Stamp duty deadline

New business changes at Foundation, to support the stamp duty deadline

  • First and foremost, we are still accepting new business as normal and continuing to make the underwriting process as efficient as possible for you and your clients.
  • We are also aware that the clock is ticking on completing new and existing business before the Stamp Duty deadline. So, we have taken steps to ensure we are expediting pipeline cases where possible.
  • Our in-house servicing offers total control when it comes to the allocation, or reallocation, of resources and the flexibility of our highly experienced team offers us the ability to focus our attention on servicing areas of high demand.
  • In addition to their ‘normal’ broker support role - we have tasked our internal and regional BDMs with actively chasing the final requirements on all applications.
  • This extra BDM support will allow our underwriters to concentrate on reviewing the case with all requirements met, to bring it to offer.
  • We all know there are many obstacles along the current mortgage chain, and we of course are unable to guarantee that cases will complete before the end of March next year, but we will be doing all we can to move your applications forward as quickly as possible.
