Commercial Development Finance

ABC Finance Ltd are expert commercial finance brokers. We work with commercial development finance lenders across the whole market and are dedicated to securing our clients the best possible terms.

We work with lenders across the market to arrange finance for a wide range of commercial property developments. As independent brokers, we aren’t tied to any 1 lender, meaning we are free to find the best terms for you.

Our team of experienced advisors take the time to fully understand your project before talking to lenders and negotiating terms on your behalf. We manage the whole process for you, taking the stress out of finding the right commercial development finance for your project.

Commercial property development finance is designed to allow developers or business owners to build a new commercial property. When looking to fund the build of a commercial property, finding the right lender can prove more difficult with most lenders favouring residential developments.

We work with lenders across the market that are keen to fund commercial and mixed-use schemes across the UK. We do the hard work for you, scouring the market to find the lowest possible rates, and in most instances do not charge broker fees.

How Much Can I Borrow

The maximum loan on property development finance is worked out using several figures. Firstly, the initial funding will be worked out on the loan to value (LTV) of the site. The lender will then consider the total borrowing in relation to the end value of the build, this is known as the loan to gross development value (LTGDV).

Finally, the lender will agree to fund a certain amount of the build costs, this is known as loan to cost (LTC).

When looking at commercial development finance, we can usually fund 55/65% of the initial acquisition costs and up to 60/65% LTGDV. Some lenders will restrict loan to cost, however, there are lenders who are willing to offer up to 100% LTC.

Roll Up Your Monthly Repayments

When taking out commercial property development finance, you can roll your monthly interest payments into the loan. This means there are no monthly repayments to make during the loan, subject to fitting the LTGDV criteria for the lender.

First-Time Developers

We are able to offer finance to both experienced and first time developers. If you’re looking to develop for the first time, we would highly recommend working with experienced professionals.

Whatever your situation, we will use our contacts across the market to secure the lowest commercial property development finance rates for you.

Applying For Your Commercial Development Loan

  1. The first step before starting your application is calculating your costs, end value, profit margin and how long the project will take.
  2. Enquire online or call us on 01922 620008. We will talk through your potential application, taking down any relevant details.
  3. We will provide you with a full written agreement in principle. It will detail the interest rate, fees and headline borrowing terms, along with what documents are required to submit a full application.
  4. Once you have completed and returned the required documents, we will submit it to the lender along with a comprehensive report on the project.
  5. Once the lender has assessed the application, they will arrange to meet you on site. This gives them a chance to meet with you and to understand the project more fully.
  6. After the site visit has been completed, your lending manager will usually take your application to the credit committee. These are the underwriters who sign off the application as acceptable to the lender. Once approved, the lender will issue the formal offer, subject to valuation and legal work.
  7. A surveyor completes a report covering the current value, anticipated build costs, anticipated gross development value and expected demand.
  8. Your solicitor is instructed to carry out the legal work and satisfy all conditions. Once satisfied, you will sign the formal offer and return it to the lender. It is important that your solicitor is experienced in dealing with development finance as inexperience here can slow the process down significantly.
  9. The process is now ready to complete and the funds can be released. You are now able to start drawing on your loan and begin the development works.
