​Residential and Mixed-Use


We have been funding residential and mixed-use developments since inception.

We actively support developers with both senior and stretch senior development finance facilities and have a continued appetite to support experienced developers in the sector going forward.

Pricing and Parameters

We finance a range of residential and mixed-use opportunities including:

  • New builds and refurbishments
  • Part built development
  • Flats and/or houses

We consider each potential development project on its own merits but some key considerations when appraising a new scheme include:

  • Borrower experience
  • Location
  • Proportion of reasonably priced accommodation for occupation by domestic buyers
  • Viability of exit through refinance or sale

For mixed-use schemes, we generally accept up to 30% of the overall GDV which can be made up by the commercial element although we have accepted more than that in certain developments in the past.
