With a very small bond outstanding (R180,000) I wanted to get an extra R100,000 to do renovations. Absa (my bank where bond is) just laughed it off as I am "self-employed" (real estate) and do not qualify without my full pedigree and proof of income, etc., although they could just look at my bank statements to see what's what! Just picked up the phone to call SAHL at Somerset West Mall, within a short time, and thanks to consultant Kobus Nel, a bond triple in the required amount was approved. Well done, I recommend you to all my clients.
