"We’re really pleased to be able to offer this valuation cashback which gives brokers and their clients reason to celebrate as we close 2021 and enter 2022."
The offer applies to all valuation fees paid on or after 1st December 2021, where the loan completes before or on 28th February 2022. It is available across the Castle Trust Bank product range and the cashback of up to £5k + VAT will be applicable on most loans.
Rob Oliver, sales director at Castle Trust Bank, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer this valuation cashback which gives brokers and their clients reason to celebrate as we close 2021 and enter 2022. A good example of the amount that could be saved is a recent £3m completion, where the valuation fee was £3,250 + VAT. The cashback of up to £5k + VAT will mean that most customers who pay their fees from today and complete by the end of February, will not have to pay a valuation fee. Feedback from brokers tells us that valuation cashbacks offer a bigger benefit than free valuations as they enable greater freedom to choose a surveyor, which is particularly important in the current environment where there have been reports of delays with some firms.
“It’s further demonstration of our understanding of what brokers want and commitment to supporting our intermediaries, building on our rate reductions earlier this year and our recent criteria enhancements, which included lending to first-time buyers.”
