    I live in Northern Ireland and applied to SFNI for finance, however my record lies with SFE - this is despite my home address clearly showing my address is in NI. I've been told by SFNI that they have put in for a transfer of ownership from SFE and until this comes through they cannot assess my application for finance. No-one can tell me how long this can take as it's an internal process - any idea of timescales? Thanks.

    Hi BeansOnToast!,

    There aren't any timescales specifically for transfer of ownership. As it's a transfer from SFE to SFNI it would likely be completed within 4 to 6 weeks.

    The Education Authority would be able to advise you more accurately. Contact details for your local office can be found using the EA Finder on the SFNI website here.

    Regards,

    Stuart

    Thanks Stuart, it's been 3 weeks already so hopefully I'll not have too much longer to wait.
