Manchester bridging lender Roma Finance more than doubled its lending in the first half of 2017 compared to the same period the year before.
In four of the six months it achieved consecutive record months in terms of value and volume of loans written.
It issued nearly 1,000 agreements in principles valued over £200m.
Scott Marshall, managing director at Roma, said: “Despite a number of new lenders coming into the short term lending space, our knowledge of the complexities of bridging cases and our ability to be pragmatic when challenged means we still remain a solid choice for those looking to acquire investment properties quickly, renovate them or change their use.
“We are also finding the number of introducers we’re working with on multiple projects increasing which is very satisfying in such a competitive market.”
