  • Hotels

Qualifying for finance 

If you are looking to achieve the very best rates specific industry experience is key. It is worth noting that industry experience is transferable e.g. if you have run a guest house in the past and are now looking to purchase a leisure park your application will be considered.

If you have no experience in the industry, there are still options. Just expect rates to be slightly higher. To support your application, lenders like to see you are professional. They will be interested in the management structure of your business – CVs to show the experience of key employees will help. They will also want to see a detailed business plan showing projected profit and loss and cash flow forecast.

We will work with you to package your application to ensure it stands the best chance of being accepted.
