Deal of the Month October 2020: Development Refinancing During Lockdown

We may be going through strange times, but large-scale borrowing is still possible. This has been proven by a recent deal we brokered, providing over three million pounds in much-needed finance for a development project.

About the Deal

Our client came to us earlier this year seeking a loan of £3.1m. They required funding to cover the cost of works already completed on a project owned by their contractor, and to complete the remaining job.

The site was purchased by the client a number of years ago and currently had an old pub standing on part of it. Planning had been secured for 16 flats and works started, including groundworks and initial building on ground level.

The client did have experience in refurbishments and extensions – experience that helped their application – but this was their first major ground-up scheme.

The scheme was offered in February, just before the pandemic, and sadly the lender soon reviewed their offering and reduced the LTGDV, so our client had to refinance some of their other properties to secure the funding required.

Over the last few months, we have supported our client through the lockdown, managing lender conversations, and updating reports with QS and valuations.

We’re pleased to say that we have now secured a deal, and the client has the finance they need to build the flats.
