Simplifying the process

Commercial lending can, at times, be complex. Our specialist broker team are highly experienced so when we assess a deal we will always look to understand the underlying strategy of the business as well as the immediate requirements to provide the most suitable solution.

Our Broker team are based across mainland UK and work closely with our business teams who support customers on a day to day basis. Our aim is to build strong relationships with brokers and provide a dedicated Broker Business Development Manager.

The team undertake an initial desktop review of deals, usually within 4 working hours and provide indicative terms where possible (subject to normal due diligence and credit underwriting). Where indicative terms are acceptable customers will be allocated a local Relationship Manager to undertake a full assessment and provide a credit backed offer within 7 working days of receiving all necessary information.

Helping to make dreams become a reality

London city worker Denise Hill has started a new life as a guest house owner in the Kent countryside thanks to a six-figure loan from NatWest. Denise, who is from Bromley, purchased the Langmead Guest House in Ramsgate from its previous owners with a £242,000 flexible business loan from NatWest. The funding enabled Denise to leave her former job as a quality manager for a housing association in Croydon, to fulfil her aspiration of starting her own business as a guest house manager.

The Langmead Guest House appeared on Channel 4’s popular Four in a Bed programme in 2016 and was previously owned by husband and wife duo Derek and Lynne Love for 27 years. Denise now plans to give the guest house a new lease of life, as well as develop a calendar of community focused walking trips.

She said: “I have a friend who quit an office job in London to become a campsite manager and when I saw how happy this friend was, I knew I wanted to do something similar. I realise it will be a challenge, but I don’t want to spend the next 12 years of my working life behind a desk. I’ve always wanted to be my own boss and now thanks to the funding from NatWest I am able to take the plunge and start my very own business venture. The Langmead Guest House has a great reputation and it is in an ideal location to attract new guests. I am looking forward to building on its legacy and continuing its success.”

Dave Furnival, Head of Broker said:

"We know it can be frustrating for Professional Brokers to navigate a large organisation which is why at NatWest we have a unique proposition of each broker having their own dedicated Broker Business Development Manager, someone they can contact directly and who understands the challenges Brokers face. Our goal is to make it really quick and simple for Brokers to introduce business to us so they can give their customers a speedy response. We also recognise ongoing speed and communication is paramount in providing a professional service and helping customers achieve their ambitions. I’m really proud of the strength of relationships my Broker BDMs have with their brokers, this is key to the professional service they provide."
