Professional property development experts and private lenders in the South East of England and London.
With decades of experience and specialist expertise in property development and values in this area, you can trust us to help you get your property project off the ground.
To discuss your potential housing development, or how much you can borrow contact Hunter Finance today.
In short, the loan amount you can borrow in total is up to 60% of the proven Gross Development Value (GDV) of the finished development, or completed project.
One of our professional, qualified surveyors will conduct a Development Viability Report, which will give us an accurate value of the land/property and the GDV which we will base our lending on.
The application process includes a development viability report completed by an independent surveyor. The report is used to ascertain the value of the land and also the Gross Development Value or GDV when built upon. The GDV is an estimation of how much the property or properties will be worth upon completion using an estimate of current UK housing prices.
We also take into consideration the cost of the build plus other costs such as architects, solicitors and project managers.

“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.”
