Nottingham Building Society’s subsidiary Nottingham Mortgage Services is now owned by Belvoir Group PLC. As part of this move, the building society’s mortgage and protection services are now being delivered by Mortgage Advice Bureau - Brook Financial Services, who are also part of Belvoir Group PLC.

As a result, any customers seeking mortgage and protection advice from Nottingham Building Society, in-branch and over the phone, will get advice from Mortgage Advice Bureau - Brook Financial Services advisers.

The new partnership also unlocks access to digital tools which Nottingham Building Society said will be key to its growth ambition. Digital-first customers can now get mortgage advice through the newly-launched Beehive Money app and website. When Beehive users are ready to speak to an adviser then they will also be put in touch with expert advisers from Mortgage Advice Bureau – Brook Financial Services.

Speaking about the partnership, Peter Brodnicki, CEO of Mortgage Advice Bureau, commented: “We’re excited to be entering this unique partnership with The Nottingham. The Society is a modern, mutual organisation with a long legacy of doing the right thing by its members and it’s great to know that with this partnership, we will have the opportunity to provide digital-led, in-app mortgage and protection advice, through our experienced advisers who will be helping tens of thousands achieve their home buying goals.”

And Belvoir Group PLC, which operates one of the largest property franchise groups in the UK, said the agreement deepens its strategic alliance with The Nottingham after it undertook all of the building society's agency and letting services in 2020. With CEO of the Belvoir Group, Dorian Gonsalves, commented, “We’re delighted to extend our partnership with The Nottingham and enable the continuation of mortgage and protection advice to the Society’s members and to new members in the Beehive Money app through our team of MAB advisers. Our strategic alliance is embedding really well across the network for estate agency and together we can help people not only find their new home but fund it also with the right mortgage for them.”

As part of the move, Nottingham Mortgage Service’s 27 team members have moved over to Mortgage Advice Bureau - Brook Financial Services and will continue to serve The Nottingham branches and members, but as appointed representatives of Mortgage Advice Bureau.
