Our Leeds based client had come under pressure from their investors. They had hit a cash flow hole, which was preventing them from building infrastructure to open the remainder of their 100+ unit site. Investors were demanding progress, but cash was required.
We were presented by our client with a piece of land owned outright, at an original purchase price of £2,000,000. We were asked if an over lend in relation to the purchase price was possible, planning had been gained and would provide an uplift in market value, demonstrated by a recent valuation instructed by our client.
Having identified three lenders that could work on a deal of this nature, we set about delivering the best possible terms within a tight time frame. We used a new to market lender, and raised £3,300,000 net within 7 working days from acceptance of heads. The speed of the transaction was further improved as the lender used an existing valuation previously instructed by our client.
Our clients said, “It is rare to have a lender and adviser exceed expectations. On this occasion we have been happy not only with the nature and speed of the facility, but Conduit’s ability to adapt along the way with our interests coming first”.
Delivering new to market lenders is a constant part of our work. Having carefully assessed our client’s problem and suggesting a viable route, we were able to deliver a solution they thought unavailable in the market.
We have recently launched planning consent finance from £25,000 to £150,000, for developers looking for additional capital to maximise opportunities and realise value from existing sites.
