Property Finance

We understand the frustration many developers encounter when seeking funding from banks, often because no distinction is made between construction risk and development risk. We recognise the difference and take the time to understand your project so we can offer you the most suitable funding package.

Property finance

£1 million - £10 million+ investment size

We typically look for:

  • construction projects with a clear plan for sale
  • experienced development teams with a comprehensive construction plan

We typically provide:

  • secured loans
  • up to 70% loan-to-value


We provide all the funding, take the first charge, and secure our lending on the property.

The projects we seek to finance generally have planning permission in place and a tenant or purchaser contracted at the outset to provide us with visibility of an exit. We bring a wealth of experience to the table: our property development portfolio includes student accommodation, hotels and data centre projects.
