UTB Launches Residential Mortgage Product Transfer Process, Including an Industry First for Second Charge Loans

United Trust Bank (UTB) Mortgages for Intermediaries has launched Product Transfer options for its Residential Mortgages and Second Charge loans. The specialist mortgage lender understands that offering a Second Charge product transfer option is also an industry first.

In addition, the procuration fees/commission are highly competitive at 0.4% of the loan amount transferred on Residential Mortgages and 1% on Second Charge Loans.

UTB Product Transfer Interest Rates

Available interest rates are dependent on the original customer status, LTV and application profile, and will be confirmed upon initial enquiry.

Residential Mortgages

o       0.40% proc-fee/commission

o       2yr fixed rates from 6.99%

o       5yr fixed rates from 7.09%

o       £995 product fee, paid up front or added to loan

Second Charge Loans

o       1.00% proc-fee/commission

o       5yr fixed rates from 6.79%

o       £995 product fee, paid up front or added to loan

With immediate effect, all UTB registered introducers can now apply for a product transfer on behalf of their customers through the UTB Portal. A new option has been added on the home screen for ‘Product Transfer Enquiry Form’ and the process takes 1-2 minutes to complete.

Once submitted, UTB assesses the customer’s eligibility and replies by email with details of the available products. Once a product is selected, the Bank issues a Mortgage Illustration and Offer for execution within 24hrs. Once returned, confirmation of the new product will be provided, and the transfer set for the day after the current product expires.

Brokers can find full details of the new Product Transfer options in the updated product guide: HERE

Buster Tolfree, Director of Mortgages, United Trust Bank said: “We recognise how important it is for brokers to be able to give their customers certainty and peace of mind as they approach the end of their initial fixed rate period. We are delighted to launch these new product transfer options for UTB customers, especially our industry first Second Charge product transfer.

“Furthermore, at 0.4% for first charges and 1.0% for seconds, the commissions we’re paying on product transfers are very much at the upper end of the market. Proof yet again that we’re keen to look after our brokers when doing a great job for our shared customers.”
