Residential development finance lenders
BLG, established in 2003, has the necessary experience to help residential developers overcome the boundaries that can be stipulated by the high street banks. We will give you access to the money you need to fund your land purchases and the building of houses, flats, eco-homes, or mixed‐use buildings. Our residential property finance also gives you access to top‐up funds or previous residential property development loans for build to let landlords.
Choose funding for your next project:
Typical residential property funding terms
Most residential property funding ranges between £1 million to £15 million or more. The release of funds can be staggered over the project’s timeline, which is a popular financing option.
A staggered release of the residential development loan keeps interest payments lower than accessing all the funds at the outset. The interest rates vary from lender to lender and are usually based on risk and the project’s size. Each lender views risk and project size differently, and we will help you find the option that makes the most sense for you.
The residential property development loan term usually has a duration of 12 to 24 months. However, it can take several weeks to complete the application process and secure the funding, so it is best to apply as early as possible. If you have a tight deadline, please let us know.
We offer residential property funding to individuals, limited companies, partnerships, LLPs, and overseas borrowers with a UK limited company.
Repaying your residential development loans
At the end of the loan term, you will need to pay back your residential development loan. This usually happens under one of three scenarios.
- You may sell the homes or flats and use the sale to pay back the loan, leaving you with your profit.
- Refinance the units with a buy to let mortgage if you are intending to let out the properties and build a property portfolio.
- A development exit finance, which is a short-term loan with a lower interest rate. This option is ideal for projects where a buyer is not in place, and you will need time to market and sell the properties, beyond the timescale of your original development loan.
