NatWest Intermediary Solutions has launched a new broker-facing website at <a href="http://intermediary.natwest.com">intermediary.natwest.com</a>.
It includes a new application form, which the lender says, has streamlined questions to remove duplication and reduce the need for further information requests once an application has been submitted.
Other facilities includes a buy-to-let AIP and new applicant electronic identity verification, whereby for full mortgage applications, the site will automatically attempt to verify the identity of the applicant. Intermediaries will be advised of a successful identity verification in the ‘Decision in Principle’ and should not be required to send in any further identity documentation, NatWest claims.
Also, details that are entered when requesting a KFI will automatically pre-populate the application form and there is product pre-selection .
The site also includes a new autosave function, a mortgage reference number which will be allocated to a client’s status field and real-time updating of personal details.
NatWest also says it has “harmonised”” the integration between its web site and MTE. This has resulted in changes being made to the AIP and full mortgage application forms and the introduction of a specific buy-to-let AIP.
