    Lender categories – Lenders must provide a short profile for each category they are self-nominating for (no more than 150 words per category). Lenders must also check the declaration provided to confirm they are a member of the L&G mortgage Club lender panel.

    Broker categories – Brokers must provide a short profile for each category they are self-nominating for (no more than 150 words per category). There are also 2 declarations that Brokers must check to confirm they are:

    1. a) a member of the Legal & General Mortgage Club, and
    2. b) that they have put through £20 million in mortgage lending via L&G Mortgage Club during 2021
  2. Stage Stage 2 – Verification Process

    Brokers – The Mortgage Club reserves the right to remove any firms from the entry process who we believe do not meet the mandatory criteria outlined in the self-nomination stage.

    Any broker firms who do not meet the criteria will be informed that they are ineligible to proceed any further.

    Lenders - The Mortgage Club reserves the right to remove a lender from a particular category they have self-nominated themselves for, if we believe they do not write business in that lending area through Legal & General.

    Any lenders who are being removed from a particular category will be informed that they are ineligible to proceed any further.

  3. Stage 3 - Voting Surveys

    Those firms who successfully make it through the verification process will then be included in the usual voting survey process whereby brokers & lenders vote for those firms they wish to recognise in each category. The lender & broker profile information provided by entrants will be made available as part of the survey process to help inform voting.

    The surveys will go live at midday on Monday 7th February and will close at 5.00pm on Friday 4th March.

    During this stage, we will also launch the National Network Partner award, a submission-based award only. Eligible broker firms will be contacted directly to invite them to submit an entry.

  4. Stage Stage 4 – Finalist Announcement

    As in previous years, the finalists for each category will be unveiled via a video announcement on the Mortgage Solutions website. This year’s finalists will be announced on Friday 25th March.
