As part of our ongoing commitment to support our broker partners, we are proud to announce that it is now faster and easier than ever before to submit applications with Darlington Intermediaries – the Intermediary branch of Darlington Building Society.

Thanks to a clever tech upgrade, the vast majority of information from a Decision in Principle or a full mortgage application can be prepopulated from brokers’ CRM systems into our mortgage system. This means fewer errors, faster applications and a seamless experience for brokers.

The upgrade is built into our Iress MSO platform, so brokers can simply click “Apply” to experience the new and improved journey, with no extra software required.

Chris Blewitt, Head of Intermediary Distribution said: “We facilitate complex cases, but we want to make processing these applications plain sailing. Staying ahead of the curve in the specialist lender space, we are using API technology to enable brokers to prepopulate applications. This saves them valuable time to ultimately help more people buy their dream homes, speaking directly to our purpose as a Building Society; to help look after people’s savings and support their journey to home ownership and beyond.

“We have been working in partnership with our technology partners of Lender Connect and IRESS to bring our brokers an improved mortgage experience with the Society for a number of years. The new Lender Connect to MSO connectivity makes it even easier for Brokers to do business with the Society and alongside our pragmatic manual underwriting approach will help build deeper relationships Broker partners in the months and years ahead.
