ANY PROPERTY GIVEN AS SECURITY, MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE OR OTHER DEBTS SECURED ON IT.

Lending for the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme and Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business.

You should not apply for an amount that you cannot comfortably afford to repay now and in the future to avoid the possibility of legal action.
