Development Finance

Development financing is a short-term lending solution, often lasting 6-24 months, aimed to help with property purchase and construction costs.

Development Finance Explained

Development financing is a short-term source of capital, often lasting between 6 and 24 months. It is intended to assist with the acquisition and construction expenses of a residential or commercial development project.

This can be a new construction, conversion, or renovation of a single unit or numerous units constructed in multiple phases.

Most development loans are structured so that monthly interest is rolled up and added to the loan. The loan, plus any interest, is then returned in full at the end of the period. This is usually done when you refinance or sell the house. The majority of lenders will need you to apply through a broker.
