    Development finance is where a client is looking to borrow funds to enable them to build or renovate property which will either be sold for a profit or built and then rented out.

    Development Finance is available for both commercial and residential properties and can incorporate small or large developments including the following:

    – Houses and flats
    – Apartment blocks
    – Houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs)
    – Office blocks
    – Student accommodation
    – Factories
    – Care Homes
    – Pubs
    – Restaurants
    – Hotels
    – Doctors
    – Dentists
    – Vets
    – Retail and semi commercial including shops and flats

    When assessing a development proposition, we consider a number of factors including experience of the developer, type of site and anticipated demand in the area for that particular type of property.

    Lenders typically (subject to due diligence) will lend a percentage of the land value or land purchase cost and then a proportion of the costs to build the units subject to a full understanding of the ‘Gross Development Value’ ( GDV). The amount that a lender will look to lend at all these stages differs from lender to lender and by working with our extensive panel we can make sure that we find the right solution for your requirements. Lenders also require to understand the anticipated ‘Exit’ – whether that be sale or rental.
