Secured Business Loan Process

5 steps to obtaining a Finsec Secured Business Loan

There are 5 steps to funding in 5 to 10 days with our introducers actively involved in obtaining the necessary application, valuations and references required to complete a loan. Scroll down here to see the 5 easy steps.

Step 1 | Make the finance proposal

You send us your new case proposal either by email or online and within 4 business hours we will assess the case and send you pre-approval with terms or the draft loan documentation and the underwriting requirements to be satisfied to fund the loan.

Step 2 | Complete initial paperwork

Once you have reviewed the terms and the customer confirms with you they are happy to proceed send us the completed application form and at the same time send our panel valuer the property details so they can confirm the valuation fee payable for inspection of the property.

Step 3 | Valuation & References requested

Your customer makes the payment direct to the valuer and the valuation is arranged and while that is happening the references are requested and followed up for reply. We will agree with you what to ask for or assist if you need any help sending the reference requests.

Step 4 | Signing

Your customer will need to arrange a meeting with their solicitor to sign the legal paperwork which then needs to be returned to us. They can wait to find out the references and valuation are okay before visiting their solicitors or they can arrange this immediately to speed matters along.

Step 5 | Release of funds

Once we have received all the signed paperwork and any other documents required along with satisfactory valuation and references we will ask to speak to the customer to ensure they are happy for the loan to complete and then the loan funds will be sent to their nominated business bank account usually the same day.
