  • All prospective borrowers will be assessed for & will need to demonstrate clear affordability.

A Guide To Investor Security Against Loans

  • Security & charges against it will be recorded on the appropriate register e.g. Land registry for property, Companies house for charge over shares or specific loans.
  • Additional security in the form of legal agreements will be signed by the borrower e.g. Loan Agreement, Personal Guarantee & Power of Attorney

Risk Warnings For Lenders

All risks can lead to a reduction in the rate of return and a partial or full loss of original invested capital. Examples of such events may include but are not limited to:

  • Lending to individuals & businesses can result in payment defaults & arrears.
  • Some borrowers may have a shortfall by owing more at the end of the term than the value of their asset.
  • The value of the asset used as suitable security may go down in value over the term and could lead to a shortfall on the proposed repayment date.
  • The costs of issuing legal proceedings against a borrower in breach of their agreement can often be high and cause losses by lender groups.
  • The cost of enforcing legal action can also be high and cause losses by lender groups.

Advice

Whilst OSC seeks to minimise the risks to lenders, it is vital that lenders do take the advice they feel is necessary to make a fully informed decision.

OSC recommends that advice is sought from suitably qualified professionals before committing funds to any Lender Group.
