Business Lending and Security

We advise banks and other financial institutions who lend money.

We help to protect their financial investments by taking securities over any type of property in the UK.

Our team has a wealth of experience in acting for providers of finance to businesses. This covers aspects of lending and security work including:

  • Preparation of security deeds, including charge documents, facility letters, ranking agreements and more specialised deeds.
  • Dealing with large portfolios of properties.
  • Cross-border deals where our dual-qualified lawyers are able to take security over both Scottish and English properties.
  • Unrivalled expertise in lending to the licensed trade with over 30 years’ experience in acting for a major Scottish brewer.

Added to these skills and experience is a strong business sense.

Our pragmatic commercial view allied with our experienced and skilled personnel, we are able to ensure that deals are completed on time and on budget.

We understand the competitive nature of the lending market and how important it is to preserve and enhance the good relationship between lenders and borrowers.

We enjoy working closely with lenders at every stage of a transaction to ensure a suitable level of feedback and input.

We understand how lenders work and what they want. We offer more than just technical expertise, though we certainly have that on tap. Our depth of experience, technical skills, and business acumen ensures every transaction is dealt with smoothly and efficiently: without fuss, within budget and on time.
