Development finance


The neighbourhoods in which we live and work are changing. Whether you are refurbishing a single residential property or undertaking a large scale mixed use development our team can help ensure that the financing solution your project requires is in place on time and on budget. 

Our team is a multi-disciplinary group of experts with wide-ranging experience of working with UK and overseas banks and specialist non-bank lenders, as well as with institutional and other investors, developers, construction contractors, public authorities and housing providers on all types of development financing whether that finance is for building a new property, refurbishing an existing one or creating new places.

We are particularly well known for our work in the build to rent, hotels and affordable housing sectors. The complexities of development finance mean that you need a team that can provide you with robust legal advice on your funding arrangements as well as on related property, planning, construction, tax and corporate matters. Our genuine sector focus brings in-depth market experience enabling us to deliver commercial solutions quickly and efficiently whatever the type and size of asset being financed.

We act for both borrowers and lenders financing (both conventionally and Islamically) all types of commercial and residential property from homes to hotels, student accommodation to shops and sheds, retirement villages to office to residential conversions. Acting for both borrowers and lenders gives us a broad understanding of the requirements of differing market participants allowing us to cut through key issues and get the deal done.
