We attended the LMA/APL REF Quarterly Series Seminar held at
Pinsent Mason on 5 February 2020. William Oliver, partner and real estate

the importance of the quarterly monitoring
report for lenders
LMA documentation in the pipeline to look out for:
Free trials are only available to individuals based in the UK
