Commercial interest drives TMA/BuildLoan seminars

The Mortgage Alliance says renewed interest in the commercial market has resulted in strong demand for its upcoming seminar co-hosted with BuildLoan.

The seminar is open to all directly authorised brokers and take place at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon on Tuesday 21st April.

As well as an update on the growing self-build and renovation market from BuildLoan, a number of providers will also be delivering presentations at the event.

Other sessions on the day include a focus on the opportunities in the commercial market from Abbey and a look at debt management solutions from Newtomorrow Broker Services.

Each broker who attends the seminar will automatically be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win two tickets to see Take That at Wembley on 1st July 2009. The prize includes tickets within the corporate box and includes full corporate hospitality with several other TMA intermediaries, hosted by TMA.
