Product Transfers

A gross procuration fee of 0.25% will be paid on all residential and buy to let product transfers.

To be eligible for the fee, intermediaries need to be registered with Leek United. You can register as an intermediary by completing the Intermediary Panel Application Form here.

The process for product transfers is very straightforward and you can follow these simple steps:

  1. If you are not currently registered, you can register as an intermediary by completing the Intermediary Panel Application Form here or you can do so on the Product Transfer form.
  2. Ask your clients to provide you with a copy of the retention letter sent to them by Leek United, if you are able to obtain this please disregard steps 2 & 3. If they are unable to provide you with the exact mortgage balance contained within the retention letter please complete the Customer Information Request Form here, obtain the customers signature to confirm their consent, and email it to us securely at mort.admin@leekunited.co.uk.
  3. We will send you the relevant information required for your advice and you can then produce the ESIS for the new product (which can be obtained from the sourcing system you’re using).
  4. Complete the Product Transfer Form located here (please ensure you have read and understood our Terms and Conditions, you can view these here).
  5. We will then produce an offer and progress with the transfer (subject to meeting eligibility criteria). Please note we will not complete any cases until the offer has been signed and returned.
  6. Once the product transfer is complete we will pay the procuration fee within 14 days of completion to your mortgage club or your usual route.
     

Timeframes

Providing the product transfer form is received by the 18th of the month and the Binding Mortgage Variation Acceptance form (signed by all parties to the mortgage) is received by the 25th of the month, the transfer will take place on the 1st of the following month. Otherwise the mortgage will revert to the Leek United Standard Variable Rate if your current mortgage scheme is due to expire at the end of this current month. Please note that where there is a change to term or repayment method, additional supporting documentation will be required. For further details please refer to our Q&A document here.
