    Hi PC,

    Wondering if a company could purchase a vacant land. Having 3 directors. Are there any lenders that take half debt into there calculations if some directors have joint mortgages on other investment property.

    Yes possible but as directors giving guarantee all the personal debts taken into account .if a joint debt some lenders will take their share only.

    But just because you can doesn't mean you should

    None of the shareholders can ask for their share of profit. Seek legal advice on use of any structure
