“We work with a number of the smaller building societies and have found that their approach to personalised underwriting is very refreshing. The criteria areas in which Darlington is particularly strong will be welcomed by our Members, and provide them with the personal touch they need. Darlington’s age limits and use of foreign currency will be very useful.”

Colin Fyfe, CEO at Darlington Building Society, added: 

“We are always looking at how we can build out relationships with the wider intermediary community and the opportunity to work with SimplyBiz Mortgages is part of that strategy. Their compliance support was a crucial factor in our decision as we look to work within the directly authorised market.”


Testimonials

"We joined SimplyBiz in 2010, having been members of the Sesame Network in one guise or another for nearly 10 years. We decided to leave the network because we felt that in the latter years we were just a number and it was beginning to feel like being back at school!  I have to say that the SimplyBiz approach is totally refreshing and that we feel in control of our own business again, whilst still having a good robust compliance support provider to guide us. We have since recommended SimplyBiz to other colleagues and would have no hesitation in doing so again."
