First Charge

Stretch Senior Development Finance is a first charge debt that overcomes some of the barriers typically found with high street banks. BLG can typically arrange 65% of loan to GDV and 80% loan to cost plus with rolled-up interest included.

A first charge debt can be used to fund part of the land purchase cost, to fund the build, to improve cash flow or to free up the developer’s cash in order to fund an additional residential development.

Stretch Senior Development Finance

Loans up to 85% of costs (90% including rolled-up interest), from £1,000,000 to £15,000,000. Our most popular finance solution for residential developments.

Super Stretch Development Finance

Typically a blend of 80% senior funding integrated with 10% second charge (third-party) mezzanine, allowing a higher leverage development finance for your schemes.

Build To Let Development Finance

Funding for letting/private sector rental for professional landlords. Available for schemes with 3+ units. Lending up to 65% open market value or 75% restricted investment value.

Mezzanine Development Finance

BLG does not provide standalone mezzanine finance, we work with a focused panel of mezz providers who may offer additional top-up facilities for your property developments.

Lending Criteria

Every BLG loan is structured to meet the requirements of your specific property developments but this general criteria typically applies.

Finance for property development

Our development finance will give you access to the money you need to fund your residential development scheme. Lending options exist for funding land purchases to building houses, flats, ecohomes, and mixed‐use buildings.

We finance property development for new builds and conversions across England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. We can also give you access to top‐up funds or provide loans to build to let landlords.

Typically, borrowing for property development ranges between £1 million to £15 million or more. The release of funds can be staggered over the property development timeline, which is a financing option many developers prefer to take advantage of. The loan term usually has a duration of 12 to 24 months.
