About our deal process

We are always updating our process to ensure it is as efficient as possible. Here at LendInvest, we strive to ensure working with us is as smooth as possible. In order to do that, we have refined and perfected our enquiry and application process for your ease of use.

Step 1

  • Our underwriters will assess your case.
  • If the enquiry is approved, we’ll email you a Letter of Offer and an application form.

Step 2

  • Email the completed and signed application form to [email protected].
  • Your allocated Case Manager will contact your client to obtain payment for the valuation fee.
  • Once the payment is received we will carry out our initial due diligence checks on the borrower.
  • Our underwriting team will then review the application and due diligence.
  • If the application is approved we will instruct valuers and solicitors from our approved panel.
  • Your Case Manager will send you an email to confirm that the application has been approved. The email may include a list of any additional borrower information we need from you, like bank statements or a completed standing order mandate.

Step 3

  • Once the valuer receives instruction they will contact your client to arrange access to the property.
  • On receipt of a valuation report our underwriters will conduct a full case assessment.
  • If the property valuation does not match the value initially stated on the application documents, we may update the Letter of Offer.

Step 4

  • Our solicitors will need an undertaking from the borrower’s solicitor before any legal work begins.
  • The cost of this work will typically be charged directly to the borrower by the solicitor. The fee will be variable, depending on each borrower’s case and will be additional to any charges made by any other solicitors working on their behalf.
  • Once all requisitions are satisfied, we are able to complete the loan.

Step 5

  • Prior to completion, we will call your client directly to confirm the loan details and make post-settlement servicing arrangements.
  • After our final underwriting checks have been made, the borrower’s funds will be sent to our solicitors.
  • Your fee will be paid within 24 hours of our solicitor’s confirming the completion.
