Your CV when applying for finance
What should my CV include?
Details of the company : Who you are, who the company is, how long you’ve been running for.
Previous projects that you’ve carried out with evidence.
This can include pictures before and after, brief descriptions of what work was done and how it increased the value of the property.
Details of the team around you. The Contractor, Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor etc. Show their previous experience and the projects they have worked on in the past.
What we don’t want
We don’t require previous employment history and education background, unless they are property related.
Don’t exaggerate your previous projects - The Lenders will find out!
Why do we ask for a CV?
So that the lenders can get a good understanding of previous experiences, history, background in the industry and the scale of projects you’ve carried out. They also like to know about your team and their experiences and background in the industry. This is because 99% of the time, your team will be delivering the project rather than you.
