Growth of Build to Let

Due to the regulation changes in the buy to let market, getting finance to fund a buy to let project may be more difficult than ever. As a result, there has been a significant growth in landlords building their own properties to rent out to tenants.

Traditional lenders' Build to Let development finance

Typically, approaching a traditional lender such as a high street bank may not be the best route to Build to Let finance.

Securing Build to Let finance from a traditional lender can take longer than you think. It is not uncommon for traditional lenders to take up to several weeks or even months to provide Build to Let finance. This could cause lengthy delays in your Build to Let project, and ultimately it could drive up the overall cost of your development.

Traditional lenders often are reluctant to supply all of the finance required for your Build to Let development. The majority of traditional lenders will only lend up to a certain percentage of the Build to Let development costs. It is likely that they will agree up to 60% of the development costs; this may necessitate applying to another lender for the rest of the development finance.

Finally, traditional lenders are only prepared to provide the funds required in stages. The funds are often only released after periodic inspections and when certain works are completed. This could seriously derail your Build to Let project.

If you need Build to Let finance, then we can help. Through our relationships with specialist lenders, we can secure the best financial solution to suit your set of circumstances.
