For the ‘Borrower First’ experience
Because every case is different.

Roma Finance love to lend and aim to provide the ‘Borrower First’ experience to those looking to create prosperity from property through learning, collaboration, innovation and integrity.

Our approach is to underwrite the borrower before the property and have solutions for a multitude of property project scenarios including auctions, conversions, refurbishments, standard bridging, developer exit, below market value properties and development finance. Our solutions are tailored and available on residential and commercial properties and are minimal hassle to our borrowers.

We love to work with those with aspirations in property:

  • Property Investors and Developers
  • Those in the trade; builders, plumbers, scaffolders, etc who want to create property opportunities for themselves
  • Those successful in another professional field, looking to create prosperity from property

Roma, now celebrating its 15th year in business, was founded by Managing Director, Scott Marshall. Scott started the company by taking out a mortgage on his home and, in the process, honoured his grandparents, Rose and Max, who Roma is named after. These values have remained at the heart of Roma’s journey and have continued throughout the life and philosophy of the business.

We have a team of Relationship Managers ready to support customers on their property journey.
We look forward to working with you.

“The process of obtaining the loan was strong and easy. Everyone I dealt with has been really helpful and getting the redemption sorted was straightforward. Good process, people and rates, I would definitely recommend!”

“Obtaining the loan through Roma was a straightforward process and I would certainly do business with them again! Communication was excellent and everyone, including the amazing Vicky, was very responsive. The support I received from the team was outstanding, particularly when there was a risk of the project running over term. I’m extremely grateful to everyone at Roma and would definitely recommend their services to others, because without their support, I wouldn’t have been able to finish the project.”

“Great to work with from start to finish, I really felt that we were in it together. it was the first time I have ever used a bridging loan, and they made me feel comfortable with asking any question and I felt supported throughout”

“Great service from the very first phone call. Was told what was possible and how, the timescales and what I needed to do, very reassuring as it was my first time using a Bridge Product. Everyone from start to finish was exceptionally helpful and understanding.”

“Outstanding service with competitive rates. Their bridging loans enabled me to buy 2 properties which I have now been able to mortgage. Highly recommended and I will be using them again.”

“Great service, as always! Fast, efficient and friendly. Recommend to most people we speak to in the property industry.”
