"For all those who have registered on BomaYangu and have chosen Park Road specifically as your preferred scheme, kindly note we are closing the sale.
"We have negotiated a good mortgage deal for you with the listed participating banks; visit your preferred bank and ask for a pre-approval for the balance and you are good to go," stated the PS.
