Development Finance

Our number one aim is to complete bridging loan and development finance cases in the quickest possible time frame and our average throughput from acceptance of offer to completion and pay-out is no more than a few days. We would never confess to being the cheapest lender in town but as far as we are concerned, we are the most flexible and quickest. We have very few standard lender requirements however we are totally responsible in our lending capacity. We complete all paperwork and get to know all of our clients in depth from the beginning which most importantly includes ensuring a solid and firm exit route.

Important features of development finance products include:

Bespoke funding to suit all requirements
Available for new developments and conversions
Suitable for single and multi-unit projects
Funding for joint venture projects
Available for residential and semi-commercial properties
Land purchases included
Finance for any level of experience

Typical financial features of development finance products include:

Up to 90% loan to cost
Up to 70% loan to GDV
Funding available from £25,000 to £10 million

How Long Does a Development Finance Term Last?

All development finance products are tailored to meet the unique requirements of the project being undertaken. A typical development finance bridging loan will be issued for a maximum period of 24 months, but there are exceptions where the term can be longer.

Some development finance loans may be issued for as little as six months if the borrower wishes to repay the loan as quickly as possible. Early repayment can pave the way for preferential interest rates and lower overall borrowing costs.

How to Apply for Property Development Finance

The key to a smooth development finance application lies in conducting extensive research and performing due diligence. Lenders expect applicants to ensure all possible eventualities have been factored in and the project's success is assured.

It is the viability of the project upon which the lender will base their decision, so providing as much supplementary evidence as possible is essential.

An experienced property developer with an established track record may find it easier to qualify than a first-time developer. However, the flexibility of development finance enables specialist lenders to create bespoke packages to suit almost all requirements.

Applying for development finance via an experienced broker is essential to ensure you get the best possible deal.

How is Development Finance Repaid?

Development finance will only be granted by a lender when a clear exit plan has been outlined by the applicant. The three most common exit strategies for development finance are as follows:

Sale of the finished property or site – upon completion of the project
Refinancing with a specialist exit product – a loan typically issued at a lower rate of interest, enabling the developer to pay off the initial loan and bridge the financial gap until the property is sold.
Long term refinancing – where the development finance loan is switched to a more conventional long-term loan. This is often the preferred option for developers looking to maintain ownership of their property, either for personal use or to let out.

How it Works

get-in-touch
Get in Touch

Clients approach UK Bridging loans either directly or via introducers. Basic questions by way of a “fact-finding” process are used by UK Bridging Loans to determine if the lending requirements are a possibility.

home-valuation
Fast Approval

An immediate yes or no answer is given and if suitable, a quotation is formulated and forwarded to the client, usually by email.

fast-approval
Formal Offer

A formal offer is produced for any client wishing to proceed and forwarded for signature, again, usually by email.

representative-visit
Representative Visit

Each client is visited at the security address for signature of the remaining loan paperwork, including a CH1, land registry charging order. We will also collect any additional pre-requested documentation.

underwriting
Dedicated Underwriting

The signed documentation is immediately sent to our underwriters. Our model is based on very quick completions as each deal is funded using all of our own money. On rare occasions we may request additional information.

access-funds
Payment of Funds

Average completion from initial acceptance to pay-out is usually just a few days. We rarely require valuations or additional legal representation. The land registry charge is removed once the bridging loan is repaid.

Who can use Bridging Finance?

people

Age

The applicant could be too old to obtain a standard high street mortgage as most mortgage lenders now prevent borrowing into what is deemed, “normal retirement age”.

property-condition

Property condition

The property may be in a condition where it is not suitable for mortgage finance and as such a Bridging Loan could be used to complete the purchase and any required work prior to refinancing.

credit

Credit

The applicant may have some adverse credit, however minor, which was previously acceptable to lenders but now no longer fits the high street lending criteria.

income

Income

The applicant may have difficulty proving income requirements needed for more regular finance. This may be due to poor self-employment records, a break from work or a reduction in self-employed workloads or overtime.
