Location: Crystal Palace

Loan amount: £547,500

LTV: 75%

Purpose: Capital raise on existing property for acquisition 


An experienced property investor approached us for a capital raise against an existing maisonette in a high-demand area of South London. 

With the extra £100k capital from the refinance they intended to purchase a share of the freehold and obtain planning permission for development. 

After finalising costings and schedule of works they intended to exit the loan with development finance, for which a valuer had provider a GDV of £900,000, enough to cover this loan and the planned works. 

With this in place, we were happy to back the deal.
