  • Any property given as security which may include your home, may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or other debts secured on it.
    All lending is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business.
    You should not apply for an amount that you can not comfortably afford to repay now and in the future to avoid the possibility of legal action.
