Under normal circumstances we are able to provide loans equivalent to 70% of the estimated GDV of the project. For experienced developers we can often provide funding up to 100% of all site purchase, development and finance costs, when additional security is available. We can also introduce Mezzanine Loans secured on a 2nd charge to provide any additional ‘top up’ funding.
