Luxury bungalow development goes ahead after Holme Bridging Finance (HFBS) approve a total of £75,000 to move the development to completion.
Having paid cash for the land and funded the footings and block work to this point the developer approached HFBS for a bridging loan of £30,000 to progress the development beyond its completed DPC level to a watertight shell.
Once watertight HFBS were approached to arrange a second account of £45,000, registered as a second charge behind the existing first charge, to take the property to completion and sale.
Dan Yendall-Collings at HFBS says: “With this deal coming in two parts, beginning with little more than a built outline of a property, we did require the confidence in knowledge that the development was on track and would ultimately be saleable at the various stages of development. Once we received favorable valuations at each stage, and confirmation of the projected sale price of up to £325,000, we were confident in giving the go-ahead.”
The first charge loan of £30,000 was offered at 1.45% rate over 12 months which HFBS completed within eight days. The second charge of £45,000 was completed within a record breaking three days.
HFBS offer one the LOWEST second mortgage rates in the bridging finance market starting at just 0.95% month with advances from just £5,000.

Simpler, quicker, cheaper.
Holme Finance Bridging Solutions (HFBS) ‘A’ star service completes property purchase by providing property developer with a first charge bridging loan for 68 thousand pounds.
The loan was required to purchase a three-bed semi detached house that had been converted into two flats. In a derelict state it was ripe as a development project to bring it back to a habitable state and profitable investment.
Contracts were exchanged with a delayed completion date set at six months allowing the renovation to begin in earnest to make the property habitable and therefore mortgageble.
Dan Yendall-Collings, senior underwriter at Holme Finance Bridging Solutions says: “In theory the delayed completion date would have enabled complete renovation works at which time upon completion a traditional mortgage route could be explored. However with several unexpected problems and delays the six-month period passed quickly. With the properties not quite completed, and the completion date looming, the developer’s broker approached us for a bridging loan.
Just days away from not being able to meet his commitment, and potentially giving the vender back two fully renovated flats for nothing, HFBS provided a £68,000 bridging loan against a valuation of £137,500 within seven days enabling the developer to complete on the purchase as agreed and organise refinance once he had secured tenants for both units.
With an average completion taking less than seven days from enquiry to money in the bank, no solicitor involvement, no minimum valuation, and entirely privately funded, no bank mandates, no fixed rules, HFBS really mean business.
