View Full Version : Property before or after the bank?

03-08-2003, 04:07 PM
Hello - me and my partner are setting up our first gift shop business. We have designed our business plan ourselves and researched the relevant information but we are unsure as to weather we should visit the bank for a loan first, or enquire into the property we would were interested. If I asked the estate agency, would they put the property on hold until I had seen the bank? What usually happens?

Hi Shahla

Perhaps you should seek more specialised advice from a business adviser first. You can find detail sof a business adviser by logging on to the website and entering your details under the your account section.

My initial thoughts are that I would try and access a route to funding first - you may need to tweek your business plan and although the property may be the one you have in mind. If you have sound business plan you will be able to make it work in another property.
Good luck
