Vida Homeloans, the specialist mortgage lender, is launching in Scotland with its range of criteria-driven products as part of its ambitious growth plans.

Vida’s wide range of specialist products are now available to those purchasing or remortgaging Scottish residential and buy to let properties, which includes its limited company, houses in multiple occupation and portfolio propositions.

Kenny Clark, who has formerly worked at HSBC and the Royal Bank of Scotland, has been appointed as Vida’s Key Account Manager in Scotland, and will be the primary point of contact for intermediaries.

Kenny Clark says of his appointment: “I am really pleased to be joining Vida at such an exciting time in its expansion plans.

“I look forward to representing Vida in Scotland and to be the primary point of contact for Scottish brokers. I can see Vida’s unique BTL and Expat propositions being very popular in key Scottish cities such as Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh.”

Ian McGrail, Director at First Mortgage believes Vida’s launch into the Scottish market is a positive one: “Here at First Mortgage, we have just launched a specialist lending team to cater for our extensive network of branches in Scotland so this news is very welcome indeed.

“I am sure we will be able to help many more customers with the addition of Vida Homeloans and I look forward to working together in the near future.”

On the 2nd and 3rd October 2018, Vida Homeloans will be hosting two launch events – one in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh – to celebrate the launch. You can find more details of the events on the Vida Homeloans website.

Guy Batchelor, Sales and Marketing Director at Vida Homeloans, says: “I am very pleased to be announcing the launch of our proposition into Scotland.

I believe our specialist products will be popular with Scottish brokers and their clients, and I hope we can continue to help more intermediaries get specialist cases off their desks.”

Vida’s criteria-driven lending proposition has had a positive impact on the specialist lending sector since launch, and the business now has 10,000 intermediaries registered to conduct business. Vida has also achieved three securitisations worth more than £1 billion and has received eight industry awards.  Vida uses the latest technology to support and inform human decisions.
