Important Information & Legal Documents

Before investing in any of our loan products it is extremely important that you read and familiarise yourself with the documents below.

The template legal charge documents are examples of the documents used by our solicitor which are signed by ourselves and the borrower(s) before a loan is made. The flowchart recovery documents detail the legal process we follow when a loan goes into late-paying status.

In addition to the documents below you should also read the individual T & Cs for the individual product or loan you are interested in, which is available when you click ‘More Info’ next to the particular product/loan.

Please note: All the listed secured loans are not regulated mortgage contracts because they are either second charge business loans which are excluded from the definition of a regulated mortgage contract, buy-to-let agreements or loans secured against commercial property.
