    Hi all,

    Bank said yesterday that to borrow against a property (not owned by myself) for a company, that i would need to make the owner a beneficiary or director of the company.

    What does it actually mean, entail?

    Does the bank physically hold the deeds to the property? Can it be made as the only security to protect the home owners other assets?



    Thanks

    Companies don't have beneficiaries. They have shareholders. You will need to ask the bank why they are referring to beneficiaries.

    A bank will take a mortgage over the security property. The deeds are all electronic these days, but they would generally 'hold' the title.
