Intermediary news roundup – May 2024

Welcome to our news round up for May 2024. Have a look through what we’ve been up to and where we’ve been!

This month, we’re thrilled to share insights into our latest ventures, from innovative lending strategies and significant rate reductions to making our large loan product accessible to all brokers. Plus, we’ve participated in many exciting events.


In the Press

Throughout May, we have seen a lot of articles published. Here is a selection.  


Self-Build Case Study

Dudley Building Society and self-build brokerage Mayflower Mortgage And Finance Ltd completed a £1.4 million self-build remortgage,  demonstrating the Society’s flexibility on construction type and its ability to make sensible lending decisions.

The £1,371,000 remortgage was for a Cotswolds-based property with a final valuation of £2.5 million.

The property is unique in that it features a steel portal frame with timber, framed with over 75% steel cladding to elevations, along with the roof clad in steel profile sheeting.

Mortgage Rate Reduction

On the 28th of May , Dudley Building Society made a series of significant rate cuts across its residential, buy-to-let (BTL), holiday let, expat, and self-build mortgages.

Our distribution director Robert Oliver said: “We are excited to be making significant rate cuts across our mortgage range.

These reductions, combined with our flexible and personal approach to underwriting, and our dedication to maintaining our service levels, means we can support more brokers and their clients. 

“This marks our second rate cut of the year as we continue to offer brokers competitively priced specialist mortgages.”
