What is the application process like? +

Step 1: An initial consultation in which we gather the necessary information about you, your background, and the project for which funds are required.

Step 3: We negotiate preliminary terms with prospective lenders and then present these options to you.

Step 4: We will discuss the pros and cons of each lender (add selected or chosen), and we can decide between us which solutions we wish to pursue.

Step 5: We further negotiate the overall package, including pricing, loan structure, loan covenants, timing, documentary requirements, and so on.

Step 6: We present you with the best solution, and you decide whether or not to proceed.

Step 7: If you decide to proceed with an application, we will agree on engagement terms, and our team will then manage the entire process from there.

Step 8: Completion - once all legalities have been finalised the funds are released to the borrower.

Do you charge fees? +

Our fees and charging structure will always be outlined to you in our first contact. We are generally compensated by the lenders on our panel; however, for loans under £200k for bridging and development finance, a brokerage fee may be applied. Our fee for all commercial mortgage enquiries roughly begins at £995.

How many lenders do you have access to? +
