Not only did David source us the best mortgage rates available, he also helped negotiate the terms of the deal with the vendor and was 100% involved from start to finish. David was highly professional and the whole process ran smoothly. We cannot recommend his services highly enough.
I would just like to extend my thanks to the team at KEY for tirelessly overcoming all the obstacles that were put in their way in obtaining our finance, without which I would have been forced to sell some of my portfolio.
Firstly may I say I think the review undertaken by Key was an excellent piece of work and I congratulate Tony Newham and the management team for it. It’s a very honest appraisal of the business which doesn’t shy away from identifying the issues that need tackling.
Tonys attentive service at every stage of our loan process has ensured that our loan was agreed, processed and drawn down far more quickly than I could have ever achieved in dealing with a Bank on my own.
I thought that I was going to have to sell the houses that we had built at a knock down, unattractive price which would have removed all profit from our scheme. KEY saved the day by obtaining finance to repay my development lender, and keep the repayments affordable whilst waiting for the market to improve to obtain better prices for the houses.
Key offer a breadth of knowledge and are able to tailor a solution to your individual requirements. I approached Key for some ideas in relation to a client, and also on a personal level and they were able to look at it from a different perspective than I had previously considered.
Key Commercial were fundamental to our business moving forward when our funding options were limited. It was refreshing to deal with people who are approachable and pragmatic in any given situation. They took a real interest in the project and draw downs were kept simple and unhindered. They understand the importance of cash flow and we were always able to pay our contractors on time. It was a pleasure to work with David and the rest of the team and we hope to do more deals with them in the future.

“We had a very positive experience with David and Liz who secured us a mortgage for our HMO. David explained from the outset what we stood to achieve. Liz was in regular contact with us throughout the process. And all our expectations were met.”
I worked with Key for both my personal property finance, and for my practice finance, and found them to be professional, highly knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with my sector.
Steve was there for me at every point during the practice purchase stage, even attending meetings with the bank with me, which for a first time buyer like myself can be daunting. In terms of the property side, I cannot thank Liz enough, who was efficient, very quick to respond and very knowledgeable when it came to this sector.
I would not hesitate to use Key again for any future acquisitions, and have already recommended their services to friends.
Many thanks to Key for all your help, the project would not have been possible without your speedy response to the financial requests. The whole process was made so much easier with your professionalism. I will not hesitate to get in touch when the next one comes along.
I am just writing to you to say thank you to Faye for sorting out my loan.
You really pulled out all the stops to get the deal and went beyond the call of duty to push it through.
I would definitely use you again and recommend you to anybody I know as a person who will get things done. Thanks again.
Kind regards, Sam Urmston
“I have worked on two completely different cases with Vicki recently and on both occasions found her to be very professional and highly efficient in the way she operated. I have no hesitation in recommending Vicki”.
I am sending this email to thank you immensely for all the hard work you have put into helping me acquire 20 Pepper Road.
I was expecting the entire process from making an offer to the completion to be a stressful process. However, with all your assistance and hard work, you have made the whole transaction run smoothly.
I have no doubt in my mind in recommending you to any of my colleagues for any commercial financial transactions that they wish to pursue.
‘Elaine has been extremely helpful, knowledgeable and supportive from the very first contact to the very end with completion. She is incredibly patient and happy to go over things quite a few times until it all makes sense. She was always putting us first and happy to chase other parties where needed too. We would strongly recommend her and if we ever buy another commercial property we would most certainly go through Elaine. Thank you so much for all your help’
Dear Steve, I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help and assistance in getting this highly complicated transaction completed. Without doubt the proposal could have fallen over had it not been for your diligence and professionalism. It is such a pleasure to deal with someone who understands how to get deals completed when everything seems to conspire against us. Here’s to the next one – hopefully a whole lot less complicated.
