Last Chance to REGISTER for a unique opportunity to hear from a BTL specialist solicitor

On Wednesday 16th September there is a unique Connect Network opportunity for you to listen to a solicitor who really understands the complexities of the specialist BTL market. If you have clients looking to incorporate portfolios held in their personal name, split titles or how to deal with article 4 HMO property, you cannot afford to miss this session!

Julian Sampson from TWM solicitors specialises with working with property investors and also is the trainer of many lenders in respect of their specialist BTL policy.

He says:  ‘We understand that there are some issues that create tension between intermediaries, lenders and acting solicitors. Our presentation, exclusive to Connect, will focus on how to solve problems with clear practical solutions. When acting on a separate representation basis for lenders, we see many borrower solicitors struggle with understanding how to structure transactions to satisfy lending policy and some of the funding peculiarities that non-bank specialist lenders impose’
