Secured Business Loans

Finsec can lend to limited companies and partnerships, whether established businesses or new starts and we like to help even when other lenders won’t. We do not use automated decisions or credit scoring, we apply the human touch to every case and every decision is made by one of our experienced team. This means we can consider cases others won’t and means we can make a loan even when an application has failed elsewhere.

Answers to some common questions.
We lend up to £150,000 plus any fees requested to be added.
Any kind of business which is a limited company or a partnership, even if it is a new start, so long as either the directors, partners, shareholders or other stakeholders are willing to enter a personal guarantee secured against their property, or in some cases where the business owns property, use this as security.
We lend on residential owner occupied or investment property or semi commercial property situated in England and Wales. The guarantor or borrower must be the registered proprietor, in other words the owner, of the property offered as security. Where there is already a first mortgage we can usually lend a second mortgage or even in some cases a third mortgage.
No all loans are secured on property. We can accept residential owner occupied or investment property or semi commercial property situated in England and Wales. Guarantors may be anxious about borrowing against their home but this isn’t necessary as a Finsec business loan can be secured against a buy to let property, second home or a semi commercial or other investment property.

Buy To Let

Individuals can borrow for any purpose using their buy to let property as security for a loan of up to £100,000 in most cases. The amount we can lend will depend on the value of the property and the amount of rent received from an assured shorthold tenancy agreement or lease agreement, however in some cases we can consider all other income sources and not just rental income or income from property. This can be useful when the property is being refurbished and before new tenants are found or the property is to be sold or transferred.

When the individual wants the loan to be secured on a buy to let or other investment property (or properties) instead of their home then the loan will usually be made as an unregulated buy to let mortgage contract. In some cases the borrower will be regarded as a consumer rather than business borrower and a consumer buy to let mortgage contract will be offered. This is often referred to as CBTL instead of BTL and will usually apply to a borrower who has only one property that they rent out. CBTL means a Consumer Buy To Let mortgage but like BTL it doesn’t necessarily mean the loan is a mortgage to buy property to let but rather it is borrowing that is secured on a property that is let or rented out or intended to be rented out. Finsec can lend both on BTL or CBTL.

For more information on the terms applying to BTL and CBTL loans see the General Information applicable to Second Charge Secured Loans for Individuals

Second Charge Secured Loans for Individuals

Second Charge Secured Loans for Individuals

Finsec provides loans to individuals for most personal purposes as well as business purposes. Loans to individuals are secured by a second mortgage and, where the security is owner occupied residential property, the loan will be made as a regulated second mortgage contract only as a result of an advised sale. The money from the loan will be sent to the individual borrower’s bank account or if they request it, to repay other creditors or to their solicitors in certain cases. This kind of loan can also be used by sole traders using their home as security when they want the money for business purposes.

Loans are also available to individuals using buy to let property instead of owner occupied residential property, and the rates and terms are the same in most cases, see our Buy To Let BTL product for more information.

Representative Example

If you borrow £18,000 over 10 years at an interest rate of 20.8% APRC (fixed) you would pay £336.95 per month. The total charge for credit would be £22,434.00. The total amount repayable would be £40,434.00. A broker fee and or advice fee may be payable which would increase the total amount repayable and the APRC. You should ask your adviser or broker what fee they will charge and request an illustration from them. For example, if your broker charged you a fee of 10% based on a loan of £18,000 the rate for comparison would be 24.6% APRC. The annual percentage rate of charge (APRC) is the total cost of the loan expressed as an annual percentage and is provided to help you compare different offers. It includes all the costs you must pay in obtaining the loan and all the costs you must pay during the life of the loan.

Other costs may be payable that are not included in the total cost of credit. For example, if you repay the loan early or if you do not pay on time. In the event of non-payment there are arrears charges and legal costs that may be charged in enforcing our mortgage or protecting our security in the event of non-compliance.

Finsec loans are repayable by monthly instalments due one month after the date of the loan and the same day each month thereafter for between 36 and 300 months dependent on the possible duration of the loan.

Compliance with the terms and conditions of the loan including making all instalment payments on time and not late will ensure repayment of the total amount of credit.

Finsec will require a professional valuation of the security property to be carried out by an approved valuer prior to making a binding offer. The cost of the valuation will be specified by the broker advising and arranging the loan and may be paid by the applicant or the broker. The broker is responsible for arranging the valuation in all cases.

There is no obligation to obtain ancillary services or products from Finsec. Borrowers are required to be in possession of valid buildings insurance for the duration of the mortgage and can choose to purchase this from any authorised insurer.

Possible consequences of non-compliance with the commitments linked to the regulated mortgage contract.

  • Finsec expects you to maintain repayments on time and in full. If you do not you must pay Finsec any costs that it incurs as a result of that non-payment, including its administration costs (which are set out in its standard tariff of charges). You must pay interest on any missed payments and on any charges that you incur. If any sum remains unpaid for 21 days after it has become due then after the expiry of a default notice the full balance of the account may become due;
  • Finsec expects you to keep the property in a state of good repair and not do anything to devalue it. If you do not do so Finsec may take steps to protect its security, including carrying out the repairs on your behalf (the cost of which you must pay).
  • Finsec expects you to have appropriate building insurance in place during the term of your mortgage. If you do not Finsec may take out such insurance on your behalf and charge you its costs of doing so;
  • Finsec expects you not to make any structural alterations to the property or change the use without first obtaining Finsec’s written consent. If you do you must pay Finsec any losses that it incurs as a result of your actions. If Finsec believes that your actions have threatened the value of its security it may take steps to protect that security;
  • You must seek Finsec’s written consent before granting a lease or licence in respect of the property or allowing any other person to occupy the property on any basis whatsoever. If you do not do so you must pay Finsec any losses that it incurs as a result of your actions. If Finsec believes that your actions have threatened the value of its security it may take steps to protect that security.
  • Where the property is leasehold Finsec expects you to comply with all terms of the lease. If you do not Finsec may take steps to comply with those obligations on your behalf and you must pay the costs of it doing so.
  • If Finsec believe that legal action is necessary as a result of any default by you its legal costs will be added to your account.
