Finding property finance for your business can be challenging. As ex lenders we know how banks work from the inside out. We have a large panel of selected lenders that cater from startup businesses through to listed companies and our enhanced KYL (Know Your Lender) process ensures we understand the in-depth criteria that lenders each work to. Each lender is carefully selected and vetted to ensure we understand how they are funded and that their business is well capitalized to ensure they deliver the funding.
We pre-underwrite your application undertaking a full financial review asking the questions that the lenders will commonly raise. This is supported by our detailed and specialist lending report providing the information that the lender requires with a calculated affordability assessment. This then makes it clear for our lenders to underwrite and therefore approving your application quickly.
Our lending panel covers a large range of the market, so this enables us to take you to a high street bank or one of our specialist lenders depending on your requirements saving you time and money. We stay with our clients throughout the term of the loan and we will often work with you to look at how we can improve your finance options at the end of your term and be on hand if you have any problems.
