Property Development Finance

How big is your property development project?

The finance options available to you are dependent on the scale of the work required:

How much can I borrow / how much will it cost?

How much you can borrow & how much it will cost will come down to your project and the security and experience you can demonstrate. Headlines on what we can source through our network are: 

FUNDING SOLUTIONS FOR DEVELOPERS

A range of finance options have been developed by the market that can overcome these issues for you.

1. Short Term Finance

Short-term finance offers developers a quicker way to access development finance.

We work with lenders who can provide finance within as little as seven working days as a short-term solution to “bridge” the gap of any shortfall in funding.

Bespoke bridging loans can be tailored to specific purposes and lending terms, but they are commonly used for developments such as:

Light refurbishment bridging loan

Usually with slightly lower interest rates, these are tailored for smaller development projects. There is no strict definition of a light refurbishment project, but usually it is one where:

Heavy refurbishment bridging loan

These are offered as finance for larger development projects, where the lender’s risk and administrative involvement is greater – consequently their interest rates are higher.

A Heavy Refurbishment bridging loan will be appropriate for projects where:

2. Development finance

The best finance rates for development funding are commonly reserved for experienced property developers: to access the best deals lenders will require evidence of a proven track record of successful projects. There are lenders we work with who are happy to provide property finance to new of less experienced developers if your project satisfies their criteria.

Gross development value (GDV)

The estimated open-market value of your finished property or development is a key metric in development finance (along with development experience and your personal financial situation).

Most development finance lenders are comfortable with granting development loans up to 65% of the GDV, if they are comfortable with the project plans and financial projections.

Up to 100% of the development finance costs

If you require funding to buy land and then the development costs, dependent on the project lenders will want you to put in 30% of the acquisition cost. The balance & 100% of the building costs can be funded on the basis that overall funding does not exceed 65% of the GDV. For the right projects additional mezzanine finance can be sourced up to 90% of GDV.

A number of lenders in the development finance market are prepared to provide the entire funding for the purchase of property/land plus development costs to borrowers who qualify for development finance.

If the cost of servicing a 100% loan is not an issue this can be an extremely useful scale of funding for your project, allowing you to invest in other projects at the same time.
