FAQs

This is one area you won’t want to jump straight into the deep end. We’ve compiled some of our most frequently asked questions to put you in the best position when considering whether UK property finance from Aurora Capital is right for you.

What type of projects can development finance be used for?

Depending on the lender, development finance can be used for a broad range of properties including residential, commercial, mixed-use, single, and multiple units, ground-up new-build developments, conversions and renovations and development-to-let.

Who can access development finance?

Subject to lender criteria, limited companies can apply for development finance. Many lenders will only lend to those who are able to evidence previous experience of successfully completing an equivalent development project.

How is development finance structured?

Development finance is typically structured in two stages. This begins with the initial day one loan which helps get the project underway. Lenders will consider up to 60% of land purchase price at this stage. Then, the rest of the loan is then drawn down in stages depending on the progress of the project (upon certification from a monitoring surveyor).

How is interest calculated on development finance?

Interest rates will be calculated by:

 

  • The amount borrowed
  • The percentage borrowed against the overall costs – current value and build costs combined
  • The loan term required Interest rates typically start at 5.5% and are often calculated annually.
What are development finance exit routes?

Typically, development finance is exited through refinance or sale of the property. Refinance quite often involves the developer exiting onto a longer-term loan facility where they retain ownership of the property and rent it out to repay the loan. Cash redemption is also an acceptable exit route if the applicant is able to show evidence of a cash event substantial enough to clear the loan occurring within the term. Investment portfolio maturity, pension lump sum or other cash events are typically considered.
