    Is there a legal time frame loans companies must reply to loan applications. 9th Nov 17 at 2:02 PM
    Good afternoon, I need to know is there a legal time frame loans companies must reply to loan applications in the United Kingdom?

    So if a person applies for any type of loan (e.g. business or personal) is there Legislation or case law precedents that provide a time frame which companies have to answer by?

    No, because the decision making process may involve in depth checks, especially for business loans, for example.
