For three years now, we have maintained our position in the Buy-to-Let market and continue to be seen as the leading specialist lender in this area. This award is hugely significant as it is voted for by the all-important consumer. It further supports our decision to bring both BTL propositions together under the multi-award winning Kensington brand.
Ian Hughes, Head of Product Development along with Ian Hester, Product Development Analyst collected the award last night.
Ian Hughes commented, “We are delighted to have won this award for the third year running during What Mortgage’s 25th celebration of recognising and rewarding the best businesses in the UK’s mortgage and personal finance markets. These awards are particularly important to us as they are voted for by the consumers who have had a positive experience of excellent customer service, good products and good communication. We were up against strong competition from Accord Mortgages, BM Solutions, Halifax, Keystone Property Finance and The Mortgage Works.
“In addition, we were highly commended in the Best Specialist Lender category (What Mortgage) this year”.
What Mortgage commented:
“The What Mortgage team is delighted to reveal the winners of the 2018 What Mortgage Awards. This is a special year as the What Mortgage Awards celebrates its 25th anniversary – that’s 25 years of recognising and rewarding the best businesses in the UK’s mortgage and personal finance markets.
The voting process for the awards is split into two phases. The first was the “Call for nominations” which lasted for four weeks. This involves posting the categories for the various awards on the What Mortgage website and we ask our online visitors to nominate the businesses with which they have had positive experiences. We then take that data and collate it to form our shortlist. In the second part of the voting process, which lasts for 17 weeks, we list the nominees on our website and ask consumers to vote for their winners from the shortlist and give a rating score out of 5.
“Well done to every business that was nominated during the process and many congratulations to all of our winners and highly commended organisations.”
