5. HOW WE CONDUCT OUR BUSINESS
We operate in the market as a Financial Broker, obtaining our clients funding from various lenders in the market. Aurora Capital is not a financial lender and we do not lend our own money. We do not have any exclusivity agreements with any particular lenders and we have access to the wider market, which allows us to source the most appropriate funding to suit our client’s needs. We will always act in our client’s best interest to secure funding. Aurora’s representatives will communicate directly with you and will submit applications to lenders on your behalf. Once a suitable loan has been sourced, we will provide you with all of the relevant information (such as interest rates, charges, repayments), discuss with you the terms and conditions, the associated risks and ensure that you understand your commitments before proceeding to contract. We will keep you informed through every step of the process and provide you with an explanation for credit decisions. We shall only request information from you that is essential for us to source and obtain the funding you require.
6. SERVICES PROVIDED
6.1 Free consultations will be provided to our clients, by telephone conversation.
6.2 You will be required to complete a short application form which captures the key information we require to progress with sourcing your loan. You may also be required to provide supporting documentation such as Bank Statements, Financial Accounts, I.D., VAT returns, Contracts/agreements, but not limited to. Once we have sourced the most appropriate funding options for you, we will advise you of this and we will provide you with the offers and contracts from the lenders. We typically like to obtain 2-3 different offers for you to decide from. We advise and explain which option we believe best suits your financial needs, but you are not obliged to take that option. We will go through the loan amount, interest/cost, fees, total expense, early repayment savings etc. Once you have decided on an offer we will then proceed to gather the legal contracts and any other stipulations and would focus on getting the loan completed for you for as early as you need it. You are under no obligation to accept the offer or proceed any further. If you decide not to continue then we shall not charge you a fee.
7. CREDIT CHECKS
7.1 Whilst we are in the process of sourcing you finance, either Aurora or the lenders may be required to complete a credit check against your Business and / or its owners. We will inform you if a credit check is required, including the type of credit check, and we shall seek your approval before proceeding to complete a credit check.
8. COMMISSIONS AND CHARGES
8.1 We make our money by commissions paid by the lenders with whom we have a professional broker agreement and do business with. These commissions will vary depending on each lender but will have no impact on our advice given.
9. CLIENT COMMITMENTS
9.1 As the client you shall provide honest information to Aurora. This includes all supporting documentation such as financial statements, existing loan agreements, VAT returns, bank statements, but not limited to. You shall not withhold any information and you shall notify us immediately if your situation changes whilst we are sourcing the loan or whilst a client of ours.
