Legal & General Mortgage Club announces updates to SmartrCriteria

Legal & General Mortgage Club has today announced a number of improvements to SmartrCriteria, its digital user-friendly criteria search system, following feedback from advisers.

3 May 2019


SmartrCriteria offers advisers 394,000 criteria outcomes from over 95 lenders across the Residential, Buy to Let and New Build sector, to help determine the best possible outcome for their customers as quickly as possible. 3,300 members of Legal & General Mortgage Club are currently signed up to use the tool.  

The system will now include lender hyperlinks on the results page to allow advisers to click through directly to the lender, making the process to complete the mortgage as straightforward as possible. Advisers will now also be able to print out lender outcomes, so that they have a physical record to discuss with their customers.

In addition to the criteria search on a specific customer, the enhanced system will also include a generic search function to enable advisers to find the lenders that deal with certain types of business. Selected key partners will also be able to access their proc fee history within ClubHub, and Legal & General Mortgage Club is working with advisers to roll this out further.
