Joint Venture Property Development Finance In North England

Area
Cheshire
Capital Raised
£1.94M

The Scenario

A regional house builder, who had a successful 15 year history of property building in the north west of England, required a substantial amount of finance to fund their next development project.  

The developer purchased a piece of land in Cheshire, which they intended to build a 13 house site on, by securing a long term revolving credit facility with a high street bank.  

As a result of an unforeseeable policy change with the bank, the developer was denied a further extension of the facility to cover the cost of construction. 

The Solution  

In order to start construction and avoid any costly delays, a joint venture package was arranged for the developer. 

The joint venture package was agreed as the following: 

  • The developer had to provide 5% of the total cost of the project - £169K 

  • The joint venture partner agreed to contribute the remaining 95% - £1.76M 

  • The joint venture partner would take first charge over the site until repayment 

  • Total facility - £1.94M 

  • Term of finance – 15 months 

This joint venture facility was calculated on a peak cash flow basis for the acquisition and construction of Phase 1 of the site in Cheshire.  

The finance provided allowed the developer to repay the facility from their existing bank and realise a land profit on day 1.
