Property Development Finance

Development finance is available on all commercial property types, including new build and refurbishments of offices, warehouses, factories, and shops. It is also available for residential new builds, conversions, and renovations.

But finding the right solution is not always easy. Funders will want evidence of architect drawings, planning permission and a clear exit strategy. Some will even want evidence of previous projects in property development.

What is Development Finance?

Development finance is exactly as it sounds – finance to cover the costs of development, in particular the development of property, for example:

  • Build or refurbishment of residential property
  • Construction of industrial units
  • Conversion of offices into residential flats (or vice versa)
  • Development of land with planning permission
  • Restaurant, hotel, or guest house renovation
  • Auction purchase and refurbishment
  • Holiday let renovation
  • Partially completed residential development

DMK Finance take the time to understand your project and can support whether you are an experienced operator or first time developer. This can be a lengthy and stressful process & it is critical to find the right funder and professionals to assist with the project from inception to completion.

    Bridging Finance

    Bridging finance is simply a loan that bridges a gap. It is usually time-sensitive and short-term, often written bespoke and made available quickly.

    An ideal solution when buying a property at auction or when a property is considered uninhabitable, and therefore, unmortgageable. Bridging loans can be used to purchase and renovate the property to make it mortgageable.

    DMK Finance collaborates closely with clients to establish viability and works with 1st & 2nd Charge lenders for both Regulated and unregulated loans for commercial all sectors and residential.
    Is bridging finance right for you?

    Bridging finance is normally used for property but can be used in non-property scenarios too. A bridging loan can be used for:

     

    • Buying property at auction
    • Refurbishing a property that is currently unmortgageable
    • Undertaking works in readiness for new leases/tenants
    • Probate delays
    • Credit repair
    • Covering a cash-flow shortage
    • Covering VAT or tax liability

    What is Invoice Financing?

    There are two types of invoice finance available to businesses and both raise the funds against the invoices of your clients.

    Invoice Factoring – the responsibility of collecting the debt from the clients lies with the lender. This can be done with or without bad debt protection.

    Invoice Discounting – you maintain full control of collecting the money so your clients are unaware that you have such a facility (see: Confidential Invoice Discounting). Again, this can be carried out with or without bad debt protection.

    There are a number of reasons that companies may look at using invoice finance to improve their current situation. It may be that you are struggling to cover your running costs or that lengthy invoicing terms are restricting the amount of new work you can take on. If so, then it may be worth considering invoice financing companies. This allows you to gain access to essential funds as soon as your invoices are sent out, giving you the capital, you need to grow your business.

    Asset Finance

    Asset Finance is the term used to describe the financing of the asset by the use of a financial instrument such as Hire Purchase or Leasing.

    Terms of the finance range between 2-5 years, although for some assets terms of up to 10 years may be considered.

    When a Funder looks at your application, they will consider both the financial status of your business combined with the age / suitability of the asset being purchased.

    I have known Donna for many years and have used her services to provide finance for a number of different projects.

    To get to the point when you need specialist finance things can become complicated. For me I had a mixed bag of assets all in different Limited Companies and some in my personal name. I also had no borrowing which can be problematic.

    I had spoken to several brokers over a two-year period and even tried a few with no success. There was always a hurdle we could not get over.

    If you want someone who won’t give up, someone who goes the extra mile and does it all with a certain swagger then Donna is the broker for you.

    In a world of imposters Donna is the real deal.

    I cannot recommend her highly enough.
