Paradigm offers members access to our highly commended Mortgage Helpdesk team, who are on hand to support members with general mortgage enquiries and help placing complex cases. If you are struggling to place a case for a client, you can call our Mortgage Helpdesk to get some guidance on which Lenders could assist, saving you a lot of time compared to doing this research yourself.
Once registered as a Paradigm member, you can contact James, Alex & Tom via the telephone helpline 03300 536061 or via the email firstname.lastname@example.org, where they endeavour to respond to your enquiry within two business hours.
In addition to this, the Mortgage Helpdesk create hints and tips guides, monthly Residential affordability stress testing and quarterly mortgage market newsletters, to help our members maximise their efficiency. These are regularly emailed out to members and can be viewed here.
Search Indemnity Insurance Matrix
In recent months, our Mortgage Helpdesk team have received an increasing number of enquiries regarding Search Indemnity Insurance, due to the Stamp Duty deadline as well as the Hackney Council delays. As such, we've launched a new Search Indemnity Insurance matrix, which provides you with the most up-to-date stance from our panel of Lenders, giving on how they view Search Indemnity Insurance for both purchases and re-mortgages.

“I use the Paradigm Mortgage Helpdesk on a very regular basis as they provide an excellent service which saves me valuable time. If I have a problem case, or one that has an unusual criteria requirement, I can contact Tom or Alex at the Helpdesk and they will source a solution for me. It saves me a huge amount of time ringing round lenders or their BDM’s, they either have the answer at their fingertips or will go and find out for me. Their response times are superb and if it is going to take a little longer then they will tell me and always come back within 24 hours.”

“I use Paradigm Mortgage Helpdesk virtually every day….I cannot rate the team highly enough. I seem to get very unusual/quirky cases which often prove difficult to place. Their advice is proving invaluable. It saves me so much time trying to source the right lender(s). They always endeavour to come up with a solution to even the most tricky cases, and I truly value their constant support and help. They are brilliant!!”
