    Terms of Business

    By joining our panel you agree to accept our general terms of business for intermediaries, as follows. The Society reserves the right to remove you from its intermediary panel if you do not adhere to the general terms. We reserve the right to request further information as needed:


    It is your responsibility to ensure that:

    • You always have your customer’s authority to act on their behalf, and their permission to pass information to the Society
    • Your customer is fully aware, that when the Society searches their credit file to assess either an AIP or Application, a record of that search will be left (i.e. it will leave a hard footprint on the customers records)
    • You have all the appropriate, current authorisations from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to submit applications
    • You will hold the relevant permissions with the FCA to conduct Consumer Credit Activities and Professional Indemnity Insurance cover at all times

    The Society can carry out ongoing reviews when required to assess your membership of the panel and we reserve the right to terminate your membership at any time.
