The papers are full of it; the news bulletins are awash with it. It appears to us that buy to let, commercial property mortgages and the dangers of irresponsible lending are taking over the financial pages in a big way. The main thrust of discussion seems to be the infinitesimally low interest rates versus the lure of bricks and mortar. That, as well as inappropriate mortgage provision and what the Government and the Bank of England are doing to try and burst the buy to let bubble. All of which of course has led to accusations of lax commercial finance practices along with landlords and finance houses taking unfair advantage of the situation.

Commercial Property – Synergy Commercial Finance.

At Synergy Commercial Finance we take our responsibilities to our broker network (as well as to their and ultimately our clients) very seriously. Commercial finance regulations are introduced for a purpose and we believe that it is the finance professional’s obligation not only to respect and observe them, but also to treat their clients with the same degree of respect whilst not taking unfair advantage of the prevailing market forces.

As part of our commitment to this process we organise regular CPD broker seminars where we invite respected commercial finance professionals to talk about specific sectors in the market. In this way we help our brokers to maintain a broader understanding of the changing markets, thus placing them in a better position to advise and help their own clients.

Our next CPD event will be held next Thursday 14th April and will be hosted by Aldermore at their Leeds offices, 76 Wellington Street.

In view of the current concerns the main thrust of this presentation will centre on the potential as well as the problems of today’s buy to let market. In the same meeting, however, we will also be examining at some length the sometimes thorny issue of commercial property funding in general and we will be discussing how brokers can avoid the perils of cheap, irresponsible finance deals that could ultimately prove to be disastrous for their clients.

As part of the presentation we will be highlighting the benefits afforded by our own incomparable commercial finance funding panel, which now numbers in excess of sixty independent funders. Offering far greater funding opportunities than any conventional financial institution, this impressive funding facility ensures that our broker network will be able to source the perfect commercial finance solutions that are exactly right for their clients (and are not just a good deal for the lenders).

Ongoing competence is right at the top of our agenda and is a crucial part of our broker network policy.
