Our main financing market is in the purchase , development and refinance of care homes from family run 12 bed units for the elderly or 6 bed niche market homes for challenging behaviour through to specialist 120 bed dementia homes.

"Dear Mark,

Thank you for assisting us with the refinancing of our three homes. Not only has this improved our cash flow but also we got out of an expensive hedge rate.

You have also been very helpful in guiding and explaining different products that are on the market throughout the process until completion.

If you have any clients who want to speak to us about our experience please do not hesitate to give out our number. We would recommend you anytime.

Mr B. and Mrs A. Ubhee"                                                          (owners of 3 homes)

“ Having bought our first home in 2001, we were looking to further expand the home after 12 months. Our current lenders were not interested because we had not been trading for a full 3 years. Very frustrated, we contacted Mark Widdows at Global Business Finance, who with seamless efficiency told us what he could achieve in terms of funding and interest rates, which was better than our current deal and gave us the additional finds we needed. As good to his word, within four weeks we were signing the loan agreement.

During the building work for the home, we found the opportunity to purchase another local home, which was too good to miss. Global also managed to arrange funds which allowed us to make the purchase and improve the property. With their support we have also just completed our first new build, funded using the same bank.

In today’s world, the relationship with your bank manager is often tenuous, many do not have the power you need to make decisions and have to refer to superiors. Global have been a constant for us, giving us realistic advice, enabling us to expand when we needed.

Mark Widdows has always delivered, he has been a useful sounding board on the current market place, and nothing is ever too much trouble. ”
