Q:

How can I find a bank sort code?

A:

Used by financial institutions in the United Kingdom and Ireland, 6-digit bank sort codes represent the bank and the bank branch. Issued for both savings and checking accounts, bank sort codes appear on personal checks, debit cards and on bank statements. Financial institutions started using these codes in the 1960s to maintain accuracy as the popularity of automated banking processes increased.

  1. Locate the bank account number on a personal check, debit card or bank statement

    Typically found on the front side of debit cards, the bottom of personal checks or at the top or bottom of bank statements, bank account numbers feature an 8-digit sequence.

  2. Locate the bank sort code on a debit card

    Printed to the left of the account number on a debit card is the bank sort code. This code contains three pairs of numbers separated by two dashes.

  3. Locate bank sort code on a check

    The bank sort code is located before the bank account number on the bottom of the check. Bank sort codes feature three pairs of numbers separated by two dashes.

  4. Locate bank sort code on a bank statement

    The bank sort code will appear next to the bank account number on a bank statement. Look for a 6-digit number separated into pairs by two dashes.

    How do you get approved with a hard money lender?

    A:

    Approval for a hard-money loan requires collateral. Most hard-money lenders loan a maximum of between 50 and 70 percent of the collateral's value. Hard-money lenders intentionally keep the loan-to-value ratio low so that it is easier to recoup losses from a borrower's default through the collateral's repossession and sale. Without collateral that has a sufficiently low loan-to-value ratio, a hard-money loan is impossible to obtain.
