Development Finance

Development finance has grown considerably over recent years. The traditional banks that were lending in the property development sector have changed their criteria and appetite significantly and lending has become much more restrained. As a consequence, other lending institutions have entered the market which has essentially meant more choice where finance is required for development.

At Direct 2 Lender Private Finance we have considerable expertise and experience with arranging development finance. For over 30 years we have developed and grown relationships with many institutional lenders, including not only the main traditional banks, but also other alternative financial institutions such as challenger banks. It is as a result of these relationships that we are able to help our clients achieve their objectives and ambitions.

There is no substitute for experience, and we are respected by our peers and lenders alike for having an in-depth knowledge of this market. Our approach has been built on the many years that we have worked in this sector and the contacts that we have made in the market. We believe that presentation and understanding of the components of each transaction is essential to getting the right results for our clients. Much of our business is from repeat clients and also referral business from clients, accountants, lawyers and architects.

We have arranged hundreds of millions of pounds of finance on many different development schemes including, single high value units, multi property developments, luxury homes, and commercial property.
