Hands up if you're ready for a faster, more flexible approach to auction finance.
At Roma we understand that the property auction route is all about getting a good deal and completing it quickly. The rewards can be high, but so is the risk. Making it work demands decisive bidding and fast-moving lending. It’s your clients under the hammer if they can’t bid confidently, and meet those short payment deadlines.
We can provide an AIP in advance of an auction so your client has certainty and a ceiling price giving them the chance to bid confidently. We can consider a variety of property types, constructions, credit profiles, income and offer both first and second charge bridging loans, making us a lender less ordinary.
- Rates from 0.75%
- LTV up to 70%
- Loans from £75,000 to £3 million
- Manual underwriting – every case considered individually
- Talk directly to the underwriter for quick decisions and completions
- We lend across England, Scotland and Wales
Got a question?
Auction finance is simply another term for bridging or short term finance. It is used to purchase properties at auction because it can be arranged extremely quickly and fits neatly into the purchasing timescales of the auction houses. Usually properties at auction are required to complete with 28 days.
Typically any kind of residential, semi commercial or commercial property can be bought at auction. The properties do not necessarily need to be habitable to be eligible for auction finance.
Six steps from enquiry
Over many years of arranging bridging finance, the Roma team has refined the process to make it hassle-free and responsive. Above all to make it quick, because property deadlines are tight deadlines.
It takes lending less ordinary to fast-track cases, twin-track the legals and the underwriting… do whatever it takes to drive the sale forward.
Yet no matter how rapidly we’re working, we always meet the borrower, take the trouble to understand what makes each case different, and keep everyone informed at every stage.
Need to complete within 48 hours? We can run stages 2 – 5 simultaneously, and may even release funds to our solicitor before the due diligence process has been completed.
1. Initial enquiry
Call us on 0161 817 7480, email or complete the enquiry form and your loan is on its way.
2. Agreement in principle
The AIP accelerates the process by telling you exactly which documents we need before we can underwrite your loan, also providing Open Banking instructions.
3. Valuation and borrower meeting
We’ll get a third party valuation arranged ASAP, and we never lend until we’ve met the borrower and understood the case.
4. Confirm terms
After we’ve met the borrower and underwritten the case, we will confirm the loan terms.
5. Instruct solicitors
Once terms are accepted, we will instruct our solicitor to send legal papers required for completion to your solicitor.
Funds are released and we might also release funds to your solicitor before the due diligence process has been completed.
