Development Finance

Property development finance can provide short-term funding for either more extensive new construction projects or large renovations, helping developers to free up their personal capital for other projects or unforeseen expenses.

Loans cover both land purchase and building costs. Loan amounts are based on a percentage of the gross development value at the end of the work Usually development loans are drawn in stages (referred to a “tranches”), part of the loan will be drawn to acquire the land, and subsequent funds drawn for the development.

The reporting criteria to the Lender is usually very strict in Development Finance to ensure that the property is being developed in accordance with a plan approved buy the Lender. There will virtually always be “step-in” rights allowing the Lender to complete any development work to ensure that their security is always protected.

Development finance is amongst the more complex property finance products and there is typically more room for negotiation with the lender on the terms of the loan documentation. It is therefore critical that you have the right lawyer in your corner who can really add value by improving the terms of the loan for you.
