We've partnered with Onfido!

We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Onfido today. 

By incorporating Onfido’s proprietary technology into our digital application system, Buy-to-Let applicants can now confirm their identity online, instead of the need for paper forms. Their brokers can prove a client’s identity by simply uploading a photo of one identity document to LendInvest’s application portal (e.g. passport or driving licence) along with a ‘selfie’ photo of the applicant taken with their mobile phone.

We are constantly looking to alleviate the frustrations our customers are most vocal about when dealing with their mortgage applications, this will make the process easier for both brokers and their clients.

Christian Faes, Co-Founder & CEO of LendInvest, commented: “Working with Onfido is a great example of two fintech companies working together to solve an all-too-common financial services problem. We are continually developing our own technology tools and systems in-house to make the borrower journey through our products simpler, faster and more efficient. Wherever it makes sense, we’ll always integrate these with other technology leaders’ complementary tools for the added benefit of our customers.”

Hussayn Kasai, Co-Founder & CEO of Onfido, added: “We live in an increasingly online world, and in-person or paper-based processes are no longer fit for purpose. There’s increasing demand from both brokers and consumers for a fast, frictionless and secure lending experience, and we’re proud to work with market-leading companies like LendInvest to deliver that.”
