Hunter Finance are experts in private property finance in the South East of England.
We help both experienced and first time property developers to build new homes by providing fast development finance at competitive rates.
Hunter Finance was established nearly a decade ago to fill a gap in the development finance market. We saw a need for flexible short term property loans and decided to start our own business as private lenders. Over the last nine years we have built up an extensive client base and have funded over 260 profitable housing projects.
“We have used Hunter’s 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 have recommended them to other developers.” Danny Johnson, June 2018
Applying for a loan can seem like a daunting task. Hunter Finance have a streamlined five step lending process to make it as quick and simple as possible to apply for property finance.
Before starting the application process, gather all of your facts and figures together. You will need to prepare and send all of the necessary figures and documents to us so that our lending team can accurately assess your loan application. Make sure you have included everything before you apply: this will help us to reach a decision as quickly as possible.
✔ Purchase price of land and any existing buildings
✔ Total build cost including all supplies and labour
✔ Projected value of the development on completion (GDV)
✔ Contingency plan with potential setbacks and solutions
✔ Clear timescales (including expected or possible contingencies)
✔ Details of your experience in Property Development
✔ Breakdown of your professional team (builders, planner, architect etc.)
✔ Planning permission (including restrictions) and building regulations
See our property development business plan guide for more tips.
We use our local knowledge of the South East housing market as well as our years in the finance industry to assess the profitability of your building project and offer you one of our fast and flexible financial packages.
If we can help we will say so, if we can’t we will be able to point you in the right direction or suggest alternative financial vehicles.
