Deal of the Month September 2019: Fast Auction Finance for Land

Finding finance at short notice can be daunting if it’s your first time purchasing at an auction, but it doesn’t have to be when you have a bridging finance specialist by your side. This was the case for one of our recent clients who purchased some land.


About the Deal

Our client came to us after winning an auction for a plot of land that had planning permission to build three executive style properties. This was their first auction and their first development project. They had 23 of their 28 days left to pay up, so needed finance in a very tight timescale.

With a gross debt of £500,000, we identified a lender who did not provide the ‘market-leading headline rate’ but was able to get the deal done in the timescale required. This goal was the client’s priority, especially after putting down a 10% deposit that was at risk if he did not make the deadline.

Our Specialist Property Finance Advisor, Jamie Williams, organised all professional parties involved in the transaction to ensure we could close the deal as quickly as possible. The client secured the plot within agreed timescales and is well on his way to the first drawdown of the build.
