Advantages of Development Finance

One of the main benefits of development finance is that it can pervade the largest funding facility. It allows for funds to be raised the start of a project (secured against the value of the plot or other property) and as construction work progresses further funds can be released.

Many lenders of development finance are even willing to fund 100% of construction costs when lending against the anticipated end value of projects.

Other advantages of development finance include:

  • Property in which other lenders would consider unstainable security, such as derelict buildings and rundown buildings, can be used as security
  • Interest can be added to facilities meaning that monthly income is not an issue
  • Funds can be releases in stages throughout projects rather than all at once, reducing interest rate charges

The costs and fees involved with setting up property development loans can be charged in numerous ways, deepening on which lender is used.

The main four development finance costs however are:

Also referred to as an arranged fee, this is charged as a percentage of the net or gross loan amount.

Interest rates can be charged on a monthly or annual basis and vary from lender to lender.

The exit fee is often a percentage of the loan amount but in some cases can be  the percentage of the gross development value.

This is a fee charges by your broker for arranging a finance facility to suit you.

Other development finance costs which you should also take into consideration include:

valuation fees, application fees, legal fees, administration fees, monitoring fees, draw down fees and telegraphic transfer fees.
