“We are striving to make Shawbrook the lender to follow in 2013,” said Karen Bennett, head of sales and marketing, commercial mortgages, Shawbrook Bank.
“These changes demonstrate just how serious we are about becoming a major player in the short-term loan market for property professionals.
“Brokers are at the heart of Shawbrook’s business and we appreciate the hard work they do to complete deals. The change to the minimum term was in direct response to feedback from brokers active in the bridging market. We also understand the need for transparency in bridging on pricing, fees and commissions and are committed to always delivering this.
“We are fully aware that it’s a huge step when switching bridging providers as it’s all about the ability to deliver. Shawbrook has proven that we can deliver in terms of speed, service and the best rates in the market.”
