Richmond Difference

Your loan from Richmond Securities will not just impress you with the great rates and terms. You’ll be reminded of how service is supposed to be, how banks used to lend and how good it is to work with a lender that does all it can to help you succeed.

Our development finance can be used to fund single or multi-unit projects and you have full contact with the decision makers. You and your project will benefit from our underwriting process – it’s been refined with you in mind. You’ll also be well looked after during the build. Our draw downs are arranged quickly, there’s no need to worry about the next chunk of money arriving in your bank.

You will find that we are as flexible as possible to make a project work and our Decision in Principle can be relied on. Just as important is that we have years of experience in funding building projects. So, if issues do crop up ( and you know most builds don’t run perfectly ) you’ll find we are a lender that wants to work with you to come to a solution.

Who are we?

With Tim dealing with the initial enquiries and underwriting and Paul looking after enquiries that move to full application and final underwriting you are being dealt with by committed professionals with a genuine desire to help and fund projects.

Paul has been involved in financial services since the early 1980’s having worked for both Barclays and Britannic. Richmond Financial Services was set up in January 1985.

Tim’s experience in finance stretches back to 2001. His various roles have seen him work with personal and commercial clients with loans varying in size from hundreds to millions.

Both are driven to provide clients with outstanding care and attention as well as make the process of enquiring and applying for a loan as simple as possible.

Barn Conversion near York
New build of terraced and semi detached houses

“I have long since desired a business lender who would be proactive and on-side exactly when I wished them to be; one I could trust to lend me the funds for my developments as and when I needed them; to respond speedily to project proposals in an attentive, positive manner; and not to insist on heaping extra unwanted fees thereby taking advantage of the customer.

Also I craved a lender who would respect my longstanding experience and project management skills, meaning that I counted for something more to them than a human cashpoint.

….It seems clear to me that very swiftly we have built meaningful trust and a solid business understanding. I anticipate approaching Richmond Securities first on all my future projects, with a view to remaining with them indefinitely.”

“I would like to thank you for your assistance in a difficult financial climate trying to raise construction and development finance. From the outset everything has run smooth and payment has been prompt following each valuation.
When the agreed term ended, your assistance in extending the period and renegotiating the reduced fees was much appreciated.”
