Allow plenty of time to arrange your funding, especially if you are going to an institutional lender with a property based proposal. Think of a reasonable time, double it….. then double it again!

Very few lenders are moving with any speed or sense of urgency and even when they have finished deliberating, most of their solicitors or security departments manage to slow the job down.

Even pushing all parties along, as I do, I’ve had matters complete this year after 18 months when 6 should have been ample and after 6 months when 6 weeks would have been reasonable.

If you or your clients haven’t got the time, patience or stamina for the long slog, call me!
