at Hamble-le-Rice in Southampton.
Founded in 1993, Complete FS is a leading mortgage packager and distributor covering the whole of the market.
Tony Salentino, director at Complete FS says: “We are delighted to have Warner join our growing number of lender onsite underwriters. This will add substantial benefits to our packaging proposition, in particular improving the consistency of decisioning at DIP stage, quicker turnaround times and faster completions. All-in-all better for the client and the intermediary. We are very grateful to TML for showing us their support and we will work tirelessly to ensure this adds real value to all the intermediaries using our services.”
The Mortgage Lender is an intermediary-only mortgage lender. It provides real life lending choices for a wide range of borrowers including employed, self-employed, those with impaired credit, lending into retirement and buy to let investors.
This year it launched help to buy residential mortgages and its first buy to let remortgage product. It also completed its first UK mortgage-backed securitisation of residential assets for £238.5m.
