development loans info

  • Development loans are issued to cover the costs of developing or renovating a property.
  • The loan provider will advance a certain percentage of the Gross Development Value of a property – a rough calculation of how much the property will be worth once development has finished.
  • The only essential requirements for obtaining a development loan are a knowledge of the development process, the necessary planning permissions, and an exit strategy for when the work is finished – selling or refinancing, for example.
  • Unlike other forms of property finance like commercial mortgages, development loans are short-term, typically lasting up to twelve months.
