  • Building finance

    Property development finance

    For a property developer, this is the key part of the funding requirement.  Getting the right finance is just as important as getting the right site to develop.

    With a range of products from the lowest interest rates to the lowest deposit requirements, joint venture funding or bridging loans we have the funding you need.

  • Finished!

    Development exit finance

    Repay the development funding based on the finished value of the units while a sale is arranged.

    Because the site is finished it will typically be at a lower rate than the property development loan and you'll be able to raise some funds to move onto your next development project.

    Property development finance frequently asked questions

    Can I fund a devlelopment even though I have bad credit?

    Yes - Funders are looking primarily at the value of the finished property and the build costs. As long as the build makes sense there will be a lender there for you.

    What are the monthly payments?

    The loan is paid off at the end of the development from the property sales or from refinance to a term mortgage or end of development loan. There's no requirement to cover any interest payments during the loan.

    Can you only fund standard residential property?

    No - of course there is finance available for houses and flats but we can also provide development loans for commercial property - retail, office or industrial, holiday lets, we can fund partially complete developments or mixed use properties.  So long as there's demand for the property you're building there will be funding available for it.
