Understanding Mezzanine Development Finance

Home » Development Finance » Types of Development Finance » Mezzanine Development Finance


What is Mezzanine Finance?

Mezzanine development finance is designed to act as a top-up loan, to bridge the gap between the developer’s available deposit and the loan available from the senior lender. Mezzanine funders will usually secure their position by taking a second charge over the development to ensure their capital is secure.

By supplementing their borrowing with mezzanine finance, property developers can secure the highest return on investment, with the lowest deposit contribution.

This financing option is generally used to reduce the deposit needed to undertake a property development project. Funding can be used to reduce deposits, to fund a gap in deposit, or to allow you to retain funds for future deals.
