The client wanted to purchase a commercial property through a bridging loan, and raise additional development funds to renovate it, planning to sell it afterwards. However, as a result of a relatively high LTV and the fact that the client required 100% of the development costs, finding a lender was a challenge.
Both clients live and work in London. In addition to their employment, they receive rental income from a number of properties in and around London.
They had found a commercial property which was currently being used as serviced offices. They wished to purchase the property in order to convert it into multiple residential apartments. Once the refurbishment was completed, the property would be sold. The proceeds of the sale would be used as both an exit to the bridging loan, and a repayment vehicle for the development finance.
They required 66% of the net purchase price of the property and an additional £200,000 in order to fund the development work. The gross development value of the property once the work had been completed was estimated to be £1.4 million.
In addition, it was vital that the bridging loan was in place within two weeks of the offer being made, in order for the transaction to be completed successfully.
Through our close contact with a range of lenders and finance providers we were able to arrange bespoke bridging and development finance for the clients.
Having taken the time to evaluate the clients’ circumstances fully, we were able to source a lender who was able to provide them with a bridging loan at 75% LTV, as well as 100% of the funding for the conversion works. The lender was happy for the proceeds of the sale of the flats to be used as an exit from the bridging loan and as a repayment vehicle for development finance.
By devoting the time to working closely with the lender, the surveyors, solicitors and the clients, we were able to arrange the finance in just 14 days; decisions could be made and acted upon quickly.
This allowed our clients to receive the funding in time to complete the transaction and begin renovating their new property.
