Bridging and development lender Roma Finance has expanded into Scotland.
Its Scottish operation will be headed by bridging specialist George Tuffin.
Roma has recently doubled its sales and underwriting teams and has said it will be looking to recruit further sales staff to support its expansion north of the border.
Roma offers a range of products and a fast-track completion service, with most cases completing in 15 days.
Its criteria caters for a range of customers, including landlords and property professionals looking to acquire property for renovation and refurbishment.
Residential investment property, semi-commercial units and commercial buildings are all covered.
Roma head of sales Tracey Martin (pictured) says: “We see this launch into Scotland as a viable opportunity for the extension of our services. We now have extensive sales and underwriting teams in place, allowing us to continue to expand.”
