Stefan’s work

New-Build Development in Battle
Stefan acted on behalf of a developer in the sale of 4 newly-built properties in Battle. As with most new developments, a deadline was set on each of the Purchasers to exchange within a 28-day period. Stefan kept in close contact with the client and prioritised effectively to ensure that the purchasers would be in a position to meet this deadline.

Refinancing
Stefan acted on behalf of a private landlord who, due to a sudden change of circumstances, urgently required a bridging loan to be taken out over 2 properties within a fortnight. Stefan was again able to effectively prioritise in order to ensure that all the requirements of the Lending Company were met swiftly in order to meet the necessary timescale.
