How we make bridging finance effortless for our clients
For a client using bridging finance, certainty and fast access to funds are always at the forefront of their expectations. This is because, by its very nature, bridging finance should be fast and flexible compared to traditional funding methods, such as mortgages.
At mtf, we have not lost sight of this at a time when other lenders are moving on to computer banking models and lengthy application processes.
It is important to us that our brokers, introducers, and clients know they are dealing with people and not a corporation. Therefore, we go to great lengths to ensure that we deliver an open, communicative, and transparent service, and take the time to listen and fully consider each application. From start to finish there is direct dialogue with a decision maker who has the ability to make executive, pragmatic decisions and to drive a case home to completion.
We have built our underwriting process around a simple idea; the value of a property and the rationale of a loan are the most relevant criteria when assessing any bridging finance application.
As speed is such a vital element of bridging finance it’s important that all parties involved move swiftly because if they cannot complete to the borrower’s schedule, the client could miss out on an opportunity. Therefore, mtf has its own legal underwriting team who is responsible for driving the legal process. We feel by having a dedicated team, working in tandem with external lawyers, mtf significantly reduces any chance of delay or misunderstanding.
mtf is committed to building strong relationships. We have never over promised or under delivered because we don’t want to let our brokers or clients down. We always make sure we are continuously working hard to meet requirements.
In a recent example, a client wanted to purchase an investment property and required funds within a fortnight. The client was in Jamaica at the time and due to other commitments, was unable to come back to the UK in time to verify their identification documents. Time was fast running out for the client as he was about to lose an investment purchase.
So, we decided that I would fly out to Jamaica to meet the client, verify his ID, and witness the signing of the legal documents. I immediately flew back with all the signed documents allowing us to proceed with the loan. The client was then able to purchase the investment property with the funds from mtf with days to spare.
It’s important to note that this was for a £150,000 loan, not that of a million pounds plus, demonstrating how mtf will go the extra mile for the client, regardless of the loan amount requested.
Most lenders promise a great and fast service. At mtf, we understand that a promise is only good when it is delivered. We have built the company’s reputation around a strong service proposition, by being open and communicative and running an efficient operation. We are grateful to have received multiple industry awards in recognition of our approach to lending and the exceptional service we consistently deliver.
