We offer structured, fast finance

Our loans are based on your needs, at Hunter Finance we listen to what our clients want.

We understand that in the property development business decisions need to be made quickly and you will need fast access to funding to get your project off the ground, or to keep it on schedule.

This is why we talk through your financial requirements with you and structure your loan so that you get the money you need when you need it.

How property development finance loans work

Loan structure basics:

  • The loan application is complete when the finance had been fully arranged and agreed upon by both parties.
  • Funding is released as per the contract subject to signing off by a quantity surveyor or architect.
  • With most of our loan facilities, interest is only payable on the money drawn down, potentially saving you thousands of pounds in fees.
  • When the development is finished, any exit fees need to be paid by the agreed date.

At Hunter Finance we are happy to discuss your specific situation and loan needs.
