Craig Hall, Head of Broker Relationships and Propositions, Legal & General Mortgage Club:

"At Legal & General Mortgage Club we’re determined to ensure the best possible outcomes for advisers and customers. In a world where borrowers circumstances are getting more complex and require more specialist mortgage solutions the role of the mortgage adviser has never been more crucial. We know from our Value of Advice research that nearly all (95%) of people who used an adviser would recommend their family and friends do the same, and we want to make sure borrowers continue to feel this benefit.

"Through the launch of SmartrRefer we want to reassure our members that if they don’t feel comfortable advising on a specific case we will work with them and our carefully selected partners to provide the best advice for the borrower. Ensuring all advisers in the Mortgage Club have the key to accessing the most comprehensive and detailed advice, through a third-party specialist."
