Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.

Property Development Loans Explained For First-Time Borrowers

Property Development Loans Explained For First-Time Borrowers

Big lenders offer residential and commercial property development loans to help groups or individuals planning a property development project acquire the necessary finance. These loans are generally long-term and large, and offered only after the borrower passes a thorough application process during which they prove their financial strength and ability to pay back the borrowed finance.


There are several property development loan options. There are those that cover up to 75-80% of the project value, and can be arranged against the gross value of the development. They typically feature arrangement and exit fees. One-hundred-percent property development finance is harder to get, but if you expect your project to bring you high profits, you might be able to get it. Some lenders in the UK also offer joint venture finance with up to 100% financing in which you get paired with a partner of the lender who provides the financing the bank does not. You will have to share profits with the partner.

Uses and Interest

Property development loans, as offered by the big lenders, cover not only the land purchase and the building costs, but also those related to infrastructure and project promotion. Interest rates can be both fixed and variable. When it comes to property developments, one type of rate is not necessarily better than the other, so it all depends on your circumstances.

Increase Your Approval Chances

It should be noted lenders are more likely to approve your application for a property development loan if you have a big project that has already planning permission and project plans, as well as some projection of the cash flow. This helps lenders accurately determine how many risks they will take by financing you.
