In last week’s newsletter we announced the launch of our non-resident loan product and we are pleased to report initial enquiry has been very strong.
We thought we would take the opportunity in this week’s newsletter to provide you with a handful of Case Scenarios we received during the week to paint a clear picture of what can be achieved through this innovative product, for both residential and commercial property, or for Full or Lite-DocTM income verification methods.
