BLG provides commercial property finance to developers and business owners looking to build, convert, or renovate a commercial property. The lending market is geared to residential development finance, so the help of an independent finance broker is vital if you are to get the best terms.

We offer loans for commercial developments and projects located in England and Wales and areas with strong demand. There is no restriction on the number of units you intend to build, and loans are 100% secured on the development property.

BLG can support your commercial developments with finance for both commercial and mixed-use developments.

    How much commercial property lending can I access?

    Our commercial property finance offers:

    • Lending to 60% Gross Development Value or 65% if pre-let
    • Loans from £1,000,000 to £5,000,000
    • Lending for build duration of 12m to 24m

    Your monthly interest can be added to the loan, so you have no payments during the loan term.

      Lending for first time commercial developers

      We support commercial loans for first-time developers and can help you put the pieces in place you will need for your application. For a successful application, you should aim to reduce the lender’s risk by providing full details of the project and your team’s experience.

      It is crucial to have an exit strategy plan. However, while most commercial development funding is provided where there is a pre-let or pre-sale in place, BLG will offer speculative commercial development funding on specific property types and in certain areas.

      “All documents are clear and the way you keep Clients informed, all the way along the funding process, is refreshing for us”

      “With regard to what should be improved at BLG, we work with many lenders in our business and we do not get the help and response we have had on the two projects with all at BLG on our Funding for our developments.”

      “We would particularly mention Dave Edwards and Tom Pitts as being central to having a smooth working relationship and being positive and helpful at all times. Their guidance in helping us navigate the project from inception to completion was invaluable. As was their patience, particularly at the beginning. We look forward to many future projects with the BLG team.”

      “We would like to express our appreciation for your support on our development in Bristol. We were very pleased that, from the outset, you shared our vision of the project to convert a dated but classical building, that had outlived its usefulness as a school, into unique luxury apartments with views overlooking the city. We found our dealings practical and streamlined. Monthly payments were processed in an efficient and timely manner.”
