The fees involved are:

  • Valuation fees & legal fees
  • Arrangement fee & loan interest

Upfront Fees Include:

Valuation Fees

A development viability report will be completed by our surveyor. We don’t make a profit on these reports – The fee is paid directly to our surveyor. This is all a part of our lending process.

This gives us a Gross Development Value or GDV which we base the amount we can lend. (Typically 60%). A GDV is an accurate estimation of the value of the properties on completion.

Legal Fees

Our solicitors charge a fee (depending on the loan size) for providing the legal services necessary to set up your loan. The fee includes VAT and all other costs.

These fees are often lower than other lenders as we already draft contracts in place as we only lend to construction projects.

The surveyor and legal fees are the only fees payable upfront with our property development loans.

These fees are paid directly to our respective professional teams.

Arrangement Fee

The normal arrangement fee is calculated at 1 – 1.5% of the net loan amount.


As a specialist lender, Hunter Finance charge interest rates of around 8-18% per annum.

Exit fees

Our normal exit fees are charged at 1.0% – 1.5% of the total gross loan amount. Click here for more information. These fees are rolled into the loan and paid upon redemption. There can be additional fees for architects, quantity surveyors, solicitors and project managers which you will need to consider when applying for finance.

We will always provide you with a full and comprehensive breakdown of the fees that apply to your project.
