Shawbrook, the specialist UK savings, development finance, bridging finance bank, has released its second episode of ‘A Conversation with Shawbrook’, discussing the current state of the bridging market and the recent stamp duty changes.
The episode is hosted by Gavin Seaholme, head of sales at Shawbrook, and includes the group sales and marketing director at Crystal Specialist Finance, Jason Berry.
The podcast was launched to create an opportunity for Shawbrook’s broker partners to express their opinions and experiences of the key challenges facing their business and the industry as a whole.
In the latest episode, Gavin and Jason explore the updated rules on permitted development, the impact of tax changes on the BTL market, and the future role of technology within the commercial finance market.
The first episode — hosted by Emma Cox, sales director of property finance at Shawbrook, in discussion with Phil Gray, managing director at Watts Commercial Finance — explained how the Watts family dealt with the coronavirus crisis and the challenges they faced.
The news comes after Shawbrook recently made a number of amendments to its lending criteria to be implemented with immediate effect.
