Development Finance Broker

Property Development Finance

Property development finance is designed to facilitate the construction, conversion, or heavy refurbishment of buildings. Development loans enable you to take on larger or multiple projects at once, while maintaining a healthy cash flow. Funding can be used towards private dwellings, mixed use, or commercial projects. The loan is designed to assist with the project only during the build. Once the project has been built out, the loan is usually repaid through the sale of the property, or refinance. Funding is ideal for property investors, landlords and developers.

Light vs Heavy Refurbishment

You’ll often need to speak with a property finance broker to work out whether your project falls under light or heavy refurbishment. In general, light refurbishment is limited to mainly aesthetic improvements to a property, while heavy refurbishment usually involves structural changes. A new kitchen, windows, or central heating installation will fall under light work, while extensions, electrics, and rebuilding counts as heavy.

How much funding can I get?

Once you’ve found a site and have planning permission it’s time to get in touch with a property finance broker to work out the amount you can borrow. The funding will be determined by land and development costs, lender fees, and professional costs. Development loans also usually include contingency costs at 15-20% which are set aside to cover unforeseen expenses. In general, we can secure loans of up to 100% of development costs and 70% gross development value.
