My personal loan from NatWest was planned in advance because I like to do plenty of research before committing to something as important as a building extension. I wanted to make sure the loan would be possible and that it was at a competitive rate before I started employing architects and builders. I was in regular contact with our local branch’s loan adviser and they finally sorted out a very good loan for me and once that was agreed I got on to the job of planning this extension. We’d already had the go ahead from the local council so it was all systems go once that all important loan was finalised. Sometimes it’s best to deal with your own bank for such an important loan and I am pleased that I entrusted NatWest with my loan.
