Residential Development Finance

We source UK property finance from £500k to £25m for owner-occupiers or residential property investors for all types of residential property development, from a new build, light or heavy refurbishment, to a complicated renovation or conversion project. We can accommodate development loans for most residential or mixed-use schemes with property finance available in England, Wales and mainland Scotland.

Terms vary, but a typical residential development finance structure includes an arrangement fee, retained interest at a competitive interest rate and an exit fee. Interest rates are competitive starting from 2.5% above base and going up to 10%. Loan to gross development value ranges from 60% to 80% LTGDV, typically enabling the developer to cover most of the build costs over the development and exit cycle.

Experienced property developers will have access to more residential development finance options but we also work with lenders who will consider first-time developers.  Funds are allocated by independent quantity surveyor monitoring reports and less experienced developers will need to add an experienced project manager to the team.

For most owners, a company sale is a once in a lifetime event and so maximising that value creation opportunity is important.
