Paragon introduces procuration fee on further advances for buy-to-let

  • New procuration fee for intermediaries submitting further advance business
  • Procuration fee promotes intermediary engagement
  • Move follows launch of Paragon’s online portal

Paragon, the specialist bank and buy-to-let mortgage lender, is today introducing a procuration fee for intermediaries who submit further advance business for buy-to-let customers that subsequently completes.

Paragon will pay procuration fees for further advance business at the same rate as intermediaries’ standard business terms for new mortgage applications, typically 0.5% of the value of the funds advanced.

A further advance enables a landlord with an existing Paragon mortgage to release capital to fund further property-related investment and development and can provide a competitive and more convenient alternative to a full remortgage of the property.

The introduction of the procuration fee for further advance business is the latest in a series of developments from Paragon designed to improve the mortgage proposition over the full life of the loan.

It follows the introduction of a new online portal and application process for switch products and further advance business at the beginning of the year, designed to help intermediaries identify where funds may be available and to what value, and support a fast and efficient application process.

John Heron, Managing Director of Mortgages at Paragon said:

The new online portal gives customers and intermediaries the tools they need to help them access switch and further advance facilities quickly and easily. Introducing the procuration fee today recognises the critical role our intermediaries play in supporting customers through the decision-making process.
