Tom Jacob, director of product and marketing at Foundation Home Loans, said: “As a lender, we’re always looking to be on the front foot when it comes to supporting borrowers and our intermediary partners, and this repricing across our core owner-occupier and BTL product ranges represents a highly positive move in what has been a testing time for a variety of borrowers. We hope the additional products introduced to our owner occupier range will give our intermediary partners and their clients more options when looking for a specialist solution.”
