CrowdProperty Comments

The borrowers are well experienced in the Manchester HMO market having completed a number of similar projects. They tend to sell their projects on at completion but are keeping an open mind on this one as they believe its close proximity to Bury town centre makes this an ideal HMO for the professional market
