Common Questions

Most Popular Questions

Development finance is a type of funding designed for property developers to finance residential, commercial, or mixed-use construction projects. It covers the costs of land acquisition, construction, and associated expenses.

Development finance is typically structured as a short-term loan that is released in stages (drawdowns) as the project progresses. Interest is often charged only on the amount drawn down, and repayment usually occurs once the project is completed and sold or refinanced.

  • New build residential developments
  • Conversion projects (e.g., turning commercial buildings into residential units)
  • Large-scale renovations or refurbishments
  • Mixed-use developments

The amount you can borrow depends on the project’s size, the lender’s criteria, and your financial situation. Lenders often provide funding based on the project’s GDV, typically up to 60-70%.
