Development finance is a type of funding, which we provide for SMEs and first-time developers to finance either the construction of new homes, refurbishments or conversions.
With loan terms from 1-18 months, the development loan is often short-term to fund the build and once the project has been completed, the loan is then repaid through the sale of the property.
Over the last ten years in the development finance industry, we have loaned more than £75,000,000.
Our winning formula for success has seen 500+ developers unearth and take action on profitable opportunities, which has allowed them to access outstanding returns on their investments.
So, if you don’t have enough skin in the game, but you’ve uncovered a project worth investing in, then give us a call 01825 749721 – let us hear about it!

We make repayments simpler
The most common way our developers repay their development finance loan is through a percentage being taken out of the sale proceeds of the completed project.
Upon the agreement of terms, your project will need to be completed in a certain amount of time, often between 3-18 months.
“We have found securing a competitive facility with Hunter Finance a refreshingly straightforward and easy arrangement and would not hesitate in recommending them to other London developers.”
“Highly impressed by their honest approach to doing business, and following through on their promises.”
“I have used Hunter Finance on a number of occasions. They have always provided a no-nonsense, hassle-free, first-class service.”
“We don’t believe there’s a faster decision-making process than Hunters.”
“I will only use Hunter Finance in future – no one else compared.”
“My experience of working with Hunters has been very successful. Their approach is very professional and flexible. They are not like a high street bank, (thank goodness) but individuals who accept that we are the customer. Old fashion values.”
“Although I have experience in developing property, I am developing property for the first time only in my name. Hunter finance has not only assisted and helped me through the project but has given me critical support through the difficult times. This crucial support has allowed me to achieve success in my first development. The team including their bank monitor are approachable and supportive as they wish for us the developers to be successful. I owe a lot of my success to them.”
“We have used Hunters services for our development of 8 new build houses and have been very pleased with the service provided. We have found the company to be not only very professional but responsive when needs arise. Issues or questions are dealt with by people with whom we have built a relationship with not a department. We intend to continue using Hunter Finance on a long term basis and would, and have recommended them to other developers.”
“We have successfully come to the end of a development of 3 new build houses, and Hunter Finance has been with us all the way. It was a much-delayed start, but with them having done their due diligence at the outset, their support in getting it off the ground was never in doubt (whereas a Bank would doubtless have had changes of policy and personnel during that time). Things never go entirely to plan, but they always looked for solutions with us. Because property development finance is all they do, they are very good at it. E.g. they always release each stage’s funds the same day as the valuation surveyors’ report, helping cash flow.”
“I have used Hunter Finance for 2 developments in the past 18 months and on both occasions have been very pleased with the service they provide. The whole process of arranging the funding, dealing with the legal process, and drawing funds are dealt with quickly and professionally. The whole team is a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
“The best development finance around, very understanding and helpful.”
