  • Loan-to-GDV up to 65%

Marie Grundy, Sales Director at West One Loans, commented:

“West One’s Development Finance is designed with small developers in mind who are underserved by High Street and private banks. It can be used for greenfield, new build residential developments or brownfield major renovations and conversions.

Small and medium-sized developers often find funding their projects to be a headache. Without established relationships at private banks or on the High Street, with insufficient equity or simply with projects outside the South East of England, getting finance agreed is often a challenge.

Our underwriting is renowned for considering each case on its merits, to meet the needs of underserved borrowers. The launch of our development finance range is a natural extension of that and is designed around the challenges many of our existing bridging borrowers face.”
