HTB specialist mortgages appoints VAS Panel

Hampshire Trust Bank’s (HTB) specialist mortgages division has teamed up with VAS Panel to offer additional support to brokers across the lender’s bridging offering.

The partnership will provide HTB’s brokers access to the VAS Panel database of qualified valuers.

VAS Panel valuations will be available for all new bridging finance applications.

The lender will continue to work with its existing partner, Appraisers UK, for all term loan valuations.

Alex Upton, commercial director of HTB’s specialist mortgages division (pictured above), said: “We are fully focussed on the continued enhancement of our bridging proposition and service delivery in 2021. 

“The appointment of VAS Panel is another step towards ensuring we provide our brokers with the best possible support by obtaining residential valuations quickly for their customers with the expertise and technology that VAS provides.” 

Louise Chapman, operations director at VAS Group, added: “Having worked hard with HTB over the last few months, we are now very excited to be able to start supporting the team with panel management services. 

“HTB is a long-established bank with an excellent reputation, and we are proud to be working with it to support its clients and brokers.”
