Property finance and secured lending

Advisory service on commercial property funding and security for corporate and commercial banks, and other financial institutions.

Property deals can generate profitable business for finance providers, but only if the funding and security arrangements are tied down effectively. With many years' experience and expertise in this area, Weightmans can help you avoid the pitfalls and minimise any risks.

Our specialist banking, property and construction lawyers work closely with you on every aspect of a property transaction, from due diligence to the perfection of your security.

We act for major high street banks and financial institutions, providing advice on funding agreements and the creation of security over freehold and leasehold property. Our experience includes lending transactions from single land sites to complex property portfolios and mixed use development schemes.

We can advise you on the different forms of security and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each, acting as your independent solicitors or in conjunction with your customer. As independent advisers, we understand your reputation is on the line and take every step necessary to protect it.

You can choose to have a basic or complete assessment of your existing security to ensure your interests – and ultimately your bottom line – are safely protected. We'll advise you on the enforceability and effectiveness of your security by explaining rights and obligations in the context of real-life scenarios.
