This is reflected by our superb success rate of in excess of 90%. We are proud to have been the most successful advisor to the Let’s Grow North East grant scheme with over 50 successful applications submitted.

• Appraisal and due diligence support, including attending appraisal meetings and handling queries raised by the appraising body

• Reviewing the final grant offer letter and advising on any points of negotiation

What does this mean to you?
