Chetwood Financial, CHL Mortgages for Intermediaries, Buy-To-Let, Mortgage Lending, Barossa Asset Purchaser Sarl, ModaMortgages, FinTech, UK, EuropeUK digital bank Chetwood Financial has acquired buy-to-let mortgage lender CHL Mortgages for Intermediaries (CMI) from Barossa Asset Purchaser Sarl.

Chetwood entered a bidding process to acquire the lender, which trades as CHL Mortgages, to grow a well-regarded business and access its experienced mortgage lending team.

Throughout the process, Chetwood, CMI and Barossa have been focused on ensuring a seamless transition between owners. CMI will continue to operate as usual with no planned downtime or impact to its lending operations.

The move will also enable Chetwood to grow its mortgage loan book and expand its reach within the mortgage intermediary market. CMI’s specialist lending team will complement Chetwood’s soon-to-launch ModaMortgages proposition.

Like CMI, ModaMortgages will be a specialist buy-to-let lender operating exclusively through intermediaries. However, there will be differences between the two—CMI offers the flexibility of blending technology and manual underwriting across a wide criteria range. At the same time, ModaMortgages will provide an automated process focused on fast decisions.

The two lenders will coexist independently, each with its own brands, products and teams that complement one another. By being part of Chetwood Financial, they will also benefit from the sharing of skills, experience and expertise.

Chetwood Financial’s founder and CEO, Andy Mielczarek, said, “CMI is an established, respected brand in the specialist lending space, and we have ambitions to grow operations further in the months and years to come.”

“The CMI proposition will complement that of our soon-to-launch ModaMortgages’ proposition perfectly. We’re excited to see both brands flourish side-by-side – and while they will operate independently, no doubt having so much specialist lending knowledge and skill within Chetwood will only contribute to their respective successes.”

Ross Turrell, Commercial Director at CMI, added, “This is a fantastic opportunity to join forces with a digital bank well established in funding buy to let mortgages through the intermediary market. Chetwood’s ambitious growth plans, which include the launch of ModaMortgages, will enable us to continue to develop our competitive product range and broad criteria offering, which has been well received by our intermediary partners.”
