Adrian Moloney, Group Intermediary Director, OSB Group, said:

“With the current economic backdrop, we were keen to provide some positive product options for brokers as we understand the challenges they are facing across the board.

At the end of the day, there are always clients wanting to transact, whether it’s for the next step towards a family home or an investment property so it’s important as a lender that we listen and adapt accordingly.

For example, our income flexibility products were designed to help newly qualified professionals, looking to purchase their first home but needing flexibility around income multipliers.”

Wayne Gray, Managing Director, DMI Finance, said:

“Kent Reliance for Intermediaries are a key lending partner and these products and reduced rates will certainly be welcome news, especially for our residential clients who need just a little more flexibility in order to secure their dream property.

Alongside this positive news, we really value the support of KRFI’s award winning BDM team, as they take the time to talk through case complexities which can make a real difference towards securing a positive outcome.”
