Talk to Rangewell – the business finance experts

Property development can mean big profits, but it requires large scale funding. We know the lenders who can provide the scale of lending you need, and use our contacts to help you secure the deal that's right for you.

If you are an experienced property developer, you know the level of funding you need to support your projects.

Property Development lending is designed to provide the scale of funding you need - and help you access it fast.

It ranges from small-scale funding for individual domestic refurbishments to complex finance for major mixed-use developments providing multiple new homes, and may be available whether you are a sole trader, limited company or LLP. Property development finance includes a wide range of solutions.

Redevelopment Mortgages

Redevelopment Mortgages may be available for homes that are basically habitable, but may require extensive modernisation.

Refurbishment Bridges

For light and heavy refurbishments, you might want a 'Refurbishment Bridge’ finance option, which funds 6–24 months of building costs and may include the option to convert into a mortgage once work is complete and signed off.

Property Development Loans

Property Development Loans are a type of short-term lending to finance renovation or refurbishment of a property. It can cover three types of projects.

These are:

  • Small-scale loans to cover light refurbishment
  • Lending to cover renovation and major conversion projects
  • Funding for ground-up development, starting with an empty plot of land

50 – 60% of the site/property value can be advanced with additional stage payments available throughout the build at intervals agreed at the offer stage. Loan terms are flexible from 1 – 12 months, and arrangements with no monthly interest payments may be available.

Loans are also available to fund up to 100% of the development costs.

Major development funding

For more extensive projects and ground-up developments, you may need a more complex finance arrangement.

Funding is often sought by those who already own land, and who will offer it as security to raise funds to cover both land purchase and building costs.

However, experienced developers may be able to secure partial funding for the purchase of land as well as development costs.

Lenders can provide up to 60% of the Gross Development Value or GDV.

Lenders may expect at least 40% equity of the GDV to be funded by the client with the acquisition of the site. Funding will then be provided on a phased basis to cover the costs of development or redevelopment. Very large multi-unit block developments may require pre-sale of each phase before funding can progress to the next stage of the project.

Lending arrangements can include a roll-up of interest and associated costs into the loan, which would be paid off once the development is sold.

What property developers say about finance...

I bought a run-down Victorian property for cash - I didn't have money left to do anything with it. A property development loan covered the refurbishment costs for me.

I saw the potential of a mill conversion close to a London rail link. Thanks to Rangewell, so did the lender.

We had the land. We borrowed the cash we needed to build 26 houses on it, and sold them all off plan.

Helping you build your profits

Lending to suit your project

Property development lending can be arranged to suit most kinds of project, from refurbishing run down property to ground up building.

Suitable for all types of property

• Residential, commercial and mixed-use development • Conversion and refurbishment • Planning gain transactions • Part built development refinance

Raise money on existing property

Experienced developers can also use property they already own to secure lending. With enough equity in your portfolio, you can get development finance to buy, improve and convert more properties without needing cash.

Staged funding

It is common to release funds in stages as each phase of the development is completed and can be signed off. This can help reduce costs, as interest is not payable until the funds are released and drawn down.

Funding based on your needs

Money can be released in stages and repayments deferred until you sell the property, or secure a commercial mortgage based on the final valuation after work has been completed.

Scaled for your needs

Small refurbishment loans can be available for under £20,000, while for large projects, sums of £15million or more can be arranged.

Work must be completed to an independent valuers satisfaction before each staged payment can be released.

Refurbishment loans are for the short term. If you are unable to repay, by either selling the property or arranging alternative finance, your property may be at risk.
