“Nitecrest have been using XL Business Finance to fund its capital expenditure since the business started trading some 10 years ago. As a new start business XL Business Finance were able to arrange finance for two large machines costing around £200k each. We continue to use them as they provide a high level of service and expertise. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Bridging for property developer

Friday, August 14th, 2020

A South West based property developer contacted us about raising a large amount of finance to purchase a block of flats.

The funding was required urgently to avoid missing out on an opportunity.  The developer had a 30% deposit and only required short term funding due to the imminent sale of another property which would fund the flat purchase.
