"It will give our brokers the ability to place their clients that may not fit with mainstream lending, which fits very nicely with our current lending panel."
Brilliant Solutions members will be able to submit business directly to Vernon across its range of specialist mortgages to first-time buyers, remortgagors, home movers, students and landlords.
This includes its Buy for Uni mortgage, joint borrower, sole proprietor options and a range of complex buy-to-let products. It also offers later life lending with no age limitations through its retirement interest-only range.
Brendan Crowshaw, head of mortgage and savings distribution at Vernon, said: “We’re thrilled to announce this partnership with Brilliant Solutions and can’t wait to start helping its members find specialist products for their clients.
“We’re a small, innovative lender with a passion for working with brokers and a fantastic range of mortgages, designed to help borrowers who sometimes find themselves excluded from mainstream lending.
“We underwrite each case manually and look for ways to say yes.”
Michael Craig, sales director at Brilliant Solutions, added: "We are pleased to welcome Vernon Building Society onto our Mortgage Club panel.
“With Vernon's common sense approach to underwriting and wide range of products, it will give our brokers the ability to place their clients that may not fit with mainstream lending, which fits very nicely with our current lending panel."
