The Lloyds Banking Group which includes lenders such as Halifax and BM Solutions have recently introduced changes to their process of registering appointed representatives from the Connect Mortgages network to their broker panel. These changes will affect advisers looking to register for: (i) the first time, as well as
(ii) advisers already registered
The new process requires two dedicated Connected Administrators (one primary and one deputy) to be registered as the administrator for the appointed representative firm via their lender-issued Panel Number. Therefore, if you feel that you will need to use a lender from the Lloyds Banking Group in the near future, then please contact the Connect Mortgages Registrations Team or Members Support at the earliest opportunity. For further information on what you need to do, please read on.
