Tesco Bank announces it will pay retention procuration fees

Tesco Bank is set to pay brokers retention procuration fees of 0.3%. The move comes as Tesco Bank’s first set of intermediary mortgage customers are due to reach the end of their fixed term contracts in June 2018, as the Bank has been offering mortgages via intermediary market for close to two years.

Tesco Bank has engaged extensively with its intermediary partners to arrive at the fee and will launch a new section of its intermediary portal to help make the product transfer process as easy as possible. New system features include the ability to search for the customer’s account, generate the offer instantly to download, and the intermediary can also accept and schedule when the transfer should take effect from on the customers’ behalf.    

Julian Hartley, Director of Mortgages, Savings and Loans said:

We are delighted to announce our new retention procuration fees today, as we believe they recognise the effort of the broker within the mortgage application process. We know that product transfers are an important issue for the intermediary market, and it is our intention to deliver a best-in-class broker experience that is quick and simple.
