Business as usual
The Company has not ceased to trade. The Administration is necessary because of the Company’s financial position and to ensure the best interests of customers and creditors are served. We will continue to keep you updated with developments in respect of the long term plans for the Company and notify you as soon as practicable if any changes are proposed to be made which will affect your current position.

The purpose of the Administration Order is to seek to ensure the best long term solution can be adopted for customers and creditors, and whilst doing so, continuing the operations of the Company.

Whilst in Administration, the Company will continue to manage its current loan book and the Administrators will be seeking to find purchasers for, and will continue to manage, the remainder of the Company’s business to maximise recovery for creditors. The existing mortgage/loan agreements of borrowers remain in place, the repayment profile of your mortgage/loans is not being changed and you are not being expected to refinance elsewhere. Borrowers should continue to make payments in the usual way.

Whilst in Administration, the Administrators are ultimately responsible for the Company. However, the existing management structure will remain in place and the existing management team will be responsible for the day-to-day operations.

The Administrators and their representatives will be working closely with management and do not envisage any major changes to procedures on a day-to-day basis. The Administrators key objective is to stabilise the underlying businesses.
