Our 2023 year to date real estate finance roundup
We have extensive experience advising alternative providers of finance, including a number of peer- to-peer syndicates, in relation to both lending and collateralisation in Scotland. We routinely assist a number of the major players in the UK P2P market on real estate, development and bridging transactions and have originated suites of Scots law compliant template documentation for many.
