Just Mortgages enters new build deal

Broker firm Just Mortgages has entered an initiative to create new build leads for advisers in its self-employed arm.

Under the initiative self-employed brokers working under the Just Mortgages banner will gain access to a number of leads secured by Just's new build division.

The division works with 25 developers across 150 sites in the UK. The brokers will now be able to work on allocated developments to provide mortgage advice to potential buyers.

According to Just Mortgages, self-employed brokers who sign up for the new build mortgage advice scheme will cover the developments for up to nine months and earn 60 per cent commission.

Paul Wilson, head of new build at Just Mortgages, said: "We are currently working with a large number of developers across the UK, some that will build 500 units this year, so we are looking for our self-employed brokers to assist in supporting the sites, to ensure potential buyers have all the help and support they need.

"This offers the potential for hundreds of new leads, so a fantastic opportunity for any self-employed brokers looking to boost their businesses."

Just stated that all self-employed brokers who want to advise on the new build sites will be offered new build and Help to Buy training from the division.

Carl Parker, head of the Just Mortgages self-employed division, added: "We are also keen to speak to any brokers, particularly those already self-employed, that want more support than they are currently getting."

This is the latest in a string of moves from Just to back its self-employed arm, in which it is planning to more than double the number of advisers over the next three years.

It announced a digital and social media solution to assist its brokers last month.
