Valuation and legals

We take our legal and valuation requirements very seriously. Our loan evaluation process is designed to make this as efficient and reliable as possible.

      • Independent security valuation: We will carry out independent valuation of the borrower’s security in order to confirm how much we can lend against the property.
      • Legal conveyance: We will instruct our solicitors to work on your client’s mortgage. Fees are typically charged directly to the borrower by the solicitor.
