“This is one of several enhancements we’re looking to make this year as we continue to listen to market demand and evolve our offering to demonstrate our commitment to support brokers and borrowers.

Being able to receive up to 15% more on Day 1 is an extremely appealing proposition and an option which is very rare to find in the market, which is why we feel very confident this will be significant in supporting our brokers and their clients.”

“We’ve been in the game for over a decade now and the demand for refurbishment bridging loans remains very strong, with investors increasingly looking at refurbishment and development opportunities to either improve the property, increase yield or for capital gain.”

We fully recognise that while there are many challenges in the current market, there are still a significant number of borrowers who are hungry to find competitive options to enable them to take advantage of investment opportunities.
