Bridging Finance Designed For Developers

If your client is looking for support as they approach the end of their project, we may be able to help.

Help your clients bridge the gap with our finance products

We have been working with developers for many years and have considerable experience in helping them with their finances.

As you get to the end of a project the last thing you need is delay. We know how difficult it is for developers who have empty properties for sale and money tied up in a site. You’re almost there, but you can’t yet realise the profit from all your hard work. This could be holding your client back from investing in a new development, or hindering their personal plans.

We can lend from £150,000 to £3 million depending on their circumstances.

This product is designed for experienced developers and intermediaries. It is not available to people selling their own home and looking to buy a new one to live in.

We have a maximum term of 12 months on all applications. The table below illustrates our fees:

Up to 60% 0.65 % per month 2% of the loan amount £150k £3m
Up to 70% 0.75 % per month 2% of the loan amount £150k £3m
  • Unregulated lending only – but available to personal or corporate borrowers

  • No ERCs
  • Minimum term 3 months

How to get more information and apply

We will take time to understand your client’s project thoroughly so we can advise on their options. If you’d like to discuss further, please contact us on 01799 582886 or email

You can also learn more about how we help developers with our full range of Development Finance support. We provide residential property development loans to experienced individuals and housebuilders with knowledge of the market. We’ll consider projects throughout England and Wales, but are particularly interested in sites in London, the South East and East Anglia.
