Partner, Head of Borrower Bridging & Equity Release
Burt Brill & Cardens
Having spent a number of years specialising in residential conveyancing, small-medium sized developments and light commercial work, I took a sideways step in early 2016 to focus exclusively on property finance and related transactions. Since that time I have acted for countless different borrowers on a variety of different loans ranging from relatively small £30k bridging loans to multi-million pound development loans, and everything in between.
I understand the need to keep the momentum flowing within any loan transaction, and enjoy working with clients and their brokers to progress matters as quickly as possible. Although I am usually based at our Hove office I regularly travel to meet clients in and around the London area.
In 2016 I set up McMillan Williams’ Borrower Bridging Department to focus on bridging loan, development finance and commercial mortgages all with a view to streamline the work, meet necessary deadlines and maximise client satisfaction.
These kinds of finance are specialist areas which shouldn’t be dabbled in. I regularly work with all of the main lenders and welcome the opportunity to work with emerging ones. I am familiar with lenders’ usual requirements and have good lines of communication with their lawyers, all of which help to avoid any unnecessary delays.
In 2018 I set up our Equity Release team to specialise in Lifetime Mortgages, again with the intention of streamlining the process, pre-empting any issues and providing best possible care and service levels to clients.
Equity Release mortgages are becoming an increasingly popular choice for the over 55s to release equity from their home, but these types of mortgage must be entered into carefully. My team and I have overseen the completion of multiple different equity release schemes and understand the importance of keeping clients informed at every step of the way. We offer a professional, friendly and efficient service to ensure a stress-free completion.
“Excellent service, Harry Tuke and Jordan Powell were extremely professional and efficient, and helped us meet a very tight deadline. They were both extremely responsive to communication, and really went above and beyond to ensure we were on the front foot.” - Mr Y
“Harry Tuke and his team were fantastic. Not quite sure how they managed to pull it off, but they successfully completed a multiple security lending deal in under 8 working days. That has got to be a record! Harry knows his stuff and the rest of his team were always polite, helpful and accessible. If you're looking for efficiency, speed and diligence in a solicitors firm, I doubt you'll find anyone better than MW Solicitors.” - Ms O
“Incredible job finalising a complex commercial mortgage. I will certainly be using you and your company for future services” - Mr H
“Harry Tuke, Jordan Powell and the team were excellent, speedy, knowledgeable, friendly, professional and polite.” - Mrs P
“I would recommend Harry Tuke I have always found him to be professional, very proactive! got a sale over the line in a month, what more could you ask for! Give Harry a call you will not regret you did” - Mr D
