What is
Development Finance?

Development finance is a type of funding specifically designed to support land or building development projects. This includes financing for the construction, renovation, or refurbishment of residential, commercial, or mixed-use properties. Development finance is typically short-term and can cover various stages of a project, from initial land purchase and planning to construction and completion.

Key aspects of development finance include:

Development finance loans are usually short-term, ranging from 6 to 24 months, designed to cover the project duration.

Funds are often released in stages, aligned with the completion of specific phases of the project, such as land purchase, construction milestones, and final completion.

Interest rates on development finance loans tend to be higher than traditional mortgages due to the increased risk. Additionally, there may be arrangement fees, exit fees, and other costs associated with the loan.

Lenders typically require security in the form of the property being developed or other assets.

Development finance is suitable for a wide range of projects, including new builds, conversions, refurbishments, and large-scale renovations.
