Accord adds BTL functionality to API technology

Accord Mortgages has extended its API technology to cover BTL cases, making it easier for brokers to submit mortgage applications for landlords.

Brokers using Iress’ Trigold and Xplan Mortgage programmes, or Twenty7Tec’s APPLY software will now be able to process BTL applications via Iress’ Lender Connect system, giving advisers the ability to pre-populate Accord’s management services organization (MSO) platform.

Jeremy Duncombe, managing director at Accord Mortgages (pictured above), said: “Brokers have benefited from the digital efficiencies we’ve seen with our MSO platform and API connectivity working hand-in-hand for residential cases, and we’re pleased to be extending this to BTL business too, meaning all our propositions can now be accessed in one place.

“It’s yet another way we’re improving our BTL proposition; streamlining elements of the application process saves brokers time and effort, which will be felt even more so for advisers submitting multiple applications for portfolio landlords.”

Kelly Bretherton, head of product for intermediary mortgages at Iress, commented: "We're thrilled that Accord's BTL products are available through Iress Lender Connect. 

“The ability to apply for an ever-expanding range of products through Lender Connect means that brokers can work on a huge range of mortgage scenarios and apply without having to re-key critical information. 

“This greatly increases efficiency, reduces the chance of errors, and makes the overall process much more streamlined."

Nathan Reilly, director of lender relationships at Twenty7Tec, added: “January and February have been record months for APPLY engagement from our users, which shows advisers are increasingly looking at the ways technology can drive additional time saving and efficiency when submitting applications to lenders.

“In order to continue this positive trend, it’s vital advisers can realise the benefits of integration across even more cases, so we’re delighted that APPLY will also now support BTL submissions for Accord Mortgages.”
